At first you should configure your mailtool. ;-)

The next step should be to read the file "readme" in e.g.

Here is a little part of that file.

The distribution consists of several zip files:

rw1010b1.zip and rw1010b2.zip		the base system
rw1010h.zip				text help
rw1010ch.zip				compiled HTML help
rw1010w.zip				HTML help files
rw1010l.zip				latex help files for offline help
rw1010d1.zip				PDF manuals except
rw1010d2.zip				  PDF version of the reference manual
rw1010sp.zip				files to build packages from source

and optionally the installer rwinst.exe.

The simplest way to install is to run the installer (double-click on
the icon for rwinst.exe and navigate its wizard-like pages).
