Hi Sunny,

you might have along way ahead of you, but I once tried this solution.

The main difference is that you will need a zip file which contains at least one of the files in the encrypted archive. Read the readme!

So...if it is your own zip, you might be lucky...;-)

Otherwise - have you tried one of these solutions?

Good luck!

Use either a commercial password recovery or commercial password remover utility such as www.elcomsoft.com or www.LostPassword.com 

Depending on the value of what you're trying to access the small fee may very well be worth hours of guessing.

    Activation code of winzip32 need to run winzip


    If all you need to do is unzip ".zip" files, you do not need to purchase WinZip. Windows XP, Windows 7, and Windows 8 all have a free extraction tool. You just right-click on a ".zip" file and click "Extract All". Hope this helps.
    If you have downloaded and installed WinZip, but do not need it, just Uninstall it.
