    A .tgz file is native to Linux/Unix, are you sure it has information in it that is Windows compatiable?

    Unfortunately while WinZip is capable of opening tarred/gzipped files (.tar.gz) it doesn't seem to be able to recognise .tgz files
    My 2 Cents (or is that 2.2 Cents including GST?)

    You could also rename it to something.tar.gz. Winzip has aslways been able to open gzipped tar archives.

    Winzip 8.0 handles .tgz just fine.

    It decompresses the tar ball at your approval and then opens the tar archive.
    Very nice touch if ya ask me.
    Also, there are a few other archive utilities out there that, if I am not mistaken, support .tgz compression/decompression.
    Check cnet at download.com and look under utilities.
