When i download demos from the net. I have problems getting these to work.

How do i zip these files to get them to run?

A lot of large download files are usually .zip or .rar files. People might say to use Winzip from click here but I use WinRAR instead from click here It unzips many different types of zipped files. Winzip only unzips .zip files and not .rar files. It's only the evaluation one but if you can be bothered to just click Close or something, you can use it forever.

Most newer MS operating systems (ME, XP etc) come with built in Zip file management and are capable of handling ZIP files as folders.

To extract the ZIP into a proper folder, right click the file and choose extract.

Personally, like jediknight007 I use winrar for most compression tasks, only resorting to winace for ACE compressed files.
