Default Looking for a search program

I'm looking for a search program that is able to search within zip files. I've already tried a few popular programs like Everything and Ultrasearch but they can't search inside a zip files. Does anyone know of one that can do this?

Check whether they have plugins available, maybe from a 3rd party?

The pay version of Agent Ransack, FileLocator Pro, searches ZIP, JAR, 7Z, RAR, TAR, + and allows drag/drop and copy/paste from the results; there's a 30-day trial available but I've not tested it to check whether all functions are there.

I tried FileLocator Pro but it didn't work. I'll have to try it again, maybe I did something wrong.

The easiest is to use your archiving program.
Here's how to use PeaZip to search archives.

Thanks for the suggestion. I've decided to use my archiving program because it's FREE.
