My computer choked big time when I tried to install
that file. This is what you should do.

First, close all running programs. You need as much
memory as possible to extract this file.

Choose RUN from the START menu and browse to find and
run the self extractable file.
Extract it to a temp directory of your choice.
Make sure that directory is clean. It makes it
easier to find the files.

In that temp directory, you should be able to find
setup.exe which will setup the extracted files into
the mssdk directory.

No no... this is better:

Buy a new harddrive.
Install it as primary device.
Install Linux Red Hat.
Switch to OGL.

No more problems and not left behind anymore.

oh yeah.. Developing games for Linux is a much better idea than for Windows. Linux Users wont even buy their OS let alone any games for it.

Linux has it''s place, I wouldn''t say game development is it.

You will be left behind my friend, we are ALL moving to Linux now.
And Linux user DO buy their games.
Developing under Linux is as portable as any other OS.
You can simply use OpenGL, OpenAL or such and it''ll run
smoothly on windows aswell.

I really care about you not being left behind in the game industry. Its just a good advice for the future.

Good Luck my friend, I will help you ... always.
