Downlaoded Files

By jrbigsky ·
I downloaded a file from the internet it is a update and revisin to a game program I have.
It downloaded ok and was placed into my document folder under downloaded programs... When I go there I find it there ok..I click on it and get the Winzip window I click agree ...it opens up and i get a list of files of about 17 of them...when I go to open one up ( They all act the same way when I try to open them) I get a message that says ..< caution your system is not configued to view these files > then I go to the help tab and it tells me I need <Quick-View to view these files> and then instructs how to install it off my windows disk but I have windows XP and I don't see it there.. So how can I install this download to my system and add it to MOHAA
The files are opened on winzip and since I cant see the file itself I can't even see what the file extention is...any idea what is going on here?

Have you tried extracting the files to a separate folder before you try to open them? If you do this and you still can't get them to open you at least should be able to see the file extensions.

Many software files are not viewable by any file viewer.

It is very common for patch and update files to not be viewable.

You need to extract the files form the archive into a specific folder.
Then, if there is a readme or .txt file, read it for instructions.

There usually is a file named setup or install .exe.
You run this file to install the patch.
