Basic install question

Why do some programs that do not require the ./configure procedure when installing say: bash: run: command not found

For example, I downloaded a program called ProQuake ( because I'm trying to run a dedicated netquake server. All the zip file contained was 4 files which included:

I extracted all the files into a directory /usr/local/games/quake/ and on the command line I tried simply:
"sqpro -dedicated" and I got that error "bash: run: command not found"

So what am I missing? Obviously the executable is there in that directory, why is it not running?

Thanks in advance.

Did you try "./sqpro -dedicated" (with "./" if you are in the same directory)?
