am trying to download the Windows 7 compatability check. Downloded from Microsoft. and it placed win32 cabinet self extractor in downloads file. I click on it and am asked which program to open it with. Any help?
If it's a ZIP file it should open given a healthy XP system, if it's an EXE you have a system problem, virus and/or rootkit, RAR purchase or DL the demo version to open it. Several zip freeware/shareware out there are winzip and jzip. I suggest you not install Windows 7 on a 32bit machine as it's a bigger bottleneck than XP but that' on you.
