I purchased a sealed retail packaged version of WinZip 17 Standard from Amazon for $40 and installed it. The activation process is one of the worst I've experienced. First, the activation process REQUIRES you to give Corel a valid email address and it requests all kinds of other personal information which is none of their business. More important, it repeatedly will not activate even though I used the exact activation serial number provided inside the package. It keeps saying "invalid activation code" and that my trial version will run out soon, even though I bought and paid for a full retail version. I have emailed WinZip support for help, but with no response as of yet.

Downloaded and installed but when attempting to register product Winzip Server says the Validation Code has already been used and asks me to buy the program from their site. Sent help request to Amazon. Looks like I need to get my money back as product is unusable.

UPDATE: Contacted WinZip support (who is only available during weekdays BTW). They quickly sent me a new validation code, which worked. However there was no explanation why the problem occured and I see from subsequent reviews that validation issues are a recurring problem.

Platform for Display: PC DiscEdition: Standard Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
For those looking for basic ZIP fucntionality, this one is excellent.. I have no reservations about the 5 stars. My previous employer used to distribute a 'free' zip utility (and a 'free' PDF generator) to all employees to save money. I purchased WinZIP for use at at work becaus it was just so much better. During installation, you can allow it to attach to Win explorer, then entries are available from the right click context menu that make this so convenient: creat a zip form slected files, a folder, and UnZip to anywhere. It really works very well... but I have issues.

I have been using WinZIP since it first came with a 'pertetual license'. That is, once a version was purhcased, all follwing updates were free. That lasted until, I believe, version 10. After that the company was bought out by Corel (and maybe someone else before them) and there are now charges for new versions about once a year (although minor updates & fixes are free). For that reason I have been opting to upgrade about every three major versions. I feel like they are milking the clients, so to speak. That's OK with me; an update every third year seems work just fine for me. (This is not unlike the annual subscription rather than a simple one-time perpetual license that both Microsoft and Adobe have implemented. Better revenue stream no doubt.)

Although others have indicated registration issues, that seems to be fixed. I had no problems. However, during installation, I opted to install in a different folder that my current version 14, expection to be able to test this version before removing the old. However, the old version was completely uninstalled with absolutely no indication this was going to happen. Not a nice thing to do, I feel. (I do have the old installation files and keys so it can be undone.

Like many previous reviewers I downloaded the product. When I tried to activate it I received an error message saying that some file could not be saved.

I submitted a support request but five days later had not received any response.

I tried again to activate it and this time received a message saying that the activation code had already been used.

The evaluation version also added an Add-in to Outlook which then stopped the synchronization with Google Apps.

I see that their standard response when people have reviewed the product poorly is to ask people to submit a support request. This is useless when their support department doesn't respond.

Winzip is a complete waste of money

Platform for Display: PC DiscEdition: Standard Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This zip software is a recent permutation of the traditional WinZip software that has been around for years. I've used their software since I started using Windows operating systems.

What I look for in zip software is something that works inconspicuously in the background, this is not that kind of software. WinZip 17 impressed me as a software package that wants to be up in front on center stage saying look at me.

I worked with it for a time trying to calm it down and finally uninstalled it and reinstalled my old faithful WinZip 90 which I've used for years and still does all I require of it; zipping and unzipping software.

This package is undoubtedly suitable for those who are looking for a more complex zipping program and I encourage people who need such a program to try it. If, on the other hand, you are just looking for a quiet software that runs unobtrusively in the background this may not be it.
