Windows XP or IE 6 and Winzip

By mdicerbo ·
My boss told me to unload Winzip from all of our computers because he says that IE6 or XP have the ability to unzip the files without Winzip software. Is this true? If it is, which has the capability to do this, XP or IE6? If you can also answer this, HOW does it do it. Thanks everyone.

Windows XP or IE 6 and Winzip

WinZip comes with Qindows XP (not IE6)

As of April 22, 2002, the latest version of WinZip is version 8.1. This version was designed to run on Windows XP.

See MSKB Q320321 or MSKB Q304903

WinZip 8.0 and above will "migrate" to WindowsXP...although 8.1 works best.

"How??" It's the same program -- The first MSKB points you to the winzip site for downloading 8.1.

Windows 98 with the Plus! pack was the first Microsoft OS to include zip file support.

I believe it is also in Windows Me.

Yes, XP does have built-in zip file support.

Now, part of the reason that your boss may want WinZip removed, is that it is NOT a freeware program.
Unless you have a site license, or have paid for EVERY copy installed, you are only allowed to use WinZip for a 30 day 'evaluation' period.

Your boss is trying to save you and the company from a software use violation.
