Install Zip Files


Installing Software from the the Computer Buddies Software CD-Rom Disc

There are two kinds of files on this CD:

One ends in "exe" (anyfile.EXE) and  the other ends in "zip" (anyfile.ZIP).

If a file you choose ends in "exe" load or copy the file to the temp folder on the hard drive and install it as is.

If a file ends in "zip" you must use WinZip to uncompress (open) the file before you install it.
