Take one Win XP Home Desktop. Create a new folder, say..."GAMES" and
leave the folder on the desktop.

I take a game from my ZIP Drive folder and via Drag n'Drop, I slide it
first onto the desktop. I can then exec the game from the desktop.
Great! So I drag n drop from the desktop into the newly created GAMES
folder. No exec! Won't play!!! Slide it back out onto the desktop
and she plays, slide it back into the ZIP Drive folder and it plays.

What must I do to put that game, PYSOL 4.41, by Francis Xavier
Uberhauser, into my newly created GAMES folder and play it from that
folder? . Oh I got it....ask Mr Uberhauser? Hmmm if I don't get an
answer here I guess I will!

ThanXXXXX!!!

Only thing I can think of:

right-click on the "GAMES" folder, then click on the "Security" tab. Make
sure you have "Read & Execute" access to the folder.

Start over. Extract and install the game into the folder you want it to
finally be in and leave it there.
