Fenrir-1-05.2 RAR file question

After looking at many DVB forums yours is the finest ( so I joined). I am an ultra newbee just setting up my software and I hope my question is not to lame.I run XP and I successfully loaded ProgDVB 4.38.6 and then successfully loaded Yankse-1-22.2-TT as a plug in into the ProgDVB directory.
I then went back to the "yankse.dvbnetwork.com" website ( where I got the Yankse files) and downloaded "Fenrir-1-05.1", after viewing the readme file it said to find and install a file called DECaid1800 ( not included in the file). I did a Google search and came up with " dvbsoft.net" and proceeded to download "Fenrir-1-05.2 w/DECaid1800"
My question is when "Fenrir-1-05.2 w/DECaid1800" was downloaded to my desktop it was not compressed and was a RAR file that I was unable to expand or view any read me files. Do I simply move this file into the "ProgDVB" file to initiate the "Fenrir" plug in?
I did an archive search to find out about RAR files so I would not waste any of your time but came up with no hits.
BTW I may be premature in all this, I have ordered my Nexus-S and won't recive it for about a week, so I have been physically installing the dish and getting aquinted with the software since I understand it's the tricky part.
Thanks in advance for any help

Hello Andre

I think you are asking about files with the extension .rar

These are simillar to .zip files in that they contain data which has been compressed.

You can download a programme which will 'expand' .rar files here:

This should enable you to access the file you are looking for.

Hope this makes sense, but if not come back again and ask.

Kind regards

Thank you very much w hole,
I guess Windows XP did not recognise the .rar and I was not any smarter. I used the program your link lead me to, to decompressed all the files into a sub folder I created in the " ProgDVB" folder. I guess that was correct. Do you know the purpose of the DECaid1800 file?

Does anyone know of a free programme to unzip these .RAR files as the link above only has trial versions?
