Request for regular Zip file updates

Recommended Posts


A small request: would it be possible to revert to the standard .zip file as the delivery method? The latest .4000 update files have been archived as 7z format.

I've just replaced my PC and everything I have re-installed all arrives as .zips and Win10 happily and freely unpacks them without having to download and install another program. I always worry about bloatware that come with free packages and I'd rather not install stuff if the default package works OK. Win 10 does not recognise the 7z format. 

Please let me know if it is not possible.

Yes, that's certainly possible.  What I should be doing is using the Windows "Send to Compressed Folder" option as that creates a universal zip.  I like 7z but that's just a personal preference, so I'll switch back to regular zips now.

Thanks for pointing this out
