    If you have it open in WinRAR, it is probably within a compressed directory. Close WinRAR, navigate to where the directory you just had open is(the icon should be a little pile of purple books) Right-click on it and click "Extract to [name of file]" Then open the newly extracted folder and your file will be in there. Now, to change it's extension, you need to have file extensions showing, so at the top of the Window, click Organize>Folder And Search Options That will open a window called "Folder Options". Click the 'View' tab. Make sure 'Hide extensions for known file types' is unchecked. Then click Apply. Now go back to the file you want to make a dll. Right-click on it and select Rename. Just change it to delete the other extension(ie. .txt) and change it to .dll
