Question about when I DL .CAB files.

Firstly, I apologize if this is the wrong place to ask this.
I'm not very tech-savvy, so I'm sorry if this is obvious to you.

I'm not sure why, but as of the last 2 days, I've had a problem
that's been driving me insane.

Every single .CAB file I download, becomes a .RAR file, & I extract
it to my desktop, to transfer it over to my phone, but every single
.CAB file I download, these are the only files I get.
And what would I do with these? Or can anyone tell me, why it's happening?

(I'm not sure if the picture came out large enough, but the 3 files that
come in it, are: _setup [XML document], NAVTET~1.000 [000 file?], 0CAB11E9 [001 file?] <-- Although, it has Quicktime symbol.)


TIA.

-Josh

Check your WinRar program, it has a setting in it that could be checked and it is associating all files whether cab, zip to a RAR file. When you open RAR go to "Options" in the toolbar then click "settings" then click on the "Integration Tab" and see what is checked. If CAB and ZIP are checked, uncheck their box and this should solve it.

Tried it, it made it so that when I DL'd the .CAB file (tried downloading a radio_utilities one), it brought it as a zipped folder on my desktop. I chose "extract all" -> Desktop, & that's when it brought a blue "cabinet file" icon
to my desktop, with the same kind of 3 files that I described in my original
post.

Weird stuff.

You have to put the rar file on your phone. I made it simple for myself by putting a folder on my phone called programs. Just put the rar file in your internal storage and run it from your phone. The rar file is the .cab.

Re: Question about when I DL .CAB files.

WinRar reads .cab files as archives that it can extract from, but the file still retains the .cab extension. If you don't edit the file and just transfer it to your phone, you can run it as a .cab and it'll install like a normal program. Winrar is just associating the .cab file with its program, which is why it allows you to open it. Extracting it wont' do any good.
