Robert, they do have the rar extension, but what is winrar and how do you unpack them??? I have windows XP if that helps any.  Tony


Winrar is like WinZip in that it is an application which decompresses compressed files.

You can down load a copy here

hi all,  I am having trouble with the chess computer digest downloads on the exactachess web site. I can download the file and save it, but I can not open it to print it. I have tried Adobe 9, but no luck. anyone know what software will open these files? thanks as always, Tony

If they have the extension .rar (like the one i downloaded), they have to be unpacked with WinRar. I could open the unpacked file without problems with Adobe Reader.
