WINZIP IMPROVES FILE DISTRIBUTION SOFTWARE.

WinZip Computing has significantly improved the effectiveness of its file distribution solution with the release of WinZip Self-Extractor 3.0.

This latest version of WinZip Self-Extractor supports the same improved compression technology (PPMd) and advanced encryption (AES with 128- and 256-bit keys) found in WinZip 10.0 and WinZip 10.0 Pro. This allows users to create self-extracting Zip files that are smaller and offers the ability to distribute encrypted information. WinZip Computing broadens the feature set of WinZip Self-Extractor further by adding support for enhanced deflate compression and high-resolution (XP-style) icons.

A self-extracting Zip file is an executable file (.exe) that contains a Zip file and can extract (unzip) its contents automatically. Users can run a self-extracting Zip file the same way they run any other program: simply double click on the .exe file. This makes self-extracting Zip files ideal for electronic file distribution.

In the business world, WinZip Self-Extractor 3.0 is a straightforward and cost effective method for distributing programs, drivers and data, without confusing instructions for the end user. For personal use, WinZip Self-Extractor 3.0 offers an uncomplicated approach to making Zip files available on a website, CD or DVD, where friends and family can access the contents without a separate Zip utility.
