I've been creating a Self Extracting Zip using Zip-2-Secure-Exe, and I quite like the program. But I do run into a particular problem: it seems that overly large files throw errors when they are being zipped.

I've been trying to zip up all of the Runtimes that my setup file will use alongside my setup file, but one of them (about 80 MB) always throws this error:

WindowsError: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.
failedToDeleteFilepath: .\ckz_6G8N.tmp
Failed to append Nth file/directory to EXE.
fileOrDirName: Runtimes/32 bit/CRRuntime_32bit_13_0_11.msi

Is there any limitation on file size that is getting in the way, or is it something else entirely?

@ModalLogicAdam, did you get solution for this? I am having exact same problem. I had converted a zip file 2 years ago which doesn't get converted today. Not sure where the problem is. To start, I have new machine and something is not working right.

looks like the latest version is 15.0.0 and is buggy. Older versions work fine. e.g. I found 14.4.0 on http://zip-2-secure-exe.software.informer.com/download/

that works fine. I have asked support to provide offical link to older version but haven't heard anything in back.
