    It's in a message box titled "Microsoft DirectX 7.0a Setup". These games I'm trying to open are "ZIP" files; I don't have a clue what that means. I'm sort of a novice. It's not the games I want, I suppose, but to figure out what I did wrong when installing them. Any help you can give would be great. Thanks.

    You will need to unzip your games, you can download an evaluation version of WinZip at: http://www.winzip.com/

    After unzipping and installing your games, see if you still get the error messages.

    Let us know if this works or not.
