Try downloading the retail version--those have all the instructions you need. This is not the place to get advice on how to further your pirating. If youw ant help with illegal file sharing, find another forum.

Probably you are new here. KingTomato is not. If he said to the user we will not help him with his illegal activities, you should follow suit and not help the user.

Not sure if there is a forum rules page. Basically, it's just common sense. No spamming, no helping with illegal things, no helping people break rules, and keep it decent.

Hey!!!!!! first and foremost I am a engineer myself without a job, pirating of any sort indirectly affect me and my job prospects also. Secondly I am not pirating, I have a cd key of my own. Its just that in my spare time ( which I have in abundance coz of no job) I built a very good computer myself. I couldnt install this game on new computer coz this cd is damaged and I dont have any back up. Infact I have a functional expansion cd. I dont want to spend another 40 $ when I have a legal cd key of it. If it is against the rules of this forum to help me atleast please tell me where can I get any help.
Sincerely,
Cybergnome

Usually game manufacturers have an address where you can send the bad CD, and in return they will send you a new cd. Its was designed for purposes just like these--Broken, cracked, scratches, etc cds. I'm sure if you were to take some of that abundant time to read the manual, you'd have found that by now.

no helping people break rules

I cant say thats against the rules to tell somone what program to use to unzip files he downloaded, if he only asked what program unzip the files "just the extention" then you would tell him, so thats not somthing that make you or him break any rules.. as if i ask "what program can unzip *.tar files".. then you would answer on that.. smile

The implimentation of the files is illegal, thus telling them how to unzip something, is a wrong as giving them a working illegal file.

hehe, so if you download a program thats free, then it dont tell in the readme that you have to use this or that program to unzip it, then if you ask somone how to do it, and they tell you "sorry, cant tell you, it's against the law" how would you feel? and if a user want to, then all he have to do is to search the net and he will find the answer, or just look on a download page for window programs and he would know.. so try help instead of allways say "it's against the law", leav that part to the user asking and what he thinks is wrong or right smile i know this is a forum for and about mirc, but you should try to help with all questions if you can.. and if you dont know, then dont send any posts.. and if you dont know, you have two programs that are really commen to use to unzip and pack programs, one is Winzip, and the other program is the one this user need.. smile
