NOTE: 

All Download files are in ZIP format (Connected Components Workbench can be downloaded as "B1" Format):
With B1 Archiver, right click on the zip file and select extract to "the zip file name shown". This extract the setup files into their own folder.
I recommend extracting all setup software into a folder called "Rockwell Installation Software" on your hard drive or a USB drive.
