Working with "Zip" files


When I download files from Jet Reports (installation programs, pre-built reports, etc.), they are usually "Zip" files.  How do I get the actual programs, reports, etc. ?


The vast majority of Jet Reports downloads are contained in compressed or "Zip" files for two reasons: (1) so that multiple files and/or folders can be combined into a single download and (2) to make the download as small and fast as possible.

Before you can use the files contained in your download, you must first extract them from the Zip file.

Microsoft provides various descriptions of how to do this:

  • If you are running Windows 8.1 , this article is specifically for you
