1. IS THE ZIPX SOFTWARE PACKAGE FREE?
No. You may use ZipX for a period of 30 days after which you need to purchase a license to carry on using the program. The period of 30 days is meant to provide an opportunity for you to try the program before you decide to buy. If you decide not to purchase a license after the evaluation period has expired, then you must uninstall the software on any computer that you have installed it on.
2. HOW DOES ZIPX COMPARE TO WINZIP AND PKZIP?
WinX Software has put much effort into making ZipX as compatible and easy to use as can be. Therefore the user interface is designed to be easy to follow, just like that of WinZip's.
In terms of compatibility, ZipX supports all the compression methods that are normally used in creating ZIP archives. These include Deflate, Deflate64(tm), BZip2 as well as the new PPMd compression method introduced in WinZip 10.
ZipX can also extract files that have been compressed using PKZIP's DCL compression method.
3. DOES ZIPX SUPPORT STRONG ENCRYPTION?
Absolutely! This is the one area where we have put in a tremendous amount of work. ZipX is 100% compatible with the PKWARE Application note, and implements most of the specification including all the encryption methods. This means that all of SecureZip(tm) and ZipX created files are inter-changeable and can be read in either program. So if you are looking for an alternative to SecureZip, this is it!
Even better, ZipX supports the encryption of files using digital certificates which are compatible with those created by SecureZip(tm).
And our price is very competitive!
4. WHERE DO I GET A DIGITAL CERTIFICATE?
Any standard X509 digital certificate will work with ZipX. You will need to ensure that the certificate has been imported into your Windows personal certificate store.
There are a number of Certificate Authorities that issue free email certificates for personal use. These certificates can be used to encrypt and digitally sign your data.
