|Frequently Asked Questions
Does ZipCentral run on Windows 2000?
The current versions 2.02 and 2.06 will run on Windows 2000 with
some limitations. To make ZipCentral run on a Windows 2000 system,
the user starting ZipCentral needs administrative rights (i.e.
logged on as Administrator or member of the Administrators group).
These versions of ZipCentral were not designed to run on Windows
2000, therefore no support can be given on issues that arise from
the use of ZipCentral on Windows 2000. Support for Windows 2000 is
planned to be included in the next release of ZipCentral.
Can I control ZipCentral with command line options?
No, currently there are no command line options included. Support
for this may be added later on.
Is ZipCentral compatible with WinZip and PKZip?
Yes. It should be compatible with all
Zip-archives created in production versions of
WinZip and PKZip.
When I open a zip file, I can not see any files
within it even though ZipCentral shows the
correct number of files in the status bar. What
You probably have an old version of some of the
Windows system files. ZipCentral uses features

original Windows 95 and Windows NT 4 release.

C:\Windows\System or C:\WinNT\System32).

bring up a menu.
5) Choose Properties and then click on
the Version tab.
6) If the file version is less than 4.70 (i.e.
4.00.950), you need an update to make ZipCentral
run properly. In some cases, you may need an
update even if the version is 4.70.

the 50comupd.exe file you just downloaded and
follow the instructions to install the update.
In the "Add files and folders to current

When I click on E-mail archive nothing happens.
Currently, this function does not work well with
certain versions of Microsoft Outlook Express. It
works better with the full version of Microsoft
Outlook. If a solution is found, it will be
included in a future version of ZipCentral.

2.00 grayed out?

and then 'Configuration' in the main menu, then
select the 'Program Locations' tab and enter the
scanner you have installed.
