Thread: How to install a downloaded torrent application

  1. #1
    I just downloaded the application SImCity 4, and it came with a few files, including the EXE, however, it won't open since it seems to need proper installation. How is it done for programs with many files?

    you need to burn them to cd (thats what a .bin and .cue file are) they are images of the original disc the game was on. You can use Nero burning rom, or alcohol %120 to burn them (i prefer alcohol %120) the exe that you have may be a cracked executable for the game once installed (not sure tho)

    Can I use my current software (ROXIO CD CREATOR) instead of the ones you say? Also, should I put one .cue and one .bin in each of the 2 cds necessary? Again, I appreciate your help.

    In my experience, roxio sucks for doing anything. sides, i dont think roxio will burn images. trust me, use alcohol.

    also, the .cue files tell the burning software what files to use, so you cant mess it up. I use alcohol, and you just select "image burning wizard", and in a few minutes, you got your disc ready to play. You could mount the image, but i suspect thats a little beyond your needs at the moment.

    i just downloaded alcohol. Any special things I need to do for a correct burn of this type of file, or just make the 2 cds normally, with the 2 files in each cd?
