    Change the path in the Unzip To Folder box and unzip the files where you wish to save them.

    The file is an automatic self extracting file. It is just a normal zip file, but with a self extraction tool built in. So when you double click it, it starts the unzipping routine, and asks you where you want it unzipped to. Sometimes, after extraction, it will run a program automatically. Whether it does so depends if the person specified that option when making the zip file.

    You can choose to unzip the file wherever you wish, preferably to a location you'll be able to find easily, for example: C:\, or wherever you usually save your downloaded files.

    Then, run the Setup file included in that new folder.

    In this file are maybe 20.exe files and ~4 setup.exe files, so i better would like to run as one application automatic so the driver would work correctly.
