JZip not working? (FIXED!)

tips-and-tricks

#1

Howdy!

I use Jzip to zip my files for upload. It’s the only utility I could find that wasn’t 7zip, winzip or Izark… which Envato advise against using. I clicked to open it so I can zip an item for upload, and it said that ‘the shortcut links to a program that doesn’t exist’ or something. I hadn’t changed anything on my system. So I went to the Jzip website and downloaded it again… when I click on the installer, or right click to run as administrator, nothing happens.

Does anyone know if this is a known issue or can recommend another utility for zipping up my files?

I’m on Windows 10 and it was working fine before when I was on Windows 10.

Thanks!

Working now! Looks like an update to my security software decided that Jzip was a trojan, so it had got rid of it without telling me, and also wouldn’t let me open it without giving me any kind of warning message to tell me that. False alarm!
