ZipCentral - zipping, unzipping and creating installers

review from ClifNotes, Date, permalink _ File Management

 

ZipCentral is a very nice zip file management program that I've used on and off for years. The only thing I don't like about it is that it "hijacks" your .ZIP file association. Fortunately for me, I've gotten very adept at fixing things like this over the years. Unfortunately, that's one of the things I hate most about some software installs.

 

Therefore, I give this program a "thumbs down" except for one very useful feature which I have used in the past. It has a very nice zip to exe wizard that lets you create an executable file from a zip file. This is very handy for creating install files for programs or packages of files you want to deliver to folks who aren't really experienced with putting files where they should be placed.
