Have you “unzipped” the downloaded file, as your window header says “zip” file and the .exe should say .TR2

Hey there. Thanks for the reply. It's unzipping when I double click on the .exe. When the unzipping completed it appeared a black window as if the game is about to start and then this error. Haven't changed anything on the file names.

I don’t know why that’s happening. Hopefully someone will know the answer to this problem.

Just had a thought. Normally you right click on the zipped folder to unzip the folder not the .exe.

That's what winrar software does. It opens a zip file to see what's inside (without unzipping) and double click on what you want to deal with. In this case the .exe file. I use it in all TRLE games. But I tried now to unzip the folder seperately and still the same error notification. :?

Have you tried, well... running the setup? :D Unzip the files, right click the exe, select "Create shortcut". Right click the shortcut, go to Properties, in the Target field, add "-setup" to the end of the path, with the quotation marks, and add a space inbetween as well, apply changes.

An example of what it should look like:
D:\Example\TombRaider\tomb3.exe "-setup"

Double clicking the shortcut should bring up the setup first. After applying the settings, the game should start.

You should really include setup.bat in those downloads, they make things much easier.
Open notepad, type "start tomb3.exe -setup", save the file as .bat, put in game folder.
This works on every computer, no need to create the shortcut for setup every time.
Also works for other TRs, you just need to always type the exe name like the one used.

just delete config.txt and the setup will run
but to me it seems that you try to run the game directly from the zip folder
you need to extract the zip file
