What is ZIPX file?

The files that come up with the .ZIPX format are basically the compressed ZIP Extended files. This file format was released with the WinZip application version 12.1. Prior to this version, the application made use of the .ZIP extension.

This file format has been introduced with 4 different compression algorithms to the .ZIP file format, which is the reason why Corel Inc. after intense pressure named the file format as .ZIPX instead of ZIP. WinZip was the very first version that made use of the latest algorithms, which broke compatibility with the other ZIP compression tools. Presently, most of the latest compression tools support this .ZIPX file format.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the ZIPX file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the ZIPX file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the ZIPX file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the ZIPX file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the ZIPX file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
