    Hello, I'm having problems unzipping a executable file in winrar to windows 7, the other files in the volume extract except the ".exe" file.

    thanks

    I'm not quite sure where you are going here, but an exe file would not normally need to be unzipped. If it is showing inside a comprehensive zipped file, as part of such, unzipping the larger file will automatically extract the .exe into the chosen folder, in its original state.

    Are you saying that, after performing this, the .exe will not run?
