Trouble extracting zip file
Hello! I'm having some difficulties with downloading a theme I purchased online. I downloaded the theme, which was a zip file, and when I attempted to extract the file, it opened into 16 different COD files. I'm trying to get this theme on my BB, but Desktop Manager will only recognize ALX files. I've tried numerous times to convert the COD to ALX (using a code I found in my search) with no success. Did I extract the files incorrectly? I used winzip, and clicked on "extract to..." and put the whole thing on my desktop.

Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks so much! It's a shame that I wasted my $5 on a really nice theme that I simply cannot use. I don't have a data plan so I don't have the option of downloading the theme directly from my BB.

You only need it to see the alx. It will install the cod for you

Extract your archive to the desktop in a folder.

Open DTM, go to manage applications, hit browse, navigate to that folder that u extracted it to, click on the alx file. The dtm will do its thing... After that, hit next in the manager, and it will install it for you. Its now on your phone

Is there a jad file in there? If so, copy the folder to your SD card and navigate to the jad file on your device (I used to use the file explorer in Media, but now 5.0 has a separate Files app). It should open in your browser and install.

Failing that, I would contact the developer and request either an alx or a jad file so you can actually install all those cod files.
