Your downloading it but you can't unzip it.
Right click on the icon and log in as administrator.

the best thing to do is make a temp folder on your dashboard and unzipping to it then copying over to your flight simulator folder so you dont make the mistake of unzipping into any wrong folder or overwritting other folders... look up on youtube. search for 'how to install planes in fsx' theres alot of step by step videos
