Switching over to mainnet - radarlarry1 - 04-07-2020

Received the PSA this morning about the Mainnet now being available for non-dev types.  Official miners and DIYs.  A link is provided for those who wish to upgrade.  The link is a wiki for the Skywire mainnet.  Scrolling down to the set-up section, the only info I can find on "how to do it" is a Skyimager user guide.  Following these instructions the first thing to do is download the Skyimager app.  After downloading the .rar file onto my Windows 10 laptop and unzipping it as instructed, I am left with a skyimager file with a .3 extension.  I understand that the .3 extension is usually used for audio.  I was hoping for some kind of executable... The wiki goes on to clicking the file and opening the skyimager app.  Obviously, this doesn't happen.  I just asks me what program I'd like to use to open the file.  SO...???  Any help with this is appreciated!  Also, sorry if I have posted this in the wrong area.
