FOR INSTALLING FILES
this as the best way to get the files in the right place**
There are also
less download errors with the .zip format
Download WINZIP if you don't have it--click here
Once installed, click on the Winzip icon to start the program
Click on OPEN--a window will pop up
Find the .zip file that you downloaded from my site. Click on it and the
file name will appear in the small white text box in the window.
Click on OPEN--a new window will pop up
A directory of your hard drive will be displayed in the new window--find:
3/resource/dogz or catz if you want to install a BREED FILE
3/adopted Petz if you want to install ADULT PETZ
Click on the EXTRACT button--the file will unzip and go to the right place!!
**You don't need
Winzip to unzip .exe files--but they are much tricker to use**
They also tend
to get corrupted by free site servers
You need to remember the name of the folder you downloaded the .exe file
into--you can make a temporary folder to make it easier--call it "mydogz"
Download the .exe file
To unzip an .exe file you just need to CLICK ON it--it will unzip all by
When you click on the file a WINDOW will pop up.
YOU MUST TYPE THE PATH TO THE FOLDER WHERE YOU WANT THE FILE TO GO IN THE
WHITE TEXT BOX. This is the hard part! You need to know what to type
in the box. On my computer I just type C:\Petz 3\resource\dogz but I have
my Petz 3 program in a different location than YOUR computer. You
need to know EXACTLY the sequence of folders that lead to where you want
the file to go. It will be a long sequence of words and you must start
BREED FILES go to the Petz 3/resource/dogz folder
PETZ go to the Petz 3/adopted petz folder
Different method: Make a temporary folder, download the file, click
on the .exe file, type the name of the TEMPORARY FOLDER in the text box
(for example: C:/mypetz), click on unzip, the file will unzip into the
temporary folder. Then go to FILE MANAGER. Locate your temporary
folder and DRAG the unzipped files to the correct place.
you are having difficulty getting the new breedz to show up at the adoption
center, please go to the Information Booth page on my site for tips.
