I need a zip type program that PC users can open so I downloaded zipit-222.sea.bin but I cannot open it. When I click on it an error message comes from stuffit saying that it is not encrypted blah blah and I cannot get it open.


How would I open this file please so I can install zipit?

I see you've been a busy little mac user C.I. :D

To open those type of files, you'd need stuffit expander (http://www.stuffit.com/mac/expander/download.html).

However Macs have their own built in Zipit function.

Select the file you want and right click and choose 'Create archive of...'

This will create a .zip file. :)

The screenshot Creative Insanity posted seems to indicate that he was using StuffIt Expander to try and open the file.

I don't know what opens .sea - but if you want to zip something up, right click on it and "Create archive of..."

Once again MacaTalk to the rescue. Thanks heaps ;)

Yip Gim been really flat out here getting use to things.. not touched a PC since I got this and can't really see me needing to use one again. The only PC I have left (all other PC related stuff sold) is my development server which has Linux on it.
But yeah.. I am loving this Mac and waited a LONG time for it as you know. hehe

I'm pretty sure .sea files are OS 9 legacy - they stand for 'self-extracting archive'. Of course the new Intel iMacs will have nothing to do with OS 9.

Maybe the site has it's links back to front. I downloaded the lastest, which said was for OSX.. but no matter now as I will just us the internal one.. that will do the job nicely ;)

Do a Google search for a program entitled YemuZip and see how you go with that.

.sea is a self-extracting archive, as GimliNZ notes. It is a Classic application so you must have that installed to expand it. If you're on Intel, you're out of luck.

Wait...I'm confused... Why would a PC user need to open something that's for a Mac? Maybe you'd better start from the beginning... What software is it you need?

BTW - fileinfo.net will find a file extension for you - what it is and what software uses it.

eg; http://www.fileinfo.net/extension/sea

There is a widget for it as well. You just type in the extension and it opens up a web page from fileinfo.net with the info you need.
