The following some questions commonly asked about ZIP files.
What is this Zip and Unzip stuff?
A zip file is a single compressed file that contains the complete set of program files. Compressed files are valuable in the electronic world because they cut your download time drastically, and they make it possible to download just one file rather than the full set of files (which can often be dozens of individual files).
To decompress (unZIP) a zip file, you need a copy of an unZIPing utility. We recommend WinZip. It is a shareware program, which needs to be registered (paid for) if you plan to continue using it. It is also distributed in a ZIP format, but it is a "Self-extracting" variety -- simply download it to you temporary directory, and "RUN" it to extract the program files.
