    * Open '.sit' files *

    Are there any free programs that will open a '.sit' file on a PC?

    This is the extension originally used by the compression and archiving program called Stuffit, most often used on the MacIntosh/Apple family of computers. Have a look here Bruce. <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>bies, of course! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Thanks, Guys! It seems to work, albeit a little wrestling.

    They don't make the Expander a standalone, do they? They say it is free, but it comes with the trial version of Stuffit and when it peters out, that's it.

    This is typical Mac form - and they say MS is all about <img src=/S/money.gif border=0 alt=money width=17 height=15> !
    You might have more joy with <A target="_blank" HREF=ftp://trescftp.dot.ca.gov/pub/decompression_utilities/unins.exe>UNSITINS.EXE</A> - a DOS-based freeware program that expands Macintosh StuffIt archives on IBM-PCs and compatibles. Stuffit archives include: .sit, .bin and .hqx files.

    Or maybe MindExpander - Whether you're using Mac or a PC, MindExpander will expand ZIP, SIT, SEA, and HQX files created by most compression utilities.

    Haven't used either myself, but might be worth a punt. (I'm right into laying bets left, right & centre at the moment, having won on the Melbourne Cup yesterday <img src=/S/money.gif border=0 alt=money width=17 height=15> <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23> ).

    Bruce,

    Expander IS FREE, but you only get it when you download the trial "standard edition". On the Mac they are two separate applications and I would guess the same for the PC. Expander is stand alone and will work without the "standard edition". May be a pain in the <img src=/S/moon.gif border=0 alt=moon width=15 height=15> but this way you at least have a look at what they have to offer. Who know's you might like it and consider $25 a bargin.
