Why su2pov may not create a ".pov" file? I click on "Render !" and nothing happens... ".pov" is associated to "pvengine.exe".

I got the following error when downloading su2pov:
"can not open file .........su2pov/JS/slider.js". I'm new to file extraction; does each file, residing in a folder, have to be extracted individually?
