    My PC runs in Windows Vista. Recently I have downloaded a zip file. When I tried to compress it I could not find any option to Unzip. What should be done in such a situation?

    Hello Friend...

    I think Zip file not a properly download in the your computer then it show the miss file in your computer..

    you need to re-download the file then you compress the file then working..

    it may be missed file uploaded in the net show you can't be find the file...

    All the Best!!

    Many times , it is require the unzip the file.
    when we download the files and some files are exit in zip mode , and we require to unzip that files to open it.
    now your problem is same that you are unable to open the zipped file and require to unzip to open the file.
    If you want to open the zip file in vista , then you require to download the software winrar or winzip.
    After download and installing the winrar you can upzip the zipped file and you are able to open the zip file in window vista or even any other operating system

    Open the zipped file in window vista

    --> Go to official site of winrar and download the winrar
    --> Install it in your pc
    --> now go to unzip folder and right click on it.now click on "Extract all".now your zipped file folder will unzip and you can see unzip files.

    well you can use third party softwares for this issue some names are given below which are known for its high compressibility
    1) Winrar (this one is Awesome you can download a free copy from internet its size is only 4 or 5 mb. it compress the file in all formats. even you can set a password for your file in this software)
    2) 7zip this one is also the best.
    3) Winzip (compress the file in zip format)

    but you can restore your system if u have any problem or just uninstall and reinstall the program if u have installed it at earliest..

    Hello,


    Your having the unzipping issue because of WinZip software problem. It seems that the Winzip software
    is not properly installed to your PC. You should first uninstall the WinZip software from your PC and download
    the latest version of winzip from the Internet. You can also download Winrar. Then install it to your PC. Your
    problem will be solved.

    Bye,
