Default A way to decompress .SIT (stuffit) files in win98

I need to be able to open some old Stuffit archives on my windows 98
computer as it would be a PITA to decompress them on my PowerMac 6500
and then try to move them. They were accidentally burned to a CD
compressed a while ago instead of the decompressed contents.

My copy of Virtual PC 3.0 came with a version of Stuffit Expander for
Windows 95 preinstalled when i got it over 10 years ago, so I know
it's possible, but I don't know how to transfer it to my windows 98
computer as I did not have the installer. I can't find a win9x version
of stuffit. I just need a free decompresser that can handle Stuffit
5.0 (.SIT) or earlier files for Windows 98.

Any suggestions?

Apologies but I am at a computer where I have not yet kill-filed you.
Win98 Plus did not come with a program that opened Stuffit archives
and I cannot see that Coffee Cup will open them.
Besides it Runs On: 7 (32-bit), Vista (32-bit), XP (32-bit), not Win8

Please stop posting incorrect information.

NOTE:

once you follow the link it indeed does lead to a free version
but registration is necessary and they will of course send you spam


however the price is right.




Point of interest:

Last year I was working on an older MAC and had been looking for the MAC
version of "Stuffit" . After a long search on Google I finally found an
old ...free version.

Much to my chagrin...the file came *compressed* with the .sit suffix...
thereby needed "Stuffit" to install it.

Soemone webmaster's idea of a joke I guess

Try Universal Extractor:

It claims to do nearly everything, but I haven't had much luck with
it.
