Why 3.9? 4 is free and a lot more advanced.

To set it up, you should just need to double click the downloaded item and follow the instructions on screen.

Maybe Awol569 wants to play a game written in 3.9.

I did but it still doesn't seem to work. It says there are setup instructions but my computer can't interperet the files. Also say i downloaded another version would a version made with 3.9 work the same?

I think you just need to make sure you initially run it as Administrator, so you have the permissions to update the registry.
