Gold Box Explorer comes as a ClickOnce application. ClickOnce is a Microsoft technology that enables the user to install and run a Windows application by clicking a link in a web page. There is no file to unzip and the installer to run is simple. You can also just download a zip file containing the binary files. Unzip and run gbexplorer.exe and you'll be all set.
