This article describes how to download the latest version of the CA utility CAZIPZP (CAZIPZP.EXE) from the CA Support Online (CSO) portal. 

CAZIPZP.EXE can be used for extracting any CA-Patch.CAZ file.




1. Access this url to download CA ZIPXP as well as review the necessary documentation:
2. From within the page find the section:
   "If you have not already downloaded the CAZIPXP.EXE utility, download it and save it in a directory such as C:\ca_appsw or a temp directory."
   Click on 'download' link.
3. Click on 'Save file' and save the file in your preferred folder.

Should the folder c:\ca_appsw exist (created during the installation of the applyptf utility), you can then copy CAZIPZP.EXE into that c:\ca_appsw folder.
