Game won't load - Notepad appears instead

  The Belarussian Mafia 10:03 03 Feb 2007

My lad is trying to play Rugby 06. (If I can't get it working before the Six Nations starts this afternoon he'll probably have a panic attack.) It's been working for months, but suddenly started refusing to load. Notepad comes up with a load of HTML coding instead! This has wierded me out, and I want answers...

I had a look at their website,not helpful,so would suggest uninstall/reinstall.

Thanks Slayer. I feared this might be the only solution. I just thought there might be a quick solution that would avoid backing up game saves & reloading.

Right click the shortcut, select Properties, click `Find Target`, check the folder that opens for large .exe files, try one of those.

brundle - sorry I didn't get round to thanking you. Your suggestion was enough to put me on the right track. Much appreciated!
