Gnuwin32: Unrar extracts files from rar archives .
All packages require MS Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista / 2008 / 7 with msvcrt.dll. If msvcrt.dll is not in your system folder (Windows\System or Windows\System), get it from Microsoft or by installing Internet Explorer 4.0 or higher. Some packages also require msvcp60.dll, which is in the same Microsoft sources. Packages from 2009 and earlier usually run also on 9x (MS Windows 95 / 98 / ME) and NT systems. Newer packages may also run on 9x and NT, but no new code to make them run on these systems, will be added. So, if a package does not run on 9x or NT, use an older release.
Some packages require other packages as well (and these may require still other packages!). Usually they require only the dynamic link library (DLL), contained in --bin.zip. All required packages from GnuWin, i.e. excluding msvcrt.dll, perl, etc, are included in the Setup programs and the dependencies zip files.
Be careful not to use another version of a library that depends on crtdll.dll; any call to an executable with an implicit dependence on both msvcrt.dll and crtdll.dll, crashes. Nor should you mix CygWin dlls and native dlls.
