"Maps Not Found" installing Windows zyGrib_win_withmaps2-5.1

Hi: Both with zyGrib_win_withmaps2-5.1.1.tgz and also zyGrib_win-5.1.1.tgz with a separate zyGrib_maps2.4.tgz install, after moving the files out of WinZip to ".../zygrib" (location independent) I receive a "Maps Not Found" "Check program installation" error upon program launch. The program then starts aand everything appears normal and the grib data downloaded displays.

I have tried to put the map files in the primary program directory "/zygrib", in a folder within that directory "/zygrib/maps", in the user directory "/Users/Sara/zygrib/maps", all to no avail and with identical failure results.

Platform is an HP Pavilion dv7 with an AMD Turion II Dual Core Mobile M520 processor running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit

Suggestions?

John, attempting the installation for his lovely wife, Sara.

Hi,

Installation instructions :
Just unarchive where you will, (for eg. Desktop, home repository, USB flash drive, memory stick).
Do not modify the structure of repositories. Run zyGrib.exe, it's all.

More precisely: Run zyGrib.exe from this directory, don't move it.
A+
Jacques

Thanks: It was an extraction error on my part due to unfamiliarity with WinZip. When I clicked on the ".tgz" download, I just dragged the resulting files into a new folder which then generated the error instead of choosing "Extract". Everything is good now.
