Is there a file called Setup.exe or similar? If so double click it.

Where did you download it from? If you give a link to it we can advise further.

downloaded from one of your help forums under "pinball" someone sent a zip file so it could be run in vista.

This is how to get it to work click here but I'm guessing you can't see the file extension. To fix that go to Control Panel > Folder options > View tab and untick the "Hide extensions for known file types" option, click Apply and OK to exit. You should now be able to see the Pinball.exe file (shown in the screenshot below), double-click it to run Pinball. click here
