"Packed file is corrupt"

I was trying to run DIACOM and got this error. I found this Quarterdeck tech note which is an excellent explanation of the problem and work arounds.

Basically a program that has been packed with Microsoft's EXEPACK utility won't run if extended memory is enabled and the program has has a starting address in the lowest 64K of memory.

A program that is supposed to uncompress the binary is unlzexe. (I haven't tried this one; the program I used can no longer be found on the internet.)
