This is a free compression tool that works with zip, rar, and all the other popular formats.

7-Zip actually beats WinZip with its native format by up to 70%, and even creates smaller zips than WinZip.

DeveloperSide.NET Web-Server Suite package, total size 114MB

7z created 7z format(solid with self-extractor included) 22.7MB
*could get down to less than 21MB with better settings
WinRAR created RAR format(solid with self-extractor included) 24.3MB

7z created RAR format(non-solid) 33.9MB
WinRAR created ZIP format(non-solid) 39.8MB


7z was used to create RAR because it turned out to be a bit smaller than WinRAR created RAR.

WinRAR was used to create ZIP because I did not have WinZIP and should be about the same size.

I use to compress:

Install Creator, when I have time
Power Archiver



Install Creator has so far proved to do the best in compression--for some reason, the .exe format it makes works insanely well (I think when I calculated it, it did 60% more efficient than WinRar.)

Install Creator is 100% free--the only limit is the ad at the end of each install, which is pretty much a "created by Clickteam free" and then you click exit and it's over.
