Win2000 Pro Compressed Folders:
Enabling Compressed Folders in Windows 2000
The Windows 98 Plus! Pak includes a zip package (Compressed Folders) that lets you browse zip files from Explorer. Windows 2000 does not come with this capability. IF you have Win98 Plus Pac, this is a way to keep using it or buy a new compression product. Enable this feature in Windows 2000 by following these steps:
1.) From Win98 Plus! Pak CD-ROM.
2.) Inside plus98.cab, extract all zip-related files (i.e., *ZIP*.*): - DUNZIP.DLL - DUNZIP32.DLL - DZIP.DLL - DZIP32.DLL - ZIPFLDR.DLL
3.) Copy these files to your system32 directory (c:\winnt\system32).
4.) Run the following command from DOS Command Line Window:
C:\> regsvr32.exe c:\winnt\system32\zipfldr.dll
5.) You will see the following message: DllRegisterServer in [path]\zipfldr.dll succeeded. Usually, no need to restart PC or Explorer session.
