    I don't know that program, but generally, you would need to unzip the files. This can be done with any unzipper but a common one is WinZip. An old one was called PKUNZIP.

    You find these at www.google.com.

    A freeware one is Easyzip

    Seems to work OK.

    Freeware means you can use it for free. Winzip costs money.

    After you unzip all the files to the same directory, you look for an .EXE file called "setup", or something similar, and run it.

    Even better Windows (at least XP) allows you to open up Zip files like directories and uncompress them as well. For compressing things, I've found that the open source and free 7-Zip is pretty good (a warning if you encrypt your zip files however: AES isn't supported by many decompression programs, nor by Windows)
