Don't think of it as a "self-extracting archive." Think of it as autorun for cute baby pictures.
Software Builders International has released version 6.0 of NetZip, a tool for downloading, installing, and managing .zip files. The new version, priced at $19.99, includes automatic installation of any self-extracting or self-installing .zip file. Also new are tools to create .zip files and a redesigned user interface.
WinZip 6.2 is now available to users of CompuServe's Windows Users Group Network (WUGNET). Version 6.2 supports the UUencode, BinHex, and MIME formats frequently used for Internet email. These formats allow users to send and receive any format file (games, application data, video, or audio). It also supports self-extracting files, which are ideal for sending Zip files to users who may not have an Unzip utility.
