I do agree, that winrar is better. Though once registered, the ads disappear. When you look at it, winrar, winzip, etc. Are all the same, just different UI.

used to be a good format still is sort of.

ace is good for text/doc file compression if you're somebody who doesn't like to use a command line compressor as the best fast text compressor happens to be a command line program call QUAD.

I don't use ace due to the fact I don't like adding WinACE + WinRAR in the same shell ext. as it takes up a lot of space on right clicking.

ACE used to be an excellent product, back in version 1.x.

Version 2 of ACE and WinACE, where great, with superior compression, and an nice interface.

Unfortunatelly, 2.x has been with almost no changes since 3-4 years ago.

If you want to pay, try WinRAR, or better use 7-Zup for an open source one.

No longer a relevant compressor, much less when it is now bundled with spyware/adware/whatever-ware. 7zip and Winrar all the way.

@WinAce Staff:

It would be interesting to see what methods you use to classify Adware and Spyware. Any software that tracks or monitors visited websites and sends this information to a server is considered Spyware. WhenU has long been known to engage in deceptive business practices:

http://www.benedelman.org/spyware/whenu-privacy/

WhenU supported software should be avoided at all costs due to their shady history.

totally agree. winace and its .ace format were good a couple of years ago but compared to winrar and 7-zip supported compression formats and the ratio of .ace are not up to date. i thought winace had died long time ago...

I was kind of surprised to see this is still being updated, no offense to the authors but it seems no one really uses ace anymore, it's going the way of zoo and arc files. Rar and 7-zip both offer better compression, and while this can extract rar it cannot extract 7z apparently, and it cannot create either. Sorry but I really don't see the market for this program anymore. Offering a free version would have been nice, but WhenU is really not something anyone should want on their PC. I'm pretty sure it is classified as spyware.

Hi,

I am a member of the WinAce team.

To clarify:
The shareware version of WinAce 2.65 does NOT contain the WhenU components.

Downloading and installing the WhenU software (which is classified as Adware, not Spyware) is an OPTIONAL and FULLY DISCLOSED method of registering your copy of WinAce.

You can still register your copy by purchasing a licence without ever being forced to install any additional tools or bundled software products.

Well,
I scanned my computer with Spybot and Ad-Aware Pro after installing WinAce and it found NOOOOO traces of WhenU or ANY spyware. So, WinAce in my mind is still #1!

Due to the spyware included, WinACE is now officially dead.

Long live WinRAR and 7-Zip !!
