Thread: What Has Happened?

  1. #1
    Anyone help?
    I have been using 2.4.3 for quite some time with no problems.
    Yesterday I tried to download some patches for my daughters game. In the search results I got what looked like a TV screen and when I opened them I got the message. "This is not a valid win32 application" I then did a random search for anything, got 160 results, and the all showed the little TV screen. Anyone tell me what is wrong?

    rename it from filename.exe to filename.bin or filename.iso

    to do that you may need to set windows explorer to show known file extentions
    in "tools>folder options>view>advanced settings" UNcheck the box for "hide extentions of known filetypes"


    then with nero or other burning software, you can burn the .bin file as a disk image, you shouldn&#39;t need the cue file.
    you then install the game from the CDR (if it doesn&#39;t have errors)

    PS kazaa aint the best place to get disk image files.

    I still haven,t done as you suggested yet Vargas. I am still a bit concerned though. Everything in my search window now has the little TV window thing. Do I need to make some adjustment to my setup?
