    problems installing quake2


    I'm having problems installing quake2

    i downloaded and installed using CNR (Click'n'Run)

    but after CNR reports that everything completed successfully, i cant find a shortcut to start the game anywhere, i've tried using the run command, and the icon changes to te quake2 logo, so freespire knows what application i'm after, i tap enter. but nothing happens.

    can someone point me in the right direction?
    cheers

    You sure about the complete installation/installer?
    are some of the files missing?
