BIN is just data. He needs to make an EXE in order for the game to actually run. I don't know how, though.

lol

A bin for games typically is a disk image. Now depending on the platform it runs on, you'd either have to burn or emulate it.

Kindly state the platform the game is for.

Fools.

Bin/Cue is an image format, much like an ISO. You need to mount it or watch it (Depending on if its an image from a DVD) by using a compatible program. PowerISO will mount data disc images, while the VCL player is a free way to watch DVD image rips. Another alternative is to burn the image to a CD/DVD to mimic the original item. That option costs a disc, however.

(Notice, I in no way have encouraged warez or illegal file sharing/usage in any way. These procedures reference credible programs and can easily be applied to legitimate situations with disc images. Thank you)

Save yourself the cd, and download a copy of Daemon Tools (google it).

Then just mount the .cue file in Daemon Tools, and you're set ;D

Don't confuse the kid, PowerISO's the same thing, so just let him worry about one app at a time.

Maybe if you look at the time of my post you'll notice I posted a second after you.

Calm the fuck down son.

I would recommend Alcohol120% over Daemon tools....

By the way, what kind of queer game is this you have, that can't run on xp?
