Winrar is free to try for 40 days and $29 for a license after that. 7-Zip is free. But I should have answered your question - yes, it can.

I'm VERY confused. Winzip won't open my zip files.
I finally figured out how to get into the program files. At least I think I'll be able to put a save game in. I'm going to try 7 zip. I'll be back. I think once I get use to the new OS I'll be less nervous.
Cathy
If I install a game in Program Files (86) that's the same as 32 bit correct ? And if I install in just program Files that's the 64 bit part right ? What winrar do I get > 32 or 64 bit ? I can't figure out 7zip. At least winrar puts a short cut on my desktop.

Cathy, Have you simply tried right clicking on a file and selecting Extract All?

Yes I have Drac. I've used winrar for over 15 years and everything has always worked. I'm a little confused again.

You open things with 7-zip by right-clicking them, and choosing to extract with 7-zip. "Extract All" usually means Windows will try to extract the zip file using the Windows extracting utility. There's a separate choice in the right-click menu for 7-zip and things 7-zip can do.

So the right click and Extract All didn't work, correct? I don't have any 7z files, I can try it on. Hopefully the free 7-Zip will work for you.

If you're running 64 bit windows then the 64bit version. The difference is to do with the winzip executable and nothing to do with the types of files your decompressing, that's irrelevant, its just a stream of numbers to winzip. It will unzip files to their original state, whether they are intended to be 64 bit or 32bit is nothing to do with winzip.

Erm I meant winrar obviously :-)

What mj2c said - you download the version that is compatible with your operating system. In your case, that's the 64-bit version of 7Zip or winrar.

OK I got 7zip 64 and unzipped a few files and they worked. Is this OS ever different than XP.
