Cant figure out visual pinmame


Pinball Nudger
I run a computer shop but I am not a computer (nerd) I cant figure out the Visual Pin Mame at all and I have read almost every post I can find, can anyone help me. I have any style computer running any windows. I just need help setting up the software and getting it to run.
Thanks Jamie

This is a re-post of mine...
I still have trouble with some machines refusing to start...
Older recreations that don't use ROM's usually work for me...
Sometimes I have to re-load a game several times to get it to start the first time...
Some errors involve a message about missing roms....
Then there seems to be a permission issue with some games...
Important Keys:
5>adds money
1>starts game
a>puts ball in shooting position

I'm new to the virtual pinball thing too. I have had some success and some failures. I used the VIP installer from PN home page. http://www.pinballnirvana.com/UpDownload-index-req-viewdownloaddetails-lid-1672-ttitle-Visual_Install_Pack.htmlI Down load the table files then un-zip them. Then run the extracted table file. The ROM file is not un-ziped. The un-zipped Rom folder gets pasted into the 'ROM' folder in Program Files/Pinball/ROM's. That's is about all I know. I got some help here from PN forums. Here is a link to that discussion. GSGreg includes a 'shortcut' to some ROM"S stored @ PN. http://www.pinballnirvana.com/forums/showthread.php?p=98355#post98355">
