What's the file, does your system support it?

Keep track of where it's unzipped to. The zipped file may have its own directory structure and it will be extracted into those folders. But if you specify it to be unzipped into a folder named UNZIP for example the precomposed directories and the files they contain will be there. If you don't specify a folder to extract to it will extract to the root directory--probably c:\ --and you may not recognize that the new folder is there.

Another possibility is if it's a self extracting zip file (in .exe form) it will sometimes extract (usually to a temp folder), run the extracted files and then delete them all without your intervention. Sometimes driver installations do that. It all depends on how the zipped file was put together and what it's meant to do.

Don't forget to preorder your Hatch green chili for this fall. Many vendors ship world-wide.

If its a legitimate download, are you sure you have the right exe file for 64 vs 32.
