.7z is a compressed file, just like .zip, .rar, ect.

To un-compress the file in it (to get the .z64, .v64, or .rom), download 7-Zip.

Hope this helps!

I use WinRAR to extract from .7z files. It's also good for several other compression file formats.

WinRAR is still way faster and better at memory management, but I still use 7ZFM because it supports way more formats that I see from time-to-time. It also compresses ZIP archives into very slightly smaller files if you want to get into byte details, in general, though sometimes they're about the same. A little over half the time, files resulting from 7Z compression are, by this same margin, slightly smaller than files from RAR.

Not to mention 7-zip (7ZFM) is freeware and open source (some care about that). While WinRAR is trialware and I'm not sure what happens after the trial.

That works if you have WinXP or some other integration. WinXP came with an internal handler for ZIP.

RAR/ZIP/ACE have been studied for password-cracking. This research has not been published for 7Z.

not that I ever care to password my files
As freeware I'm sure that's some social factor behind that.
