Zip using win rar

Hi
when i go to make a zip file through winrar it says “the file is too big try using rar file” is there a way i can make it so it will zip the file i have or make it accept bigger files, it will work with an rar file but i need a compressed zip file.

Thanks!

how big is the file?, i think ZIP and WinRAR has a file size limit, massive ZIP files dont seem to work well, but i think WinZIP can make them anyway, if i want to compress large files i make a WinRAR SFX exe (no need for user to have WinRAR to open), or for large files a WinRAR SFX that is splitted into small chunks (say, 10MB), splittting large files also reduces the risk of the file becoming corrupted.
