WinZip~Win.Ini

How do I turn off the message?
 When ever I use my WinZip, a window pops up and says;

This pre released beta version of winzip is quite old, ect.
You can turn off this message by adding the line
63_beta1=0
to the [winzip] section of your winzip32.ini file

In the system configuration editor / win.ini
it shows this;
[winzip]
win32_version=6.1-6.2

I've added "63_beta1=0" below that line, on top of it, and at the end,
and it still pops up.
What am I doing wrong?

wanda, you need to remark out the old statement like this, with a [;] in front;
;win32_version=6.1-6.2

Bud,
Can you be more specific.

smeebudCommented:
Copy and paste the [winzip] section from your win.ini.
Then I can be very specific.

Hi Wanda!

As Bud noted, change the entry from this:

winzip]
win32_version=6.1-6.2

to this:

winzip]
;win32_version=6.1-6.2

I had this in mind,
[winzip]
63_beta1=0
;win32_version=6.1-6.2

Tell me how that works.

Thanks Dennis.

Bud,
After I do that,
do I go to "file" and "save" it?

smeebudCommented:
Yes, if you try to exit without saving it will prompt you too anyway.

I did it, then I started it up and it went to the "set up", like I just installed it.
Then the message still poped up.
It created a new line:
[WinZip]
63_beta1=0
;win32_version=6.1-6.2
win32_version=6.1-6.2

Well wanda, we both missed it. Your error message said,
"You can turn off this message by adding the line
63_beta1=0
to the [winzip] section of your winzip32.ini file".

It's your winzip32.ini file that we should be altering not win.ini.
It looks like it should read

[WinZip]
win32_version=6.1-6.2
63_beta1=0

Click your start button, go to find, and type

It will show you right where it is.

Ok,
Now right under
[winzip] add
63_beta1=0

You may have to remark the statement in your win.ini. like this
[winzip]
;win32_version=6.1-6.2

Or experiment with variations of your win.ini, i.e;
[winzip]
63_beta1=0

wanda, It's been a pleasure.
Do come back.
Did you ever go to that 95 tutorial site I told you about;
http://www.eiu.edu/~mediasrv/win95_tut/win95_pt1.htm

Or was it too basic for you?

Regards,
Bud
