WinZip Self-Extractor 2.2 is a utility program that creates self-extracting Zip files. These self-extracting Zip files are ideal for electronic file distribution, because they allow the receiver to use a familiar Windows interface to decompress files without a separate unzip utility. Additionally, self-extracting Zip files can optionally run a "setup" or "installation" program, provided by the creator, after the files are decompressed.
WinZip Self-Extractor 2.2 is a companion product to WinZip
and is separately licensed. The current release of WinZip contains WinZip Self-Extractor Personal Edition, a subset of WinZip Self-Extractor 2.2.
