Windows HELP

hello I have a problem. I have the CREATOR version of game maker studio 2. I made a game and I want to send it, so I created a .zip executable. but it only lets me open the game file in a WinRar and I can't extract the game file itself because if I extract it from WinRar I can´t play it. only a black screen appears after the Game Maker Studio 2 creator screen. That on that has a light bulb. does anyone know a way to save the game in an easy-to-download file, or to run the game outside of WinRar?


The game cannot run if it can’t locate the “data.win” file. If you run without extracting, it won’t be able to find it. You have to extract both the game .exe and data.win to the same directory. Hope this helps
