Toss the .zip file and start over.

The Status Meter download is available in versions for Windows and  OS X

It is in the form of an executable ... the file type is .EXE, not .ZIP

Download the version for your OS to your desktop, After the download completes click on the icon for the executable to begin the installation process.

The downloads located here http://my.hughesnet.com/ are .zip and must be extracted before installing. Most newer computers have built in capability to extract and install zip files. I have 7-zip installed on my computer though to handle such files.

Running 7 here also and the extraction (if any) was totally seamless

A "save as" to a designated folder contained only the .exe file as expected.
