Installation instructions:
Unzip all the files into a folder that is not under C:\Program Files. Recent versions of Windows make ZIP archives look like folders, but you must unzip everything into a folder e.g. C:\MyMaps before opening the .map file with PlanetGIS. Right-click on the .zip file and click "Extract All..."
This archive must be extracted into a folder which has all the provinces of South Africa in subfolders (eg. EC, WC, NC, etc). (See example at the bottom).
