Hi my brothers and sister have this game 'Chips Challenge' on their school computer and wanted it on our computer so we googled it and downloaded it
from: http://takegame.com/arcade/htm/chipschallenge.htm
when we unzip this folder and clik on 'Chips.exe' an error comes up. this is what the error says:

Cannot find WEP4UTIL.DLL. Windows needs this file to run D:\WINDOWS\TEMP\CHIPS.EXE.

When I look at the what is in the unzipped folder it has this file in the list WEP4UTIL.DLL

When I downloaded it I didn't save it in the D drive but in another partition.
could that be the problem? if I download it and and right click and click 'extract files' I don't know what to do after that

Look for a setup.exe or install.exe in the folder where you extract the files.

When u unzipped this file, did it have a setup.exe or install.exe file??

It may have to been installed, so the files go in the main c: folder/s.

If either of these files are in the unzipped file run either to install the files, so they install the files properly.

That error occurs because you are trying to run it from within the zipped folder.

Extracting it to a folder and then running it is required.

I just tried it to test, and got the same error unless the files were Extracted first.

Thanks for the Help Godfather that was the problem I hadn't extracted it into the folder.
I have another game for my brothers called Rescue Rover which i downloaded from this site : http://www.dosgamesonline.com/index/game/Rescue%20Rover/261

The error is kind of hard to explain. I have extracted into the folder but I can't figure out How to start playing
I click on Start.exe and it comes up with a menu of options press 1-5 for different options pressing 5 say it will start the game
but it says:

this program will not run properly under windows 3.1 (I use Windows 98SE)
please run this program from DOS
press any key to continue

when I press enter it say MS-DOS has terminated. Click the close button etc

When I try going through MS-DOS Prompt and go into where I extracted the files and type START (That what the Readme.txt say to start the program)
it comes up with the same menu I had before so I press 5 to start the game
it comes up with the same error but when I press enter it comes up with the folder of where I extracted the game to so I try to type Start and press enter but it doesn't work.

Sorry if I got a bit longwinded but if you download the game then you can help me get the game going
cheers

Sorry, but as I run XP (which has no DOS), I don't want to go there.

If the game "does not run properly under windows 3.1" I would suggest it is compliant with very early DOS versions and may not necessarily run correctly under DOS that gets installed with Windows 98.

1993 eek!

the computer that is at school I think runs win 95 or 98
and it plays all right on that computer

even if you guys had any sugestions or if you can find out where I can get the game cause in this download you don't get to play all the levels
