I recently downloaded free version of Lemonade Tycoon 2 from www.games2download.com, with the help of DAP 5.3. After completion of download when i opened the file, i saw that it was not an executable file, nd had no format. the size of the file matches wid dat said in da website. can ne body tell me how 2 run da setup???

In the zone
First open a folder.....goto Tools>>Folder Options

Click on the View tab....

Uncheck the Hide File Extensions for Known File Types option....

Now goto the folder where u saved that file and check if it has some extension like.......zip, .exe , .msi , etc....

If it doesnt have any extension then try adding some extension and try to run the file....

Just add a Dot followed by extension like .exe or .msi

Try these extensions...

EXE
MSI
ZIP
RAR


or goto the webpage where u downloaded that file and see the extension there....

Yes, adding .exe can make a difference. Well i had some good software setup, n i wished that my friend shouldnt open it. So what i did was changed the .exe to .jsd n it worked!!!! It can be opened only when it is renamed to .exe. Its a good idea. U may try it!!!!!
