ZIP 2 Secure EXE
ZIP 2 Secure EXE is a simple-to-use software application that enables you to create self-extracting executable files from ZIP archives, so you won't need a third-party app to extract content.
The installation procedure takes little time to finish and does not require special attention from the user. The interface is based on a regular window with a plain and simple structure, where you can point out the ZIP item you want to process by using the file browser only, since the drag-and-drop method is unsupported.
It is possible to schedule a program for running after unzipping the file, set ZIP 2 Secure EXE to delete files after running the installer and to automatically select the temporary directory for unzipping.
In addition, you can specify an encryption method and password for protecting the self-extracting executable from unauthorized users, edit titles and captions, assign an icon file, as well as establish the output directory and file name.
ZIP 2 Secure EXE carries out a task rapidly while using low CPU and RAM, so it does not affect the overall performance of the computer. We have not come across any kind of issues throughout our evaluation, sine the app did not hang, crash or pop up error dialogs.
Some improvements are welcomed in the visual department of the GUI, though. Other than that, ZIP 2 Secure EXE serves its purpose and can be handled by all types of users, whether they have previous experience with this kind of software or not. No recent updated have been made.
