On the install disk you would find two files resource.1
. Copy resource.1
over to a folder say C:\Quake
. Then rename it from resource.1 to resource.LZH
. Now you can open this renamed file using a tool like 7-Zip
. Extract all the files to the folder C:\Quake. You would find Quake.exe
extracted from this LZH file. Double click on Quake.exe to play the game.
If you cannot play Quake.exe due to incompatibility, then you can use DirectQ
. Just drop DirectQ in the same folder as Quake.exe and run DirectQ.exe. For more information visit this page
Just googled this site : http://quakeone.com/
You would find much useful information there related to playing Quake 1 on Windows 7.
