How do I extract a tar file or a tar.gz file on Windows?

If you don't have a program like 7-zip that will extract tar archives, you can use the following steps.

First, open a Schrodinger Command Prompt window (Start → All Programs → Schrodinger-release → Schrodinger Command Prompt).You can then extract a .tar file with this command:

tar -xvf name.tar

If the file is a .tar.gz file, use these commands:

gzip -d name.tar.gz
tar -xvf name.tar
