    I hate zipped files. . . (plz help)

    Ok I downloaded a patch for UT3 but it's zipped right, so i just click on the unzip wizard, but it says 'your evaluation period has expired.' Then I downloaded winzip 11.1 and it said the same thing. . .

    After that I downloaded unzip wizard 3.12 which is supposed to be completely free but it STILL says the same thing. . .

    help!

    I got Vista. . .

    You should be able to Right-Click on it and use the Open With -> Compressed (Zipped) Folders which should be the "native" Winders ZIP handler.

    BTW, love ZIP We use a nice C1 component to ZIP up XML/XSD and XLS bundles encrypted to distribute some HIPAA compliant data.

    Yeah, I kind of thought ZIP evals lasted FOREVER.

    Per X@vier, I use RAR for ZIP/RAR/etc.

    ZIP sucks, it's compression rate is so poor compared to modern standards of RAR.

    Unless you plan to buy a license for WinRAR (I have and its a wonderful utility), use 7-Zip , it's Free and handles most compression formats.

    I know thats possible, but I still paid for the Utility. If ya like it, sure you can do that, but if you want to support the developers, buy a license.

    Yeah, I usually use RAR since the stuff I find tends to be in that format, but you've obviously never worked with the feds who have *specific* requirements (per HIPPA, EMR transfer, etc.) to use ZIP - hence my ~love~ for it (or "love" for the sarcasm challenged...)

    [edit]

    More importantly, did the OP get his issue resolved?
