WinZip Self-Extractor 4.0.8672
A companion product to WinZip
WinZip Self-Extractor 3.1 creates self-extracting Zip files. These self-extracting Zip files are ideal for electronic file distribution, because they contain multiple compressed files, minimizing download time and ensuring that important files do not become separated.
Additionally, Self-Extractor allows the recipient to use a familiar Windows interface to decompress files without a separate unzip utility.
Self-extracting Zip files can optionally run a "setup" or "installation" program, provided by the creator, after the files are decompressed.
WinZip Self-Extractor 3.1 is a companion product to WinZip and is separately licensed. The current release of WinZip contains WinZip Self-Extractor Personal Edition, a subset of WinZip Self-Extractor 3.1.
Works with Windows Vista
WinZip Self-Extractor 3.1 is the first version of WinZip Self-Extractor to feature compatibility with Windows Vista. WinZip Self-Extractor 3.1 also features a new HTML help system and new Windows Vista icons.
New Icon Support
WinZip Self-Extractor 3.1 now supports larger icons for self-extracting executables, adding support for 96x96, 128x128, and 256x256 icons to existing support 16x16, 32x32, and 48x48 icon sizes. Vista png format icons are also supported.
New Administrator Options
WinZip Self-Extractor allows you to specify the privilege level at which self-extracting executables may be run. The “Run as Administrator” option lets you create self-extractors that will prompt Vista users for elevated privileges so self-extracting software installation packages have the required privilege level to run on the new OS.
Support for Advanced Encryption
Create self-extracting Zip files that contain AES, 128- or 256-bit key, encrypted files.
Additional Compression Method Support
PPMd and Enhanced Deflate compressed files now supported.
