Looks like there's a very basic error, e.g. upper/lower case folder or file names. Windows does not care, but Linux on DR does.

You should have
<sdcard>/
..........Programs/
...................._dr800+
....................dr800+.desktop

Make sure the names are in this exact case (e.g. Programs)! Just copy everything from the archive.

Another thing: attach device to Windows, remove the _dr800+ folder and dr800+.desktop file from sdcard, copy them again from archive, Safely Remove drive and then eject. Safely Remove may be important for the proper file copying!

Oh, how do you exctract tar.gz? Some time ago I was reported with an error, apparently the guys managed to do "flat extract" where no folder structure is preserved and all the files inside the archive are put into the same destination directory. For sure, this is a bad approach.
