Hi I have downloaded the latest version of some open source software as a .tar.gz file, and extracted the contents, but I can't find any instructions on what to do with them now? My existing version has an EXE and a DLL - how do I "build" these from the files in the .tar.gz file?

Many thanks
Tom

Not enough info.
What program are we talking about?
What is the download link?
What existing version are you referring to?
