Please help a slow person run this game

I realize that I'm slow with things like this and that it may sound incredibly silly to many of you. But I can't seen to make this game run nor how to use Daemon tolls correctly. I didn't find any ISO image in the zip file from here either. I've read many of the ideas posted here and in the review but they don't seen to work also.
So, please, can some kind soul tell me step by step how can I make this run? I'm getting frustrated.... Thank you so much

You have configured WinRar as the default program associated with ISO images, that's all there is to your problem.

oh, man, do I have to write the name of ALL files? If the guy has it, would that be so necessary? <_<

thank you for trying to help but, honestly, I didn't understand a word of what you said...
I said in the thread posting that I don't understand so much about these things. (things = ISO images and their friends)

ok, first of all, like horseman said, check the extension, whether its ISO or RAR (explorer-> tools->options->view->hide extensions for known file types, uncheck, save)
if it says .rar in the file, and there are files in it, well just unpack it and run the exe? (if its there of course, since we have no clue whats in the archive.)
if its not ISO and if there s no exe, then write us at least some files in the rar. and directories
if it says iso..mount it with an image program

WinRar can open ISO images like if they were archives.
If you didn't change the defaults, it makes itself the default program to open ISO images with when you install it.
