Hello, 


You have to extract the files first. Right-click the files and select extract to...
It's probably best to create a new folder on the desktop (or anywhere, really)  to extract them to.

Alternatively, open the .RAR with WinRAR and mark all contents inside the .RAR with the mouse. Then you can just drag and drop the marked contents out, for example into an empty folder. The setup must be started after you extracted the .RAR contents, and from within the folder where you extracted to. Smile
