Rar Files

The Research files for Windows are packaged in a self-extracting archive, to save on space and download time.  Self-extracting archives have an extension of .EXE, and can be run as commands or double-clicked on just like any other application. When a self-extracting archive is run, the files in the archive are automatically extracted into the directory of your choice.  You do not need an extraction program (like WinRar) to extract files from these self-extracting archives.
