Did you run the install that you downloaded? If not, try running it.

It might be more convinient to have the full thing rather than download the installer and then have to download other components durring install. I have the full thing available at my website (in my sig) for just this reason. Download the zip file, unzip it, and run the installer (don't run the installer from within the zip).

If it is an old game that could be the problem. I remember my young cousin wanted to play to Gungan Frontier (a Star Wars Episode 1 game, so it is not THAT old) and it required Quicktime 3. Quicktime 4 would not work with it (crappy Quicktime, it is EVIL! )

Maybe you could try to find the QuickTime version that is required for the game.
