I have a .exe file that I double click on.  I get the following message:

Winzip Self-Extractor
Could not create "C:\Docume~1\Admini~1\Locals~1\Temp\WZSE20.TMP\uad1\redist\uaclrinf" - unzip operation cancelled.
Please help.  Hundreds and hundreds of dollars are at stake!


Oh....Very important: I'm using Windows Server 2003

sounds like you dont have permissions over the of that folder to extract or that you have some sort of AV or enhanced security stopping that file from being created. Have you tried opening it in winzip or winrar and extracting the files manually?

I do not  have winzip or winrar.  In the past, files identical to this opened easily!   What gives?  Virus?

you can download it here - www.rarsoft.com. It's free for the first 30 days.
As for virus, not necessarily - what does your AV think. Do you have enough disk space?

What is AV?  I have more disc space than you can imagine!   :)  
Just to clarify, I am a musician.  I got a server so that I would have unlimited capacity for RAM without having to use Vista, which is terrible for music applications.

OK.... just downloaded Winrar.  Now... how do I actually use it?  When I click on that .exe file, I still get the same message.   Do I right click on the file, or something?
