need help installing new skin

I dowloaded a skin that is in a zip format. There is not .wsz file in the archive. How do I install the skin. I have tried to unzip all of the files into my skins directory but it does not show up in winamp when I try to change skins. Please help

You don't have to do anything, winamp will read both zip and wsz

Simply place the zip file in your skins directory,

C:\program files\winamp\skins

Press ALT+S while winamp is running, choose the skin from the list provided.

just copy the .zip to your skins folder or rename it to wsz.

because WSZ files are actually just ZIP files that have been renamed as WSZ so that Winamp can exclusively access them.

Sow a thought, reap an action; sow an action, reap a habit; sow a habit, reap a character; sow a character, reap a destiny.
