      Description

      When you try to open a non-blueJ JAR file that is on a read-only folder (or
      read-only floppy/usb) this is not possible.

      1. It should be possible to specify an alternale location for the extracted
      files.
      2. the error message is now: "The output directory for the archive being
      extracted already exists". This is incorrect and should read "the output
      directory [name] cannot be created. Make sure you copy the archive to a
      writable folder first." or something similar, unless of course the user is
      given the option to specify his own location for the extraction.
