I owe much to Stoyan Ratchev, whose DRSBUILD utility inspired me to write this Windows application to simplify using that application.

If you wish to remove DRS Explorer, then click Start...Settings...Control Panel...Add/Remove Programs. Scroll through the list and double-click on the entry for DRS Explorer. Setup will walk you through the uninstallation process.
To start this application, click Start...Programs...DRS Explorer and click the DRS Explorer shortcut you will find there. You can launch this readme file by clicking "Readme" in the aforementioned group, or by selecting "View Readme" from the Help menu of DRS Explorer.
First, click the "Select DRS File" button to select the .drs file you want to perform transactions upon. A classic Windows Open dialog box will appear. The default folder is "C:\Program Files\Age of Empires\data". Use the normal steps for selecting a file in Windows '95, and click "Open". If you have selected the wrong DRS file, or after the current transaction you wish to do another with a different DRS file, you can click the button at any time.
Second, if you wish to add or replace a file within the DRS file from a file that is located outside of the DRS file, you have previously selected, click the "Select File" button below the "Select DRS File" button. Select the file you wish to add or replace. Make sure this file has a name following the customary guidelines for DRS files like gra00002.slp (see "drsbuild.txt" in the folder you installed Data Explorer in for more detail or click "View DRSBUILD Readme" on the Help menu of Data Explorer). Then, simply click "Add/Replace File" or "Replace File", and the duty corresponding to each respective button will be carried out.
To extract or delete a file that is already within the DRS file, click your mouse inside the "File Name:" text box. Then type in the filename (such as "gra00023.slp"). Such a filename may include the "?" character and the "*" character. "?" represents one character of any kind, and "*" represents any number of characters of any kind. Then you can click delete to delete it from within the DRS file. To extract the file into the directory containing Data Explorer and DRSBUILD, click "Extract File" with nothing in the "Extract to folder:" text box. If you wish to extract to a specific folder on your hard drive, type it in the "Extract to folder:" box and then click "Extract File".
Please send your feedback and bug reports to me! I am always glad to receive them, and DRS Explorer 1.2 will be better for it.
