Are you still on XP or did you get dragged into the 2010s and move up to Win10?

Did you try the trick of extracting the files with 7zip? Also, which version of YS are you trying to install? Anything since 2015 will only work on Win 7 and up.

You nailed it Pat 2015, and there are no files in the zip file to extract only the readme files with the installer.exe. So I guess I can no longer download new versions with Windows XP?

The installer itself should open with 7zip if you right click it. 2015 will work with Windows XP, although a lot of people still prefer the 2011 version these days.

That's how I did it, but the results are what you see on the screen.

My general rant: I will call them blended winglets, not Sharklets; There is no CEO, it's just simply put, an Airbus 319/320/321, or the 320NEO, 321NEO etc. I didn't land IN DAL, I landed AT DAL. On the other hand, I did land in Dallas.
