pop-up blocking
« on: May 22, 2012, 05:19:42 PM »
In trying to launch JustZIPit to unzip a download the program flashes on the screen and then disappears. There help says that popup blockers need to be disabled. Does my free version of avast have a pop-up blocker? If so how do I disable it, so that JustZIPit will run?
Thanks,
Michael

That is what that program is supposed to do, it does not have a UI, it just adds to the context menu.   So when you right-click a ZIP or other compressed file, is there some option there (maybe under "Open With") for JustZIPit?

If you cannot get it to work, I would recommend you try Peazip if all you need is an unpacker.
Signature?  But I gots no pen....

"Operating JustZIPit takes a single-click to zip or unzip a file or folder.
Right-click any file or folder and choose JustZipit Create and the file or folder is compressed quickly to a ZIP file.
Saving time, the zip file is named the same as the folder or file and given the zip extension.

The application includes a second function to perform the ZIP operation, and then add the file to a new e-mail
using your default e-mail client. Oddly, unzipping a file means clicking it and selecting JustZIPit Create.
The application will unzip files created with other ZIP tools.

Compressing and uncompressing is very quick with this tool. It needs no additional DLL or .NET to run.
While the lack of an interface may bother some users, power users looking for simplicity and speed will want JustZIPIt."
Sometimes it helps to know how a program actually works.
