    A RAR file is a compressed archive like a ZIP file. You'll need to uncompress it first, and then likely there'll be a readme with information on how to install it.

    Do I need a specific program to uncompress it?
    If so, can you please provide the download site.

    Winrar is the way to go.

    You'll want to extract the .mod file to MyDocuments/NWN2/modules (or something similar - the folder should already be there).

    Thanks. This help a lot.

    Edit: Haveing said that, the FarManager dosent seem to want to extract the files. It says they are missing. Should I consider re-downloading the file?
