I don't know how to download & install

Okay my problem is this (see above). To download there are 5 links that I can press

1. Download from this server
2. Download a torrent

3. Mirror 1 (Wuala.com)
4. Mirror 2 (Google drive)
5. Mirror 3 (Yandex Disk)

pressing 3,4 and 5 will make me download a folder of some kind (Datei ordner, I am from Germany) if I open it then there are different options to press like catalogs and then things like clusters. That does not seem to help me.

Pressing 1 or 2 gets me some icon that says space engine with the internet explore logo in downloads. if I left click it it gives me an option to open or save, open doesnt do anything and save just makes another copy or something. Right clicking gives me a bunch of options like "add to archive" or open.

I have downloaded it before (on an old computer, I didnt play it really because it didnt work well most likely do to the fact that my computer was not very advanced and I hope it will work better on my new one) but now I just cant seem to download it or aah... I just have no idea, I am clueless. I have looked through several threads and none seemed to address my problem. I have tried to download it for several hours in total without any success. I really need some help.

First UnZip that folder, then open the folder system and open the file called "SpaceEngine.exe"

If you are not familiar with torrents, the easiest way is to download the ZIP folder from 3, 4 or 5 and simply unzip it. Done.
(you may need software such as 7-zip)

---------------------------------------------
Also, it was clearly explained how to install on the download page


Installation

1) Unpack the archive to any place you wish.
2) Goto subfolder system in the SpaceEngine folder.
3) Run SpaceEngine.exe
You may want to make a shortcut to the SpaceEngine.exe on the desktop.
Do not merge this version with old installed!
