Specs: Windows 7
I've tried downloading this game called The Cursed Forest from www.indiedb.com and I haven't gotten anywhere. It loaded on my computer just fine, but when I click on it to open up, nothing happens. I seriously need some help with this game. Should I try downloading from another website or something?

✔ Best Answer
Let's see if we can separate the download from the installation to show where it is going wrong:

1. Uninstall the program.
2. Download the program and Save the file rather than running it.
3. Find the saved file and check that it is about 735MB.
4. Double click the saved file to start the install.

Let us know at which stage it goes wrong.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

The installation went perfect. =) Now I don't know which folder to click on in order to open the game. There are so many. @-@

Apparently you have to double click the Launcher file, like this:

===============================================
Go into the folder called "Bin32" and run the one called "Launcher.exe". Then it will ask you for a password and username. You have to get an account at crytek for that part. Luckily, it has a button right there for you to sign up. After that, just log in and you're done - Play the game.
===============================================

If you are not set up to show all file extensions it will just show the name Launcher rather than Launcher.exe (so I hope there is not more than one).

Just for future info a Bin folder is the one that often contains the program (or binary) file.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I don't remember ever seeing the launcher for a program in its Bin folder.
That must be a rarity, or something fairly new.

Bin folder is often used in Linux and not particularly new. Programs are often called binaries. Like other things Linux it has crept into Windows where programs are Linux based.

I didn't provide any useful tip!

I did find a Windows program on my computer that is launched from
its Bin folder. It is ASUS's bundling of the ATI video driver package.
Virtually all the other programs are launched from a higher-level folder
than one containing the nitty-gritty binary-bits, when there is one. But
I don't have all that many programs installed.

Anyway I just realized this has nothing to do with me. You were saying
"You're welcome" to Derek, and typed my name by accident.
