Windows XP came with it's own built-in unzip utility... when Winzip started
charging for their utility, that's when I stopped using it because I have
the free built in utility. Ditto when I checked out WinRar that someone
suggested... It's also and evaluation period only and then pay $$... why
when I already have a free built in utility?
Believe me when I say that when you right click and try to open a zip file
in WinXP there IS NOT an intuitive way to find Windows native decompression
utility... that ONLY occurs if you have Winzip, WinRar, or other THIRD PARTY
decompression utilities! As to whether XP is an out of date OS as someone
else said, that is not germaine to the discussion unless they want to
forward their credit card info to me so that I can purchase Windows 7 :-)
!!!!!!!! If WinXP is so bad and out of date, why did MS keep it around thru
the Vista debacle until the next OS came along?
As I explained in my original comment (following), I can rename the "sqz" to
"zip" and WinXP free built-in utility opens it and expands it fine. So,
expanding an "sqz" is no big deal... it was interesting for me to learn that
it could be expanded simply by renaming it to a zip extension!
Jim said, "There's no need to do that. Right-click on the .SQZ file and
select Open with... and select your ZIP utility as the program to always use
to open a SQZ file."
Trying this out, I found that there is no "open with" option. I'm using
XP's native zip / unzip and no other 3rd party program and I could use
"Open", but I don't know where to find XP's native unzip program or file.
So, instead, I renamed the "sqz" to a "zip" extension and unzipped it that
The questions I posted in the same email asked for clarification for the
procedure to "use" the project on another computer once the "sqz" was
unzipped and thus move it back to the original computer. Those questions
have gone unanswered, but that's no big deal, it's not an issue I need to
solve today and it has been discussed previously, so I can do some searching
