I was advised to uninstall WinZip 9.0 prior to upgrading to WinZip 15.0
I have many zipped/compressed files. Some of these are Operating System-related or part of program files, which are associated with WinZip 9.0
When I go to the Add/Remove section of the Control Panel to uninstall WinZip 9.0 , I'm informed that the uninstall will remove the WinZip Program folder/files , WinZip registry items, and WinZip files.
I'm concerned if this might mean that files now associated with WinZip 9.0 will be removed. Since many of these are vital OS and/or Program Files , as noted above, I did not go through with the uninstall , pending further advisement on this matter.
Does that notification actually mean that those zipped/compressed files will be deleted, or is it referring to WinZip program files not otherwise part of that program folder....???
Would be grateful for further clarification of this matter:
Windows XP Professional Edition SP3
(Hoping to upgrade to WinZip 15.0)
