Windows Unzip is a program which is used to extract and decompress files
from ZIP archives. It takes the place of both command-line DOS unzippers
and Windows-based front ends for those unzippers.
To use Windows Unzip you must have MS-Windows 3.0 or greater and you
must run Windows in Standard or Enhanced Mode. Windows Unzip will not
work in Real Mode.
To try Windows Unzip, place the files wunzip.exe and wunzip.hlp together in
either your windows directory, or some other directory in your path. You can
then run wunzip.exe from Program Manager, File Manager, or any other
shell. If you don't know how to use File Manager, or setup a program in
Program manager, please refer to your Windows manual.
Rather than explain how to use Windows Unzip in this document, I have put
all instructions in the help file, wunzip.hlp. To view this file you can click
the Help button in Windows Unzip or run the command-line: "winhelp.exe
[path]wunzip.hlp" from Program Manager or File Manager. (Look for the Run
command under the File menu in either program.) If you have used
Windows for any length of time at all, and know about ZIP files, you should
find Windows Unzip easy to use with minimal use of the help file.
Windows Unzip is not free. It is a commercial Shareware product, free from
any Crippleware or Annoyware influences. You are permited to evaluate this
product for 15 days. After that time you must register or discontinue using
