Hmm, I would have thought Windows knew about .EXE files.

The usual method to setup Winorbit is to unzip the archive into a directory of
its own (c:\winorb is a good choice :) ), making sure you include directory
names.  You will need to create an icon in Program Manager for convenience,
though it should run from File Manager, if you double click on it.

To create the icon, use file -> new -> Program Item, then enter the details as
appropriate.  And finally, select the group you want it to appear in (I like to
have a ham specific group).

Been ages since I've seriously fiddled with Win 3.1, I'm running NT4 here.

WinOrbit will be worth the effort, it's a very good program (I use it quite
heavily here to keep track of the birds).
