Jar files are compressed files - a bit like .zip file WINRAR will unpack .jar files http://www.rarlab.com/

Hello elimliau,

If it is a standalone program use this command
java -jar foo.jar
Where foo.jar is your jar file. You would need Java for running this command - it can be downloaded for free from java.sun.com
