First you need to unzip ALL THE CONTENTS of the pack you download (right click->extract...), then run the installer.

You need to install directx 9.c too. Newer versions of directx are not compatible with this old game, but fear not, you can have both directx's work on the same PC.

PostSubject: Can't extract files or update game.   Fri May 27, 2016 10:02 pm

I can't extract the files in TPC_b2.cab and TPC_b3.cab it says "The following file could not be opened or is not a valid Zip file D:\Games\The Protectors\TPC_b2.cab, similarly for TPC_b3.cab.
When I try to update to 0.8.6a hotfix it says
"The program can't start because binkw32.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem."
Similarly it says that too for 'wetstd32.dll' and 'mss32.dll'.
I have not modified any files, I have tried installing the game 2nd time but it isn't fixed; the problem persists. I use WinZip. The extracted files are in a separate folder.

Edit: I extract the files in TPC_2.cab and 3 but I could install game, is it necessary to extract those?

Ok first things first:

You need all cab files in the same folder with the installation .exe file. If you do everything correctly, then the installer won't even ask for the files and will go from 0% to 100% with no interruptions.

Secondly, 0.8.6a is a HOTFIX PATCH. You just need to copy-paste that exe over the 0.8.6 one. IT IS NOT A INSTALLER.

That should do it!
