Editors' reviewWith this extraction tool, users can turn existing ZIP files into password-protected, encrypted, and self-extracting files, yet some options are disabled. ZipWorx SecureSFX has an intuitive and uncomplicated tabbed interface. Creating self-extracting compressed files is a feature already available in the standard WinZip program, but this application provides more advanced features. You'll be able to password-protect your ZIP files and encrypt them using the supported AES encryption methods. We like that you can view the details of the building progress. Although you can select compression settings, this demo version disables the Hyper Thread Compression Performance option, which claims to effectively compress ZIP files into a much smaller size. Due to this limitation, ZipWorx Secure SFX may not replace your optimum self-extractor utility, but it's definitely worth a try.
Offering royalty-free distribution of created files, ZipWorx SecureSFX also adds double-stronger encryption (AES 256bit), better compression, save/restore build projects, customizable dialogs, and other functions to the usually boring do-it-yourself no-features self-extracting files. Your self-extracting files are not only much more secure, but also up to 30 to 40% smaller! Plus now, they are just easier to build. ZipWorx SecureSFX v3.0 features: easy load or browse for a ZIP file, ability to rename the output executable file, advanced compression support, ability to set different additional options.
