What’s a CAB file?

I downloaded and unzipped the program, but I don’t see anything called a CAB file. What did I do wrong?

Did you download Weather Watcher Mobile from the following page?

If so, the downloaded file should have a CAB extension. The file might kind of seem like a zip file because you can open it and view the contents.

That’s where the confusion was. My WinZip program opened it automatically. When I went back into my downloads folder and saw the unopened CAB, I was able to follow the directions from that point.

It is up and running and looks very nice. Thank you!
