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

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?

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

Shouldn't all users have the same email signature?

You wouldn't let your users design their own business cards, would you? So, why do you let them design their own email signatures? Think of the damage they could be doing to your brand reputation! Choose the easy way to manage set up and add email signatures for all users.

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
winzip32.ini
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
