You need to unzip the mlb-1.1.zip file (which you downloaded from the  
"MLB for Windows" link) into your home directory. If your account  
name is "channa", then your home directory will be:
     C:\Documents and Settings\channa

After unzipping, you should end up with an "mlb" directory in your  
home directory. In turn, the "mlb" directory will contain some more  
directories and some files, including mlb.exe, which you could test  
as a standalone application first. If that works OK, then it will  
work when you invoke it from the MLB Controller's Start button.
