Whether Win500 (for the GRE made scanners), or FreeScan (for the Uniden's), I've found that the email programs tend to try an convert the attached file into text, either during the send process, or on the receiving, or maybe one of the email server's in between. They often end up stripping out the formatting that make the file work in the scanner software, rendering it useless, even if the attachment's file extension (*.p500 for Win500 for example) was still in place.I sent a Win500 file to a friend but he said it wouldn't open in his Win500.
What is the proper way for me to send a file, and the proper way for my
friend to get into his Win500?
Thanks in advance.
Once you install WinZip, it's real easy.Thanks. I just got WinZip and haven't quite learned it yet, but I will try to zip a file and send it to him if I can figure it out.
I have also found that Explorer's zip/unzip can corrupt files; it's not very reliable. Better to use an external app for things like this 73 MikeWhy don't you just find the file and right click and hit send to zip folder? No need to download programs to do this. It's built right into windows.
7-zip is working just fine on my Vista 64 Home Premium laptop. (The WinZip version I have is not compatible with Vista, so rather than purchase a newer one, I downloaded 7-zip for that specific machine.)Might not work with Vista according to their website.
