Hi,
I received a file from outside company with extensions " filename.csv.zip.crypt "
they said this file is sent from the server linux by their automated system. and advised us to use the open sources software like ( gnuwin32) to open them in windows 7.

As i am a novice with linux, i don't know how to open the file and convert to format windows;

Any other tips and easy way to convert this file to word, notepad format ????

Looks like it is encrypted with the unix crypt program.

crypt is available in cygwin

Finally, the outside company gave me key to decrypt the file.

But the answer will be useful to decrypty the file without key.
