You have to extract them first. You cannot run them from inside WinRAR.
Additionally, you have to install Visual Studio so that the .VSIX file is associated to it. You have not done so.
Read the prerequisites, install Visual Studio Community 2017 and then try again.

No, DirectX is designed in such a way that newer versions support previous version interfaces.

I have everything downloaded and I get to the part where you enter the three commands. Can you be more specific on what we enter? I have tried everything, it says it cant find it. I have been at this trying to get the whole thing set up for over 2 hours. What am I doing wrong? I'm quickly loosing interest in this
