later locate the file and run it. It is
best to use an empty
folder on your system.
After Downloading, begin self-extraction:
Option 1: Run the EXE file you downloaded by double-clicking on the file
name using Windows Explorer.
Option 2: Run the EXE file you downloaded by selecting the
Windows Start button - Run item.
Once the self-extraction program has started, depending on the type
of file, you will be:
Asked for the name of the folder on your hard drive where you would
like to place the un-compressed file. Type the name of the folder in the
dialog box. The self-extraction program will then un-compress the file
and place it into the folder you specified.
An Application Setup Program will begin running to allow you to
install a complete application on your hard drive. Follow the Setup
How to use Zipped files
Files with the ZIP extension have been compressed to a small file size
using the PKZIP utility. Once you download a zipped file, you must use a
third-party utility program that will un-zip the file. You should see the

There are many utility programs available that will un-zip files. You can
find a listing of possibilities at
