Default Help needed to install back up pc games

sponsored links

 
I have purchaded back up pc games from several members of this forum but can never successfully install them. Most of them have a file called crack which I believe to be the patch but I am totally new to this so please be patient and answer in step by step simple terms.
Thanks in advance Iain

  1. Install as per usual from autorun or whatever.
  2. After install is finished copy/drag the EXE from the crack folder to the game directory replacing the original.

You may want to rename the original EXE first in case you need it later to say install an official game update. If you don't know where the game directory is, then have a look at the properties of the shortcut on the startup menu/desktop.

You maybe just dragging a shortcut to the game folder if it is zipped,
"Extract" from the zip file to the game folder overwriting existing file
for instance if it was SOFII you would Extract to: C:\Program Files\Soldier of Fortune II - Double Helix browsing the extract to explorer window
