    WinZip not behaving


    Hi,

    I got some excellent advice about a different issue yesterday, but now I am battling with WinZip.

    I need to send some zipped files, but the default zipper is 7zip, which the other party cannot open.
    I have the W8 Winzip now, but it zips to a file called zipx.

    What can I do to have just an old fashioned WinZip zip file?

    Thanks,

    Karin
