I have now downloaded and installed the 'current trial version of PKZip and activated it. The download says "PKZip for Windows 14.40.0028" and the only PK--- program I can find under Program Files (X86) is PKTray.exe and pkss.dll. None of those are found in the ARCHIVER.BB2 and trying Ctl-F5 on a group of tagged files with PKZip2.5 gives "Program not found".
(1) Is there something for the current PKZip?
(2) Or do I need a different version of PKZIP?
(3) Or must I choose a different archiver?
(4) If I go with 7Zip, which of the *SIX!* entries in ARCHIVER.BB2 do I use?
(5) And if I go with 7Zip, which version do I download?

Five separate questions here. Thanks for MUCH-needed help.
