Any good free Zip program

Recommended Posts

I see Winzip now charges for their software after the trial period is up. Is there any good free programs for unzipping downloaded files? I just re-installed windows and MSFS and don't have a zip program now.

Winzip was always trusting people to be honest.I guess they've finally found out that people are NOT honest.If you've a grain of decency you purchase it, seeing as you've almost certainly used it for years without paying...

I always thought befor Winzip had a limited use evaluation version for those who just wanted it for unzipping, but didn't use all the other features. It is no longer available. If I needed all the featueres I would purchase it. Glad there are other programs that are free that meet those needs.

If you are using Windows XP it's built in - look for compressed folder under helpRegardsRussell Jourdain (NZL007/ZK-RHJ)

But I've found that a number of .zip files I've downloaded from avsim won't uncompress using the built-in .zip decompressor: I have to load them into WinRar instead. I don't know if WinZip has introduced some incompatibility into new versions or what.
