Where did you download the game from? Can you post a link? That file type I think is an old E-mail file, but not sure.

It's a Non-recognized application by MS, that is, even though it says x-msdownload it does not conform or have anything to do with MS and may well be of a malicious file type as many do conceal nasties.

Web of Trust gives this site a good rating. You might want to download from here. http://www.bigfishgames.com/do.....5dc3355635

There is a free trial but You must purchase the full version. I am suspecting that you got your download from a torrent.
