7.0 SR-1 (1285) (1998)Archive Extractor Archive Viewer Country of Origin - USA Popular Software
A major revision of this popular archive tool for the Windows platform.
The application is described as follows in the file WINZIP.TXT:
Have you ever used the Internet, AOL, or CompuServe? If so, you've probably encountered ZIP files. Are you a Windows user? If so, WinZip is THE way to handle these archived files.
WinZip brings the convenience of Windows to the use of Zip files and other compression formats.
WinZip features include:
Windows 95/98/NT integration: WinZip includes long filename support and tight integration with the Windows 95/98/NT shell. Drag and drop to or from Explorer, or zip and unzip without leaving Explorer.
Internet support: WinZip features built-in support for popular Internet file formats: TAR, gzip, UUEncode, XXencode, BinHex, and MIME. ARJ, LZH, and ARC files are supported via external programs. You can use WinZip to access almost all the files you download from the Internet. In addition, the freely downloadable WinZip Internet Browser Support Add-On lets you download and open archives with one click using Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
Automatic installation of most software distributed in Zip files: If a Zip file contains a "setup" or "install" program, WinZip’s Install feature will unzip the files, run the installation program, and clean up temporary files.
The WinZip Wizard: This optional feature uses the standard and familiar "wizard" interface to simplify the process of unzipping and installing software distributed in Zip files. The WinZip Wizard is not targeted at experienced users, but is ideal for the rapidly growing number of PC users getting started with Zip files. When these users gain confidence or want to use more advanced zipping features, the full WinZip Classic interface is just a click away.
Favorite Zip Folders: WinZip lets you organize Zip files into one convenient list that is sorted by date, making it easier to locate all Zip files, regardless of where they came from or where they are stored. Unlike the standard File->Open Archive dialog box, the Favorite Zip Folders dialog box treats the contents of multiple folders as though they were one folder. A Search facility will find any Zip files lost on your hard disk.
Create files that unzip themselves: WinZip Self-Extractor Personal Edition is now included with WinZip. Self-extracting files are ideal for sending compressed files to others who may not own or know how to use file compression software.
Virus Scanner Support: WinZip can be configured to work with most virus scanners.
