After downloading a self extracting zip file and double clicking on
it,nothing happens. Winzip does not open it. What am I doing wrong?
Need some help, am anxious to view this file.

Hi flutterby1947,

Open WinZip and verify the file association configurations.

If it's a zip file and not another archive then rename it from name.exe to name.zip.
