    Many thanks to all the list members for your feedback.
    I changed asnazip.exe on http://home.freegates.be/asna.
    Now, the archive file asnazip.exe will unzip itself in a directory of your
    choice WITHOUT ANY SUBDIRECTORIES (the Zip utility I used saved my computer
    path without notice).
    By default, the directory where your browser saved asnazip.exe will be used
    for the unzipped files.
    This is the first step of the installation. You downloaded the installation
    files and unzipped them on your hard disk instead of directly inserting a
    CD with the installation files in your computer.
    The second step of the installation is a classic one. In the directory with
    the unzipped files, double click on Setup.exe. This will :
    - copy the ASNA files in the C:\Program Files\ASNA  directory (by default
    but you can change it)
    - copy some libraries in the Windows system directory
    - create a shortcut called 'ASNA' in the <Start> <Programs> menu.
    That's all ! You can run the program using the shortcut.
    (note that at this stage you can delete the directory with the unzipped
    files and Setup.exe, they aren't used any more).
    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Thank you for your remarks. You are right : I will try to find an
    installation program which is a little bit more user-friendly...
