7-Zip handles RAR unpacking (and just about every common format), and is LGPLed.

It means your trying to do something you shouldnt be doing. Exactly what that is, I cant tell, because theres nothing you should be doing right now which involves Steam at all.

What you should be doing is installing one of the programs mentioned above, either winRAR or 7-zip. That done, you simply double click on a .rar archive. Then you use the extract function to extract the files from that archive to the folder you need them in, in this case:

c:\program files\valve\steam\steamaps\[username]\Darwinia\mods\

ok ok, i'm not deaf.

Sorry to be so flippant, but you've posted a lot of simple questions lately. Its just that your problem is so screwy that its baffling me what you are even trying to do. How the hell does opening a rar lead to an error finding a dll in the steam folder ?? Insane in the membrane.

To not know what rar is, is acceptable, but to have to ask here what it is, is not. Google will very very very very easily point you at WinRAR and WinRAR comes with a usage guide. A google search is a hell of a lot quicker than asking here too... It angers me that people resort to asking such silly questions when a simple search will suffice.

Also, in another thread, you asked if the rars were available in zip format. I assume from that post that you know what a zip file is and how to unpack it. Thats why when someone says "rar is just like zip" you really shouldn't get very stuck with all this.

download and install winrar.
download a mod.
unpack mod to mods folder.
load mod.

this is exactly what i said in another of your threads.

If any step above foobars, delete and start over.
