Best answer

 Files with the extension ".zip" are compressed folders.  All files inside this folder must be extracted before running a “ .exe”  file.  Please reference the following errors:

“Windows cannot open this file:"   Either upgrade to Service Pack 2 or go to www.winzip.com & download their software (a free evaluation version is available).

"This application may depend on other compressed files in this folder."  Click "Extract all" & follow the Wizard through the extraction process.

"This file has a potentially unsafe file type of .EXE:"   Click "No".  Click "Wizard" in the WinZip application window & follow it through the extraction process.

*If you have any further questions regarding .zip files, please reference [ www.winzip.com ]'s "Basic Information" & "Power Tips"
