Title: 7zip
Post by: fr8nks on December 27, 2012, 01:15:48 am
I posted this here to make it easier to find.

Here is how to download:
1. you need 7zip installed on your computer. It's free and takes about 30 seconds to install. Get it here:
There are 9 choices for download--use the top one. Winzip won't work if you have it and this will do everything Winzip does but better.
2. Download both halves or thirds of the concert even if you only want the first work listed. Most files end in 001 and then 002 and maybe 003. You will get a funny looking icon when you download each file. It takes several minutes to download each half but you can minimize the download and continue to use your computer for other things.
3. After you have all of the files on your computer, right click on the first one downloaded and you will see a menu appear. Place your mouse over 7zip in this menu and a new menu opens. The 4th option listed reads "Extract here". Click  on this and BOTH halves of the file will open or all three files if that is the case.

Kind of you, Mr. Frank, but like the efforts of the other gentlemen, doomed to failure when faced with my incompetence !
My computer now says this 7zip is installed, but right clicking on the Rouse files, or any other for that matter, brings up no mention of it in a menu.
Thought about re-downloading the Rouse files, in case something I'd done had mucked them up, but the first link no longer works; something about 'broken or encrypted file'.
Think I'd better stop wasting good people's time, and hope the Requiem, which is all I really want, comes out on CD some time.

Many thanks and Happy Holidays to you

Someone else had the same problem as you. They solved it by going into "Programs" and opening 7zip from there. Find the folder where the music files are and right click on .001

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you also.

Thank you - doesn't work, of course;I've uninstalled 7zip, hjsplit & deleted the Rouse files.
We should leave it - so sorry to have bothered you all with my idiocy, gentlemen. Let's return to the music !
