Exmerge utility - installation problems

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.

Sounds like you are running the downloaded executable, not the file from within the download. Remove the exe that you running and put it somewhere else. Then run it again. When it asks you where you want to put the files, state the directly that you have indicated. if you look in there you should find some new files - exmerge.exe (536k), exmerge.ini, the eula and a Word document.

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.
