The best advice I can offer for this filetype is to download and install a copy of Winzip available here. After downloading and following the instructions for type exe files, proceed with the instructions below:

  1. Locate the file in Explorer
  2. Dbl-click the icon to open it
  3. If install is an option in the Winzip window, click install
  4. If install is NOT an option choose extract
  5. Choose New folder, name it whatever you choose.
  6. Make sure "All Files" has a dot beside it
  7. Make sure there is a checkmark beside Use Folder Names
  8. Click Extract
  9. When the action is complete, use the instructions for type exe files to finish
  10. If this will not work there should be a file in the new folder entitled Readme or readfirst or something along these lines to give you more information on the proper way to install your program along with some idea of the necessary expertise required to do so.
