Hello Sadik,

I don't understand what you mean by "unpack with one of the boxes on top-
with the blue lining"?!?!?

I'm attaching a screen shot of the ARK program showing the contents of the
archive file. Where do I extract the files to??? E.g. what folder do I
select as the target folder to uncompress these files to???

Best Regards,
PEW
