Zoo Tycoon 2 features similar gameplay as its predecessor, Zoo Tycoon. The object of the game is to build and operate a zoo by creating exhibits and aquariums, keeping guests and animals happy, and maintaining employees, finances, terrain, and scenery.

How to make it work + Fullscreen instructions
Follow Tiny Thunder instructions + every time you need to launch the game will you have to use WinCDEmu Portable (best option - no installation, it's free and have NO ADs at all ), to mount DISK 1 and be able to run the game NOTE: even if you bought the game from microsoft you STILL would have to insert disk 1 to run the game)
Also, the game resolution is a mess. fullscreen isn't working at all.
Fortunately You can google "Zoo Tycoon 2 !TRUE WIDESCREEN!" - (thezt2roundtable site)
scroll down the page and find the DOWNLOAD link - fix by HENDRIX user.
Download both zwidescreen.z2f and > ZT2_UC_WIDESCREEN.RAR and extract them in the main folder where you've installed the game. zt.exe will be replaced by a new version.
After that the game will be going on fullscreen without any issue.

Possible Install Setup
I just finished downloading this onto Windows 11. Hopefully this works for others:
Download the 3 ZIP files for Zoo Tycoon 2, which are Disc 1, Disc 2, and Disc 3
Download and install WinCDEmu. Follow setup procedures
Click on the BIN file in Disc 1, it should start up using WinCDEmu
After the Disc 1 download, the ZT2 setup menu will ask you to “Insert Disc 2.” Do that by clicking on the BIN file of Disc 2 which should be opened by WinCDEmu, and click the “OK” on the ZT2 setup menu
After it finishes Disc 2, do the same thing again for Disc 3 as you did for the previous discs. The setup menu will ask a couple of questions that you should be able to opt out of, and you’ll be able to start up the game

Am I just an amateur?
Yes, I think that the file types mean that they have to be burned onto a disc or hard drive, perhaps?
I too was hoping for a simple "click to download button" but it seems that is not the case, and that these files are only accessible to people who really know what they are doing or - if you were desperate enough to play (rather than buying an expensive copy online) - looking up articles and YouTube videos to show you how to download the files and get them working.
That sounds very tedious though, and it would be nice if some .exe or launch files were included (like what they have on Oldgames Download.com, with a single zip file that includes everything you need).
Anyways, as far as the game itself goes I know for a fact that Zoo Tycoon 2 is a *spectacular* game that had a lot of fans during the 2000s, but is now quite difficult to find at a reasonable price (if at all) and has been superseded by games like Planet Zoo - but it's really not the same, and a lot of us miss ZT2 and would be highly appreciative of an easy way to download it since it's no longer in production.
