  • Windows™ operating systems XP or earlier, you will need the PKUNZIP.EXE or Pkzipw.exe program. (If you need the PKUNZIP program, visit the PKWare Web site.)
  • You have set your Web browser to recognize the "zip" extension.

  2. Unzip the file. To conserve disk space, you may wish to erase the file after it has been decompressed.

  3. Run the setup program that accompanies the simulator. If you are using Windows 95, click on "Start" in the lower left corner of the screen, click on "Run", and with the "Browse" option, locate "Setup.exe" in the appropriate subdirectory.
