DAT61MK2 Extract All

This program will be saved as a folder named Setup61, containing zip files. Right click the Setup61 Folder and select Extract All. After clicking Extract, you will need a password provided by either Geonics or a rental company. At times, one may find that there are other issues with unzipping the files. If this is the case, the user may receive a copy via email that has been extracted. However, to avoid antivirus and other software blocks the file(s) will likely have the extension (name.xxx) part of the program changed from “name.exe” to “name.txt”. The “.txt” allows the file(s) to be download via email. After the user receives the program file with the “.txt” extension the file will need to be renamed to “.exe” before it will run in Windows.
