Hello everyone,

Perhaps a dumb question, but:

After extraction and successful installation of this program is it necessary to keep the original zip file I downloaded or is it only taking up hard drive space and other than for backup purposes can I go ahead and delete it?

Regards,

Crowfoot.

Once you've installed the program, be it Winzip or anything else, you can delete the installer you downloaded. Only reason to keep it is to avoid downloading again if you need to re-install or if you have a 2nd PC to install on (and the license allows it).
With 1-2 GiB thumbdrives now under $10, you can get one to store about 100 installers this size.

Just be sure you are deleting the installer -- winzip32.exe is the name of the actual program file-- the winzip installer is usually named winzipXX.exe, where the XX is the version number. The latest version is named winzip111.exe and is 9.98 MiB in size. The program file will be much smaller.
