    1. Your title is rubbish. Read the forum rules.

    2. Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 would not run on XP without patches; I doubt it works very well on Vista.

    3. Go to Windows Explorer, click on Tools, Options.
    a. Click on the "File Types" tab
    b. look for "ZIP" in the "File types" window.
    c. Edit it so that "Open" has the right value. I don't know what that is as right now I'm in my Linux boot and I can't see it. I WILL post what it should be later or tomorrow when I boot Windows.


    Ignore item 3 and read the next reply. It's more complete.
