win98se updated and everthing
yes good source (work partner)
no ftp from network
On futher research I see that has to be compiled or interpeted/assembled to create .exe...maybe open in vb to check script or better yet ms visual studio would be nice ..maybe I can get demo..I have wise installmaster but I don't think it will work..maybe that comes after compile..
read me text says unpack and install...used winrar to unpack even tried self exe .. I think some thing went wrong in ftp didn't convert back or something..sdled

You may not have all of the file.
The FTP may have gone wrong or maybe the files are just misnamed.
Have you examined them with a binary editor to see what they contain?
What are the first 4 bytes in each file?
