Can users manually extract and install the software?

Windows users must use WinZip or a similar utility to extract OpenLink components from .zip files.

Unix users must use install.sh whenever possible. Manual extraction is not supported. However, users may use gunzip and tar to extract components, if all attempts to use install.sh fail. For example:

openlink> ls
sql_lt.taz
openlink> gunzip sql_lt.taz
openlink> ls
sql_lt.tar
openlink> tar xvf sql_lt.tar
