    Is pkunzip good enough for unziping downloaded theme files or do I need to purchase something like Winzip? Thanks

    Like I said in the original thread, 7zip is free.

    sunkast, I think you're the only one here that knows about unzipping files. Is the unzip thing on Windows no good for this? I just downloaded 7zip. Now what do I do....I'm truly desparate now.

    You can use the built in extraction tool in windows. The difference is that these apps offer more features and better compression. Simply install 7zip and then you can use 7zip to unzip the file.

    But sunkast, that's like saying to a 5 year old, you've got all the tools, now just build the house! How...do I upzip the file?

    It's pretty straight forward. Open 7zip. Browse to the zip file. Then open the zip file. Extract/unzip. Now that's like talking to a 5 year old. No offense, but can you not figure out anything on your own?

    To unzip a file, just right click on the file and a menu comes up. Click on extract all and it will unzip the file. It's built into windows and you don't need any other program to do it.

    Good advice. Now what is the COD file and am I to do something with it?

    rwbarnes67, you're right, I didn't need another unzip program. It's done. Thanks to all.

    P.S. There seems to be a lot of complicated tasks in "Blackberry 101" that are unnecessary. And again, you run across sentences that aren't explained, which stop you in your tracks, such as, "Some themes may have odd names such as com_plazmic_theme-name so it's best to vie the properties of the item to insure it is the correct theme." Vie the properties? Another setback and time consuming question for the forums.

    Maybe you just need to just vie the properties.
