Suggested Description

WinZip brings the convenience of Windows to the use of ZIP files.
Includes PKZIP-compatible built-in zip and unzip, so PKZIP is not needed
for basic archive operations.

New in version 5.5 is the ability to install, try, and UNINSTALL
software distributed in ZIP files. This feature runs the install
program in a ZIP, gives you a chance to try the program, and OPTIONALLY
deletes any new files, icons, program groups, and restores any altered
INI files.

WinZip includes a powerful yet intuitive point-and-click drag-and-drop
interface for viewing, running, extracting, adding, deleting, and
testing files in ZIP, LZH, and ARC files, including self extracting
archives. Optional virus scanning support is included.

Other Information

Requirements: Windows 3.1 or Windows for Workgroups. No other programs
are required for basic ZIP operations. Optional features
require external programs, including the shareware
PKZIP/PKUNZIP product from PKWARE, Inc. or ARJ from Robert
Jung or LHA.EXE from Haruyasu Yoshizaki. WinZip interfaces
to several programs to access ARC files and optionally runs
most virus scanning utilities, including Windows-based
virus scanners.

Registration: $29 (includes shipping) to receive disk with latest version
