Default Support Request - Opening .zip files

Hey guys and gals, I'm having an issue trying to open .zip files i downloaded from the site. I can open .rar files fine but get an error when trying to open the .zip ones, i was wondering if anyone else is having this problem or maybe i'm just doing something wrong on my end. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Dewayne

Try renaming the files to .rar and then opening them. It used to be that the site uploader didn't accept .rar extensions so people tricked it by renaming them.

Usually it isn't an issue, but if you're using an old version of winzip or something it could cause problems.

Thanks for the help Meurig, after renaming the extention and extracting the file, i had to add the .rar to the file it first extracted again to get it to work, kinda strange. But thanks again!
