Associate compress folder to another file type

How do I assocate the windows compressed folder in Windows XP with other file types. I want to associate  WAR and JAR files with the Compressed (zipped) folder. I can not down load any programs to my company laptop.

If you are certain that the Windows Compressed Folder Extraction Wizard is able to handle those file types, do the following in order to reassociate them:

- Start > Run > cmd [ENTER]
- type:
assoc .WAR=CompressedFolder [ENTER]
assoc .JAR=CompressedFolder [ENTER]

Of course, you need to type those commands inside the command terminal (DOS prompt) that will open.
