You will first need to unzip it (Windows can do that for you — ask it to 
"extract all files"), then ask TeXworks to open the template file and 
modify it as necessary (save the modified version elsewhere, so you 
always have a virgin template to which to return for the next project).  
Make sure that the "engine" selected in TeXworks matches the engine 
expected by the template — this will probably be PdfLaTeX, but may be 
XeLaTeX, or some other TeX_based engine.
