Is there any way to download CC/mods without WinZIP or WinRAR?

I used the free trial for WinZIP while I could, but eventually it ran up. I enjoyed downloading CC and mods. I'm not tech savy at all. I don't want to pay for WinZIP or WinRAR. I know I could do another free trial, but it was a pain to do in the first place since I had to sign up for something to get it. Are there any other options?

    Which one would I download?

    7-Zip 9.20
    Or
    7-Zip 15.10 beta

    If you use Windows, you don't need a separate program for zip files; Windows will open them. You do need a separate program for rar files.

    This is what is written on the site .
    What version of 7-Zip is more stable?

    Now there one main version of 7-Zip:

    7-Zip 9.20 - it's revision 20 of 7-Zip 9 (started in 2009)
    Latest beta versions can fix some bugs of previous versions. So they can be more stable in some cases. In general it's safe to use latest beta version.

    It would be good to use the beta version.

    Currently, I've only needed to click on the .package folder and move the contents to the Mods folder. One problem could be the folders appearing in the user downloads folder after extracted. All I can say is to double check the location of files, but this issue could also be from custom content and scripts not being enabled.

    I'll second 7zip. I know some modders say it doesn't always work for .rar files, but I've personally had 0 issues, 7zip works like a breeze for both .zip and .rar files and the occasional odd modder that actually uses .7zip.

    I use Windows and found that when you select extract all, you get a window giving you the option as to where you wish to extract the files to: use the browser button to get to your documents>Electronic Arts> Sims4> Mods then click the 'done' button. I always have the show extracted files button checked to be certain everything is extracted.

    Also, if you're just using CC (i.e. not script mods) you can always use Raxdiam's Mod Manager. It automatically extracts .package files from compressed folders directly into the program and you just check which ones you want active in your game and it'll put them in your Mods folder for you.

    You can download premium WinZip directly by searching on google. It's very simple to download premium software free nowadays.
