Default Etrac Emulator + US Coins file a great tool

I'd not looked at this before. Great tool for getting started:

Also grab the US Coins file and stick it in the folder where the Emulator is installed under "datazips"

"....All you do is click to download the target package you want, for instance for American coins you would click on Larry P's Incredible 61 target US coins . This will download to your downloads file or wherever you have your downloads go. Open where it is downloaded but do not unzip the file. In a separate window go to your C:\Program Files\EtracEm-V1-en\datazips and then just drag the "" file into the C:\Program Files\EtracEm-V1-en\datazips file. Now your E-Trac emulator has US coins added to it...."

All e-trac users I'm sure have tried it out but nothing beats the real thing.

Minelab e-Trac, Minelab Excalibur 1000, Minelab CTX 3030, XP Deus and numerous accessories.

Default unsuccessful

I tried this method with the US coins and did as you stated. I go to the top left of the Emulator and click file, then target zip files, then 61 US coins and click that and an error message comes up stating "The file is not a valid target zip file". Please help, not sure if I missed a step or something further I need to do, thanks in advance!!!!!!!!!!!!
