I need help if anyone can lend a hand. I am trying to download wavesurfer. I didn't know you had to have Winzip downloaded first in order for the program to open after it downloaded. The first time I downloaded after it was finished it gave me a response that said to choose a program. I didn't know what program to choose so I chose Kodak Imaging which I know now is the wrong application to use. Now that I have Winzip downloaded I can't get the download to go to Winzip it goes automatically to Kodak. I have tried removing the cookies to wavesurfer but it's not working. Can anybody help please. Thanks. rayrocky7 :confused:

WinZip should have added some things to your context (right-click) menu, like "Open with WinZip" or "Extract with WinZip", or something along those lines.

You could also open WinZip and choose to open the downloaded zip file from there.

Somewhere in the settings for WinZip there should be a place to make WinZip the default application for zip files.

You need to change the file association or it is always going to try to open zipped files with that Kodak program.

Go to the zip file and "Right-click" then choose "open-with" follow to the new box and choose WinZip. Be sure to check the box in the lower left that says "always use this" and apply>Ok your way out. Then any future zip files will open with the right program too.
