Have to work with Windows 8 and am battling to download and install Filezilla. What do Windows 8 users use to FTP?
I am not winning
WinZip is free but not free
And I am battling to install an alternative
After I download http://www.nchsoftware.com/zip/index.html
I double click it and am asked what I want to open it with Notepad or Word or Explorer
What I can't figure out is how to execute the Zip programme and use it to open and install Filezilla
On Windows 8 Explorer opens zip files for you as it is built in.....as such you should not need to download a zip utility but if you want then.......
Rather download 7-zip at http://www.7-zip.org/ the *.msi file and use that - it's free open source and works very well ......
You can also right click on the downloaded *.exe file for filezilla and choose run as administrator to execute and install as it is in self extracting exe format and does not need to be unzipped.
