QuickZip > Information

QuickZip is a freeware archiver that can open and extract 14 kinds of archives including .zip without using external programs. It can create a tiny setup program (22kb), turn .zip into self extractables (SFX) with progress bars, e-mailing archives, listing archive in HTML or text format, provide an advance context menu that shows the contents of a .zip and includes icons for each type of archive. It can show the archive directory list when loading any archive. The archive loading speed is very fast, even if the archive includes thousands of files. QuickZip has been translated into 8 different languages and you can toggle the language anytime.

QuickZip Lite

QuickZip Lite is a compact version of QuickZip. It fully supports 25 different kinds of archives, creates sfx (for any supported archives), repairs .zip files and does much, much more.

Download QuickZip Lite


QuickZip Lite was quite small (300kb) when it first started and after adding more and more features (mainly cake) it became about 800kb now which seems too large in some cases.

100K_Zipper is a .zip only archiver. You can create, open, extract and check out .zip files. It doesn't require any installation and it has to be one of the smallest zippers available today.

It's target is 100k (currently 69k) and we plan to add more functions over time.

From the Author

QuickZip and QuickZip Lite are solely developed by me, Joseph Leung. QuickZip was created in December of 1999. I found and downloaded a component called DelZip, which was quite interesting to me. So, I copied the demo code from DelZip and developed my QuickZip. Why QuickZip? I played too much Quake at that time. (and Quake 1... now Half-life...)

QuickZip also goes by the name QZip, for short.

The QuickZip interface, it was quite ugly at first. An Outlook bar and a listbox, then a quick launch button (1, 2, 3, 4 and V) and there after I started to learn how to use grid and version 1.80, I used listview. Many thanks to the DelZip Author, Chris Vleghert, who answered most of my questions, even if they werent't related DelZip and Team B in the Borland newsgroup.

QuickZip is freeware. I am not earning from it (add an L in front of "earn" instead), so all parts (components) that go into QuickZip are freeware, too. For example, the archive loading part of the script came from 4-5 different freeware components (including DelZip). That is why different types of archives have different interfaces. Each component uses a different way to communicate. The code I wrote on archive handling is more than 2,000 lines (as Chris said, I am re-inventing the wheel), although they took me a lot of time, QuickZip still became the second or third freeware archiver to support at least 12 different kinds of archives around Softseek, which led to this software getting more attention. I am converting these lines to component form and when it's done, I will make it avaliable for free.

I think if you tried QuickZip before 1.20, you will notice, although the time between each major release is a bit short (sometimes a month), each major update comes with a lot of new features. There's are some features that QuickZip had before other archivers out there. Such as the archive icon and hotedit. If you have any new ideas, please contact me via e-mail or post in our forums and I will definitely consider it.

I put a few hours everyday into QuickZip. Debugging and adding new features, etc. I know I may stop this project some time, but as long as I have time and I receive support (e.g. asking for help, offering help, submiting bugs, etc/), I will keep it going on.

I hope that you like it.
