Exmerge utility - installation problems

donpick asked
Last Modified: 2010-03-06
Running Exchange 2003 service pack 2 fully patched on a Windows 2003 standard server.
I want to archive one mailbox.  I downloaded Exmerge version 06.05.7529
I put it in C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin
Each time I run Exmerge.exe it asks where to extract files.  I told it to extract files to C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin.  
When I run Exmerge.exe again it asks where to extract files.
So what am I doing wrong?  
How do I actually run the Exmerge utility?
500 points because this is an urgent issue.

It would be nice if Microsoft labeled the program
Exmerge installation.exe
and explained the program will create a folder called Exmerge.
You cannot read the documentation until files are extracted.
This is VERY DUMB for a 59 billion dollar company.
