INI error message

  1. I down loaded a game for my wife called Simpark.
    the down load went fine
    unzipping the program also OK

    I go to click the icon to try the game, and I get an error message saying
    'Error loading resouce c/sim/data/simpark.spd, If you are not using a CD, check the simpark.INI file for proper path information.

    can anyone tell me what this means and what I need to do to correct this issue?

    Using XP Japanese version

    Hmm.. You downloaded a game that wants to see a CD? Surely you are not doing anything illegal, are you?

    rest assured I am not, I bought a 30 day service to download games for $6.95.
    I bought the service to download one game yet I am not able to get it going on my system, can someone help find out it the simpark.ini is on the correct path

    Riight.. That sure doesn't look like a 100% legit outfit.

    "Abandonware" is still against the law. (Although I personally consider abandonware to be a morally correct thing).

    Downloading/playing any of the (abandonware) games that are designed to work with a CD is going to be a tricky hit and miss.
