    • I had to unzip the file to the desktop then manually move it to the c: drive and then renamed it to “games”. The original name was some thing like mosco_ or something like that. I downloaded the SR2 and the SR1 but you do have to rename them. I named one “games” and the other “games2.” Make sure you use the correct name in the c:\games prompt or c:\games2 like I did. It works fine.
