why when i tried to install simple machines forum I get this error?

The installer could not find any install script files for the detected databases. Please check you have uploaded the necessary install script files to your forum directory, for example "install_2-1_mysql.sql"

Where do you want to install your forum? In the root domain, some folder or subdomain? And how are you trying to install it? Please see the following link and make sure that you follow all the steps mentioned there:

Redownload the install files and upload them again.  This should resolve it.
