Created downloads for my website using Winzip.


Downloaded "Winzip"....used trial version....didn't buy it.
Worked great creating zip files.....mastered the hyperlinking thing on my website for downloads.

2 problems I'm having.....

1.
When a visitor comes to my website and trys to download a document...after the open or save window......they are getting the "Winzip" pop up. Asking then to "use the trial version" or "buy now".
They can use the trial version to download/view the document......but it makes my website/business look unprofessional.

Is there a way to remedy this? Must I Buy the program?
(If I do...will this pop up thing continue?)
Is there another program....or way I can have downloads that just open on my customers computer without the advertisement.?

2.
Once Documents are downloaded they look fine but are printing, out of sink...meaning that some of the type is out of line with where it should be.
I created the documents in "Wordpad"

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanx
Squid.

Try using the program WinRar. I have used it for as long as I can remember. Technically its a trial version, but you never had to buy it, and I have never had a problem with zip files created with it requesting people to purchase a copy.

As to why your documents arn't printing correctly, it is most likely because of the formatting of wordpad. If you don't want to purchase MS Office, you can get an open source knockoff called OpenOffice. It will give you a much more professional document.
