    Thumbs up 7-Zip Open Source Software

    Advertisement



    7-Zip

    I found this software on another site so I figured I'd share it with all of you. The following information was found on this site: http://www.7-zip.org/

    http://downloads.sourceforge.net/sevenzip/7z457.exe
    http://downloads.sourceforge.net/sevenzip/7z457-x64.msi

    The download links above redirect you to download pages on SourceForge.net
    License

    7-Zip is open source software. Most of the source code is under the GNU LGPL license. The unRAR code is under a mixed license: GNU LGPL + unRAR restrictions. Check license information here: 7-Zip license.
    You can use 7-Zip on any computer, including a computer in a commercial organization. You don't need to register or pay for 7-Zip. But you can make a donation to support further development of 7-Zip.
    The main features of 7-Zip
    • High compression ratio in new 7z format with LZMA compression
    • Supported formats:
      • Packing / unpacking: 7z, ZIP, GZIP, BZIP2 and TAR
      • Unpacking only: RAR, CAB, ISO, ARJ, LZH, CHM, MSI, WIM, Z, CPIO, RPM, DEB and NSIS
    • For ZIP and GZIP formats, 7-Zip provides a compression ratio that is 2-10 % better than the ratio provided by PKZip and WinZip
    • Strong AES-256 encryption in 7z and ZIP formats
    • Self-extracting capability for 7z format
    • Integration with Windows Shell
    • Powerful File Manager
    • Powerful command line version
    • Plugin for FAR Manager
    • Localizations for 69 languages

    7-Zip works in Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP/Vista. There is a port of the command line version to Linux/Unix.

    ______________________________

    For more info go to the main site I posted at the top of this thread. I figured this would be useful for anyone that does not have a .zip program or doesn't know how to use one. This is also good for anyone that wants to post their themes on Pinstack but don't have a zip program to do it. Well, enjoy!

    just wanted to add a very useful tip.

    once you have this program onto your computer you dont even need to open it to create a .zip file.

    all you have to do is:

    right click folder to be zipped>go to 7-zip>select add to "filename".zip

    and there you go. a .zip of the folder should appear right away. didnt even have to open the program

    I use this on all my machines. Works well, even up against the built in XP zip application.
