WSZ Files?

The last three skins I tried to download didn't work right. Instead of the winamp skin changing to the one I just dowloaded it gave an error message that said "Access to the specified device, path, or file is denied." The icons looked like they were wordpad files. When I was downloading them the dialogue box said that they were .wsz files(OmegaRed[1].wsz). I am in Windows 2000 that might have someting to do with it. I'm not trying to submit a skin. I'm trying to download a skin. So what's up?

Is it your office computer? Sounds like somebody doesn't want you accessing WSZ files.

In any case, the workaround to this problem would be to right-click the download link for a WSZ file, pick "Save As..." and download it to C:\Program Files\Winamp\Skins or whatever directory you have set as the skins directory.

You can then access any skin you have by holding Alt and pressing S in Winamp.

i'm not on an office computer, I'm at home. And my skins that I have downloaded before (Sharp Green, etc.) have just turned into wsz files. When I'm changing the files into Zip files it's like I am going to submit them.

What the heck does this have to do with skin submission?
