Self-Extracting file won't extract

December 9, 2010 at 18:46:28
Specs: Windows Vista
I downloaded Weblogic and the file says it's a GUI Self Extractor. When I click on the file to extract it, it brings up the Select a program dialog. How do I get a self-extracting file that won't extract to extract? The file is almost a Gig in size - don't really want to re-download it as it was a pain to do the first time (Oracle keeps forgetting my account - it worked 1 out of 20 times trying to log in and it isn't working again today). Putting this question under the OS as no other category seemed to fit even remotely...

try going to the command prompt. Start-Run-cmd

"dir" your way to the directory where the file is located use the "rename" command to rename the file as "any name".exe
