Welcome to BC MissAmerica520.
Perhaps I have not formally welcomed you to the forums, and for that I apologize.
I know how frustrating it can be to get (either by purchase or gift) a game that you can not use. Enlighten me and post back what you have already done. The computer that you are using would help too, even if it is just a make and model number.
Have you put the game in the drive, and waited for it to go through the initial loading? Sometimes it will autorun-in most cases, it is the easiest way to begin the installation of a new game.
I am under the impression that you have older versions of the game. In the case of this, did it ask you if you wanted to install the game in the same directory? The programmers like to do this so that you can bring over your characters to the next version.
Start.exe is just one of the files that you could be looking for. Others include, startup.exe, and install.exe. Did you happen to find one that said readme?
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.
