Dirk,

I can't seem to open the security update for 1.3.11. Don't know if it's the file or what I'm using to open it. I am using WinZip 9.0.

Some people seem to have trouble with WZ, and it's recommended in the install docs to use something else. I've used HJZip. but don't know if it does anything besides zip. (No access to Windows at the moment). 7-Zip seems to do it all.

HTH,

Chuck
Too many hands on my time.

Btw, has anyone ever tried to contact the makers of WinZIP? I find it hard to believe (and somewhat embarrassing for them) that even version 9 of their product can't handle .tar.gz files ...

bye, Dirk

As usual, I don't have a problem with Winzip 9.0. I never had. I'm using it on WinXP.

Then I don't get it, WinZip 9 should open it. Anyone willing to make it a straight Zip for me?

Here it is. Get it while it's still hot!

But I really suggest using 7zip. I never had any problems with it. It's fast, small, easy to use (espacially now they finally support drag & drop) and free.
