CREO Piping library for Fittings---unable to access using 3 link files

I am using Creo Parametric - Release 8.0 (connected) Release 8.0 and Datecode8.0.1.0

I found CS115015 outlining how to obtain a Piping Fitting library. There are 3 links shown with the instructions to download each link, add it to a single directory and then unzip the first file (.001).
After downloading all 3 files, adding them in a single folder there is NO option shown to EXTRACT or Unzip the first file. Windows 11 does NOT recognize the file as a zipped file.
I am obviously missing something??

Hi,

you can use 7-zip application to unzip downloaded archive.

Hello Martin,

Thanks for your input---it WORKED.  I had tried the Windows Extract tool and WinZip with no luck. 7-zip did the trick.

I cannot download the files from those links. Is there a different location that they can be downloaded from?

I was able to download 3 zip files, no problem.

Company firewall rules do not allow us to download zipped files. 😞

Guess I'll have to do it home, burn a CD and bring them in tomorrow.

Yes, that is the way you can use.

The CS article says to put all three files in the same folder, but only unzip the .001 file. 

What do the other 2 zip files do?

I opened them and they look like a repeat of some of the files in the .001 zip.

Hi,

if you unzip downloaded archives and measure the Creo data size, you'll see the size 40 637 506 bytes.

When you rezip this Creo data, 7-zip allows you to split the zipped data into multiple zip files by setting the maximum size of a single zip file. This enable you to send smaller files via email, when size limit of attachment is applied.
