    Download it to a windows box. Execute the .exe to get all the files extracted to one folder. Then copy to Unix

    You can use "unrar" for Unix to extract them all. No need to use Windows.

    Since "Unix" can be AIX, Solaris or HP-UX and you didn´t specify what you use I can´t provide you a link where to download unrar. Use google.

    • Thanks ..fine I can unrar the files..but what about that exe...should I run that exe folder..or unraring any file can do the whole work..plz guide me...just FYI..I am using HP-UX Itanium 64 box

      I´d try an

      unrar x -ep3 <filename>

      no matter if it´s an exe or not.

      If you have all the files to be extracted in one directory you can try the script (ksh/sh/bash):

      for i in `ls`; do unrar x -ep3 $i; done
