It's *probably* a self-extracting archive, but you're probably right to
be cautious about it. You should be able to use whatever your choice of
RAR unpacking program is on it to get to the underlying file.
I downloaded it to a Linux machine which unpacked it for me fine, I never
ran it as an executable.
