WinZip Self-Extractor Personal Edition is a separate and complete application included with WinZip at no extra cost to licensed users (under the terms of the WinZip License Agreement). The Personal Edition is a simplified version of our full-featured, separately licensed product, WinZip Self-Extractor, and can be used to create self-extracting Zip files.
A self-extracting Zip file is an executable program (.EXE file) that includes a Zip file and software to extract or unzip the contents of the Zip file.
Users can extract files from a self-extracting Zip file by simply running it, just like they run any other program. Thus, self-extracting Zip files are particularly well-suited for distribution of software to beginning users who are not familiar with the concept of Zip files; they do not need to have, or know how to use, a Zip file utility.
Be sure to review the list of features available in the full WinZip Self-Extractor product that are not available in the Personal Edition.
