WinZip Self-Extractor 3.1.7556 description
WinZip Self-Extractor is a useful utility program which creates self-extracting Zip files.
These self-extracting Zip files are ideal for electronic file distribution, because they allow the receiver to use a familiar Windows interface to decompress files without a separate unzip utility. Additionally, self-extracting Zip files can optionally run a "setup" or "installation" program, provided by the creator, after the files are decompressed.
WinZip Self-Extractor is a companion product to WinZip and is separately licensed.
