>>>In all honesty I am not amazing with computers, and have been really struggling with the installation of the program.  I extracted the files and unpacked the .rar, and now when I go to use the program it opens and then immediately shuts down. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong or if I missed something.  I would appreciate the advice.

>Pedro, thank you for the tip I was able to create a .bat file,  I open it and "firefly" (I can't actually tell if it is the program running or not, I'm just trusting you) "runs"; however, I'm still having the issue of the program closes before I can read anything, (it is maybe open for a milisecond.) and no output file is being created.  Is this supposed to happen?
