I am trying to re-install a program that was previously on my computer. Pokerstars. when I download to my desktop, the icon is not what it is supposed to look like. this is a fairly safe download and im pretty sure there is no malicious content inside.
I have searched google and this message board and have not found any sort of language that a novice like myself can understand.

CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHY THIS IS HAPPENING?


When I attempt to insall, I get the following message:

FATAL ERROR: unexpected command line paramteters:
and;

Usage Pokerstarsinstall.exe [A/] [/d:"Dir" ][/n:"name"][/r: /t:"program"]
/a: automatic mode
/d:"Dir" override installation directory
/n:"name" override product name
/u:"name" uninstall by product name
/t:"program" run program after successful installation


THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP

Hi ldbonner!

Looks like you need to install the program with parameters like the error message is saying. Put the Pokerstarsinstall.exe file in your base C:\ directory. Then go to START--RUN and type in C:\Pokerstarsinstall.exe /a to do an automatic install. Let me know if that works.
