To run the game on a windows system, proceed like this.
1 - Unzip the file and place the folder anywhere you want.
Inside that fodler there 3 other folders (CD1, CD2, CD3).
Into each of those folders we'll use the .bin files (don't double click on them, it's unnecessary).
Those, contains the files for your games and now you need a program that can get into them/run them.
2 - Install a program that can run a .bin file.
Some people use power ISO, i personnaly prefer, Virtual Clone Drive wich i think is easier to get into.
So, I'm gonna go with Virtual Clone Drive here.
3 - After installing Virtual Clone Drive, open it (you'll find the icon on your desktop or in your windows menu, it's a sheep).
As you see the little window, set the number of drives to 1, if it's already set, just make sure that the last 3 options are checked.
And go where you can see your computer's hard drives, usb card etc...
You'll notice the presence of a drive you never seen before, it's the virtual drive we are going to use to install the game.
4 - Right click on that drive and click where it's written "virual clone drive" and choose "mount" ("mount an image" depends of the version).
Now, go look for those unzipped folders from the first step, go to CD1, make sure to display all the files as Virtual Clone Drive won't see those, and then open the .bin file (the heaviest file).
5 - Now that our image is mounted, right click on the drive and select open to check what's inside.
You'll see several files, open file named "setup".
It is the installation file, chose where to install your game etc...
During the installation, the process will stop and ask for a file (something like data 2), or the CD2.
That is to say something is missing.
DON'T PANIC !!! XD
Don't close anything but the window with content of the CD1.
Then, right click on the drive, and proceed like the last file; "virtual clone drive", "mount", go to CD2 folder, display everything, open the .bin file and wait for 5 seconds.
Go back to the installer and press ok.
The installation will resume.
We'll repeat the exact same steps for the CD3.
6 - Installation finished, we survived XD !
Just don't forget to dismount the image from the virtual drive.
For that, right click on it, go to "virtual clone drive" and select "dismount".
Now we can delete the folder containing the images or you can keep them in an external hard drive; do whatever you want with those files, we don't we don't them anymore !
7 - Go to the folder where you installed the game, and open it ("Rally_3PC.exe").
If you click on the icon instead don't worry, i've been there !!!
Or simply click on the desktop icon if you have one or find it on your windows menu.
Last step, PRAY XD.
If the game doesn't start, i don't have more knowledge to help unfortunately :-(
If the game opened Everything is fine.
Have Fun !!!!

hello. Tried to download this game 3 times and 3 times the download stops half way through. verry frustrating downloading 2 gig game at 150 kbps. love the site but download speeds reminds me of the old 56k modems, i would not recommend this site to anyone simply because of the slow downloads or the stop download half way through the file.

POE is gatekeeping and not so humbly bragging about owning an old machine which I am happy he does own one, we do need to keep old tech alive but there's no need to insult anyone because they can't afford to or don't want to. Money is tight for mostly everyone at the moment. BW's guide worked for me, follow their advice. Downvote me because I'm not actually contributing to helpful discussion. I just wanted to challenge a gatekeepers comment because it doesnt give the community here a good look, especially to newcomers which is personally unacceptable to me because this sites users have helped me out thanklessly so many times and I don't like seeing a few bad apples try to ruin it. Games should be for everyone and should be played on whatever is easiest or preferential to you. If someone doesn't like that then that's their problem not yours.

Never use virtual machines to play games, just build a socket 939 machine and put windows98 on it job done, virtual machines cant possibly play all the games properly even if you do manage to get them working they will be a hell of a lot slower, stop being tight asses and buy the proper hardware thats period correct

create a virtual machine with virtual box and install win 7 x86 or win xp sp2-3 x86 and with daemon tools or virtual box mount the iso of the game with 2gb of ram o 4gb you are ready to play any classic that depends of how much ram you have on your system and the size of the ssd or hard drive the amount of hdd its 30gb

does anyone know how to make this game run on windows 10? when i start the game, my screen goes black for five seconds and then goes back to normal. i have set the game in compatibility mode, administrator mode and have tried to search online for a fix and i have found nothing.

Hello EBG7, try downloading "DAEMON TOOLS" in order to properly mount the iso. Hope this helps!
