Windows 7: Download issues Windows 7 College course program

Download issues Windows 7 College course program

Trying to download a GIS mapping program from Purdue Univ. Seems to download to my "Dwonloads" file. When I look at the Download folder it shows an icon with correct title, but I can't see any files when I double click on it. This is not a "file folder" icon. I get an "Open file Security Warning" pop up. Shows run or cancel. Hit run it brings up "Win Zip Self Extractor" pop up. I have already supposedly unzipped this into the downloads. Have been through the issues of downloading Google Earth and think I have worked this out. Any help on this program appreciated. School will start soon!

Sounds like it's a .zip file that is not unzipped to me.

Right click on it and click on Extract All. That will unzip it to a folder with the same name as the zip file. Open the folder and everything should be there.

Go ahead and double click on it and let Win Zip Self Extractor run. That should give you the uncompressed files/folders.
