Question Can't Play VBA - Unsupported File?

I was told about VBA by one of my friends last night at his birthday party.. I saw him playing on his laptop and thought it looked pretty neat.. So I decided I would give it a shot. I'm decent when it comes to understanding computers.. but for the life of me, even looking up tutorials on VBA makes me VERY.. confused.
SO... Maybe I'm just doing this wrong, or maybe it was the sugar crash at 12:27am trying to figure this blasted thing out, but I can't seem to get it to work for me.
The problem isn't in downloading VBA.. for the most part I think I've done that correctly. Its on my desktop, I can open it.. go into it, and everything. The problem is -- I can't seem to get the games I want to play.

For example: I downloaded Dude, Where's My Char?

--A game my friend had on his computer--As a test to see how everything worked. I downloaded it, placed the zipped file on my desktop.. then did as one of the tut's told me--drag and drop on top of the VBA screen.. now it should play.. yes? However it says things like "No Images" Or "Unsupported File" And after downloading a few other games.. even unzipping the folders and trying that way... still nothing.

Is it simply not working because I'm making a simple mistake? Or did I screw up big time somewhere and need some special help?
