Default Error Help Please

I am trying to load a ROM by simply double clicking it in a windows screen, but when I try it gives me an "attempt to open file fail" error. I have unzipped them and I have verified that the ROM's are good because they will run when I open them through Project 64. I have also made sure that the shell integration match the ROM's and all the ROM's are correctly associated. Does anyone have any suggestions as to why it crashes when I try to open the ROM's directly?
Thanks.

Well I am building a front end loader for all of my ROM's so I can't use the Project 64 loader.

Simply put Squall, spends most of the game raining on everyone's parade. I, for one, found this to be quite amusing. The amusing aspects of his depressive nature appears early in the game when he is talking with his mentor/party member, Quistis. After her emotional plea that he "doesn't have to talk, just listen," Squall replies with the jaw-droppingly cold mega-burn, "Then talk to a wall" *leaves*. Squall, they just don't get any funnier than that.

Ok that makes more sense why didnt you say so? I dont know how i can help with support on something outside pj64 tho... Maybe rswedlow can. He should be here in a little while.
Squall may be able to help too but he's on less frequently than rswedlow

What's the point of a front end loader?

As for me, I know exactly what you mean. That makes you a pimp. Needless to say, it's been a while since I've messed around with this type of monstrosity. I do recall this issue though (before). I also recall giving up on that $#@!y "Shindows" operating system...

hmm... that makes sense. So I take it that your frontend works for PJ64 v1.7 bu not 1.6?

1 of 2 aint bad, lets celebrate:

Ever thought of F5 to refresh the browser?
If the ROM was unzipped its location changes, and Project64 doesn't update its directory targets of ROMs automatically.
