Product Description

Product Description

Make file sharing easy, fast and secure for everyone in your organization with new WinZip 17. The #1 choice in file compression, WinZip now offers support for multiple platforms, secure cloud and social media sharing, and new productivity-enhancing features. Give employees new ways to safely send files without putting corporate information at risk. WinZip 17 also includes PDF conversion, watermarking and image compression and resizing for more streamlined file sharing. Easy network deployment and excellent license pricing make WinZip 17 ideal for businesses of all sizes.

Unzip anything - Extract content from the industry's widest selection of compressed file types, including Zip, Zipx, RAR, 7Zip, BZ2, LHA/LZH and many more.

Zip and email in one step - With the integrated ZipSend service, your employees can send large files and folders by email without worrying about clogged inboxes and bounced messages. ZipSend automatically zips and uploads files to the cloud if they exceed the email size limit, then adds a link to the files in the message.

Secure confidential information - As always, your organization can count on WinZip to protect your company's confidential information from unauthorized access with 128- or 256-bit AES encryption. For extra security, set your own password policy by defining complexity requirements that WinZip will enforce for you.

“Shred” temporary files - For added security, WinZip auto-wipes (shreds) temporary files using the U.S. Department of Defence standard (DoD 5220.22-M) to prevent misuse.

Preview files and folders - WinZip's convenient previewing functionality lets users browse the contents of a Zip before unzipping it. The advanced Unzip and Try feature lets users temporarily review related components within a Zip (such as an HTML page and its associated graphics) without having to extract it first.

Automatic backup with WinZip Pro - Ensure corporate information is backed up with custom jobs that will automatically zip and archive important files. Schedule backups to run unattended, upload them to an off-site server or burn directly to CD/DVD or Blu-ray Disc.

I have been using WinZip for many years and this was supposed to be an update if you had paid for new updates but if you're using Windows 7 64-bit you get an error = 5, you then have to go through a long procedure which I went through with the help desk and none of that helped. Would you believe I've gone back to WinZip 11 and that works fine.

I said to the technical people that I would stop using their product and they couldn't care less, they just ignored it and they must be shovelling in money as hard as possible. It looks as if no one is bothered to write a few more lines of code to make this work properly

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible activation process. Unable to use as purchased. 1 Jan. 2013
By Donkey Man - Published on
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent ZIP utility ... 28 Jan. 2013
By Darwin's Bulldog - Published on
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.) Also, the install options to NOT have a desktop icon or task bar icon were ignored. Easy enough to change from the configuration dialog in the program itself, but kinda irksome to ignore users. Why ask if you don't do what the user wants?

So 5 stars for functionality, but Corel really should look at the irksome issues raised by me and others here.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unusable Validation Code 20 July 2013
By ArtemisShopper - Published on
Verified Purchase
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Also suffered activation problems and very poor response from support 8 Sept. 2013
By johnc - Published on
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
