XTree for Windows
Zip 2.0 Update File

This patch provides Zip 2.0 file extraction capabilities to users
of XTree for Windows version 1.5. It will not operate on earlier
versions of XTree for Windows.

Once this patch is successfully applied, you will be able to
extract and view files in Zip 2.0 archive files (in addition
to Zip 1.1 archive files). "Multi-floppy" Zip 2.0 files are not
yet supported.

Installing the Patch:
1) Copy the contents of this archive into your XTree for Windows
program directory (usually C:\XTREEWIN).
2) Close XTree for Windows and quit Windows (or open a DOS window).
XTree for Windows must not be running when this patch is applied.
3) You may want to make copies of the files listed below on a floppy
disk. It is the only way to restore XTree for Windows to its
original configuration.

Files to be updated: XTREEWIN.EXE

4) From the DOS prompt, type the word PATCH. The update process
is now automatic.

When the patch is complete, check the following files to make sure
they are the correct size:

XTREEWIN.EXE 83,968 bytes
XTWZCFS.DLL 48,575 bytes
XTWUZPE.DLL 72,535 bytes

5) The update is now complete. You can restart XTree for Windows and
Windows, if necessary.

Typical Operations with the Zip 2.0 Patch
The table below summarizes some common functions on Zip 2.0
files after the update has been applied.

This patch is an Alpha-level update. It has not undergone XTree's normal
reliability testing and is not feature-complete. This release is made
available to XTree users in order to access Zip 2.0 files outside of our
upgrade cycle. XTree assumes no liability for problems caused by this
update and cannot provide technical support for Zip-related problems once
the patch has been applied.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
