I am having a problem with WinZip for Windows 7.

I tried un-zipping a Commander Keen installation file, but I keep getting an error saying: "Not compatible with this version of Windows. Check to see if your computer is running on an x86 or x64 program then contact the software's publisher."

So what do I do now? My computer runs on a 64-bit processing drive, but now I'm completely stuck. Do I download something else?

It would help if you could be more detailed about "Commander Keen installation file"

If it's an executable it could be a self-extracting win 16b or dos based file.
If dos based try to run directly in dosbox, great chances it will work.
If win 16b run in VPC or dosbox/W3.x.

Also: edited your tropic tittle, BITS! SO MANY BITS! is idiotic .....
