When an IPS generated package is received, it needs to be unpacked. The unpacking step recreates the ADR directory structure, uncompresses all included files, and imports all exported ADR metadata.

You can still use Winzip to extract the files but ADRCI unpacks the files in a structured way and files are easy to access.

This document gives you the steps to unpack.
