    First download Win RAR form net and then uncompress that .rar file.
    You will get the setup file for installation

    LOL, RAR is compressed archive like zip. SFX is "Self Extracting archive". The Basic purpose of an SFX is to allow users to extract Archive contents without installing and downloading WINRAR or other extracters

    @sukhdeepsinghkohli

    yarr usko computer ka kuch nahin aata hai and u r telling him defination of SFX .




    @R.MOUSTACHE
    no buddy its like this

    .rar file

    U need WinRAR to extract and use this file

    SFX file (.exe)

    U don't need any s/w to extract these files

    those windows anr preinstalls are setup files .
    They also have extnsion .exe

    but SFX is different from setup files

    u will understand these concept as u learn more

    Details of these stuffs are out of scope for u(now)

    soon u will understand

    its like

    Difference btw Copy,Setup and SFX files

    u will soon understand it no need to worry
