Zip files

  [DELETED] 19:17 13 Oct 2003

I have downloaded a zip file for a manual for a QDI motherboard. The problem is it is all unreadable. I have tried using a shareware pkzip software (PKWARE) but without sucess, still unreadable. What am I doing wrong?

Which file types are contained in the zip file, cearve, .docs, .pdf etc.

Hello MAJ.
They are .pdf files.

You need Adobe Acrobat Reader to read them, cearve. click here

Thanks MAJ.
I can see now pkzip is of no use. I'll download Adobe and let you know how I get on.

If the pdfs are contained in a zip file, you'll still need pkzip to unzip the file to enable you to get at the pdfs inside, cearve.

You're a Star *MAJ*. Unzipped the file as before, and read using a copy of Adobe I had on a freebie disk. Information now obtained, thanks.
