Exclamation How do I open an iso in project64?

The legend of zelda - windwaker rom comes in a 7z file, which i could extract an iso file from. I would have no idea from there how to open either of those files in project 64. I am new.

Any advice?

Playing all my favorite Nintendo64 games like Zelda Twilight Princess,Super Mario Sunshine,Metroid Prime...

Yeah,Dolphin is for Zelda Windwaker,a Gamecube game,PJ64 is for N64 games.
As for 7z files you need the "7-zip" program which is a million times better than WinRar.

I could never get dolphin to open in the first place.. I suppose that's another problem I need to go back to trying to fix before I can play this .iso after 2 weeks.

So step 1 is figure out how to open dolphin.

Do I have to do anything with the .iso file or will that just play in the dolphin emulator?

Dolphin needs to be ported to a N64 executable before it will load in Project64 and let you load ISOs in it.

Short answer is: you are in the wrong place...

Allow me to elaborate, you are trying to play an ISO from ANOTHER console in a N64 emulator, that will not work...

So you better ask this on the Dolphin's forums or read their beginner's tutorial there, as for Dolphin not even starting that could be many things like running the executable on a win32 environment or lacking the needed Visual Studio re-distributables (last version needs visual studio 2013 redistributables)...

That's all the help I could give to you before making fun of you...
