I want to download and install the latest MAME emulator on my computer, which currently has (64 bit) Windows 7. I have visited the MAME website and it gives you several download options, but I don't know which one to use. I need step-by-step directions on how to download and install MAME where it will run with no issues. I have MAMEIU32 on my laptop, which I downloaded a few years ago, but I also want to install it on my main (desktop) computer as well. Thanks for any help with this.

Some easy installers have games that some others forgot to add the Rise of the Robots proto is an example that you may not see in some version gamelists so it may be wise to try out a few versions to see what the best for your useage is if you wanna play unreleased arcade games like that.
First, we need 7-zip; this will allow us to extract our MAME Emulator. Now that we have 7-zip up and running, download MAMEUI (32bit) 0.143, make sure to download the correct version for your OS version. For Windows 7, Click the Windows key on your keyboard, and in the lower right hand corner, click Control Panel, go to the upper right hand corner of the Control Panel window and click the View By tab, select Large Icons, scroll to the bottom of the window and right above user accounts should be System, click on it.
