Utilizing ZIP Files?
« on: August 19, 2009, 09:32:08 am »
I recently downloaded the latest Action Replay Code Manager Software on to my computer; it came in a ZIP file. How do I use ZIP files? If I'm not making sense, that's fine; I'm trying to get my Action Replay to read my DS, which has been a frustrating experience so far.


Also, should this topic be somewhere else?

if you're using XP/Vista/Mac/Linux, just rightclick the .ZIP file and hit extract.

(In before someone links to the shitty program WinZip that hardly does anything with anything)

Open
Encrypt by ADSM
Open with...
Share...
Scan for Security Threats
Send To-> Compressed (Zipped) Folder
          Desktop (Create Shortcut)
          Documents
          Mail Recipient

If you're trying to unzip the file, use 7-Zip/WinRAR.

Personally I prefer 7zip than the built in one for Windows.

But if you want you can just open it and it will display everything within it (as if it were a folder) and copy the files out of it (copy and paste)

Should I open it as a Word file?

EDIT: I opened it in Wordpad and got a bunch of gibberish (not surprisingly). Where should I copy it to? As I said, this is the latest version of Action Replay Code Manager.

Just download and install 7z from this: http://www.7-zip.org/

Edit: If you're on a Win32 operating system, download the 32-bit .msi file, not the .exe.
