I'm doing a project for school, and I wanted to create an active directory domain on Windows 7 through rktools and other files, but nothing worked, so i'm trying openLDAP. Now, I've downloaded the openLDAP.tgz file, and I have no idea what to do with it on Windows. How do I make it "run" ?

Thank you for a fast answer.

The tgz is the source for Linux.

Look at openLDAP for Windows instead.

You can open/extract .tgz files using 7-Zip.

Though, I agree with @parkydr. If you're installing on Windows, use the Windows tools.

Well, I opened it with 7-zip, that's the first thing that came to mind, but I couldn't get it to work. Thank you for that file, i was looking for it everywhere and couldn't find it. Maybe it's just that I've been working my ass off for 10 hours now, I don't make any sense... – unreal Mar 3 '13 at 18:32
A .tgz will "un-zip" twice. First time gets rid of the gzip leaving a .tar file. Second time actually un-tar's the file. – Kruug Mar 4 '13 at 2:05
