How to decompress / install .bin file

Hi everyone, I have problem decompressing any file with the extension .bin. Please can anyone help me what to use to decompress or to install this kind of file.

Please help me.

A bin(binary) file is not a compressed file type, Muslimat79, although it can be contained in a compressed file such as a .zip file. That's why you can't de-compress it. They usually are placed in the folder of the program that they are associated with.

use a program called winISO.

The bin file could be a CD image, or a binary file from another source.

As suggested winISO will allow you into the file if it is a CD image file.

Presumably you know where you got it, and what it is meant to contain? CD bin image files often have a corresponding .cue file. If you have this you could investigate the file using a virtual cd emulator like DAEMON Tools, and mount the image on a virtual CD drive - you can then run the CD before burning it if you so wish?

Thanks everyone for your invaluable advice and solution to this problem. I also thanks pcadvisor for this forum. The problem is solved with WinISO
