"Still works great in Windows XP and Windows 7"

September 25, 2013  |  By quia12

 |  Version: ZipCentral 4.01


Excellent zip opening features, with the option of extracting to a folder, of making a new folder, of making a new .zip file, of adding files to an existing .zip file, etc. Just useful. This program will sometimes open files that 7zip does not recognize. Easy to use. Note for users of newer Windows platforms: If you ever want to use older software and have it run well, right-click the executable (.exe) file and click on "Properties" then go to the Compatibility option and tell it to run as if for an older Windows machine. I don't remember if I had to even do this for ZipCentral, but just in case, you can try it.


None. It's a pretty simple program.


Works great even with newer Windows platforms. Great companion to 7zip with more extraction options and the ability to open some files that 7zip can't open.

I just confirmed that Zip Central also works in Windows 8. Again, I highly recommend it. It is a nice free program without any bloatware or annoying features. It runs quick and does not use many resources.

"Good file compressor"

February 03, 2010  |  By Bruce Ott

 |  Version: ZipCentral 4.01


Most features of previous versions in new version


Eliminated the last file location memory feature which makes more work with multiple file compression jobs due to increased requirements to drill down through directories


Bring back the directory location memory feature of previous versions.
