    If it's an executable file you should be able to just double click it to install.

    If it's a zip file, you will need to use winzip to extract it to a folder, it should have a setup.exe to run

    Hi brian,

    It's an executable.
    I did give it a double click to install.
    it went thru what seemed to be the right moves.
    I had to agree to everything and anything.
    After it had done its business,
    I went back to the document that i wanted to look at,
    and tried to look at it.

    I expected it to be visible, but it asked me which prog
    to use for it.
    And it showed me the list of progs to choose from.

    I thought maybe first time you have to tell it,
    then afterwards it will go to it.

    But its not there for me to choose.
    So how do i choose it?

    I am not sure which you downloaded.

    Try opening the program you just installed, the go to file open and browse to the file.

    I found an entry called:
    DjVuWebBrowserPlugin_EN.exe
    its 1.8 MB what is it likely to do?

    Is it likely that it will remove my Explorer?
    and put something else there?
    I thought it was just a doc reader,
    Its file version 3.5.0.14
    from LizardTech

    I dont know what 'file open' is but
    i can go to the exe and give it a double click.
    Sorry to take so long, my brain seems to have
    congealed i think the monitor is sucking it out
    thru my eyes.

    open IE, then go to file open, browse to where the file is and try and open it in IE, apparently you downloaded a browser plugin to be used in the IE browser only

    OK
    i opened IE
    I found 'file ... open'
    typed in the name of the file
    1920-38INDEX.djvu

    and i got a message:
    Internet Explorer cannot open the Internet
    site http://1920-38index.djvu/.
    The site was not found. Make sure the address is
    correct, and try again.

    Its not a site.
    Its a file.
    What am i doing wrong?

    i just noticed you said browse to it,
    shall i try again using browse?

    I went back to it, to try to browse to it instead,
    I used the browse and it wants the whole address not
    just the file name apparently.
    So thats what it got.
    I thought it was going to open,
    instead it asked me which prog to use,
    and showed me a list. Which didnt include DjVu.
    So i chose Internet Explorer.
    Still no go.

    How am i supposed to use this?

    im not doing it right am i?
