Editors' Review

+
This freeware ZIP-file extractor doesn't have much to offer most users, but you'll need it to open archives encrypted with PKWare products such as PKZIP or SecureZIP. ZIP Reader's interface couldn't be more laconic; you simply select which file to extract and where. You can also access the program by right-clicking an archive in Windows Explorer. ZIP Reader supports popular archive formats besides ZIP, including RAR, TAR, and GZIP. In our tests, however, it scrambled the names of files written in Cyrillic letters. If you need ZIP Reader, you probably already know it, and don't need convincing. But if you don't use PKWare software, you're probably better off with another, more full-featured utility.

"Unable to install"

May 30, 2012  |  By memyselfandi75

 |  Version: ZIP Reader 12.5

Pros

Can not list any because I couldn't get to install.

Cons

Could not install in Win 98se. Said that it expected a newer version of windows.

Summary

Would likely have given it a better rating if I had been able to install in Win98. The compatibility list claims I should be able to.
