In the standard procedure, you will download a file named guiVRM.gz or guiVRM, where VRM is the version, release number, and modification. If the zip is downloaded, you must extract guiVRM from it, which can be done on your PC with WinZip or another zip extraction application. You will then need to move the save file contents into a save file named GUIADMIN on your iSeries 400 in a library of your choice. There are a variety of methods for moving save files from your PC to the iSeries 400. The technical support bulletin titled iSeries 400 - PC Save File Transfer Using FTP explains one method.
