Hi, 
 
I know what you mean. Why is it right now that the game installer are complicated compare to before installer which you can 
just click NEXT during  installation and it's done. Right now the installers are in need another 3rd party software in 
order to run their games and some who are not IT really find it complicated. Here is the main reason why you make it 
complicated, is either your software games is  illegal copy, this means it's pirated in order this software to run it will 
need many steps like unzipping files using 7zip, next is to manipulate the software. Some program also run on Winrar, you will have 2 option for this the WINRAR program and 7ZIP.
 
Thanks,
 
Tony Stevenson.

Once you have a compress file then you must need to decompress it. Some files are being compressed because they contain too much memory and that why they cannot be Handel easily. So for this purpose a compression is used to compress these kind of files. Once these files are compressed then to use them you must need to decompress them. In your case study it looks like you have files that are compressed by using 7 zip so you need to install 7 zip to decompress these files to run on to your computer. This will insure file security and will be easy to use also. So you will be happy with your game. I hope this will help you a lot in solving your problem.

7 zip is one of the best and fastest open-source compressing program I have ever used. It can be used to open not only supported file formats, but also many files that can't be done with any software. Also, its shell extension is clean and nice to use. There are many file formats especially .7z is a popular compressing format with highly compressing ratio.

If you don't like 7 zip, you can try the programs listed in this article.
