    Zip compression has been out in the public domain for over a decade now. There really is no place in the software market for a compressor that demands such a high buy in PLUS an ongoing support cost. There are far more low cost (ie. WinRAR) / no cost (7-Zip, PeaZip, Bandizip, others) alternatives. Not seeing anything groundbreaking or innovative with this release. Just not worth the licensing cost when there are actually better solutions out there for cheap or free..

    Don't Fall For It! This is one of the biggest software rip-offs I've ever come across. $38 and then $8 every year for a ZIP tool? I don't even want that other bundled junk, and I don't think most people will either.

    For the full program 'WinZip Combo' they want £51:54 that equates to just under 80 bucks for you people over the pond - Is this company for real or what?

    With a download of 132 Meg they have defiantly lost the plot, the superior WinRAR is under 2 Meg & was genuinely free for life added to the fact there are several free alternatives that are great - You would have to have something wrong in the thinking department to buy WinZip, it was a good program 20 years ago but not now.

    @TuxmanXP - You of course are entitled to your opinion but when others feel differently it's not necessarily Trolling.

    Stopped using it many years ago, one reason the price, bought WinRAR and had free upgrades for live, unlike WinZip that initially promised the same, then went back on their word, big mistake, and then kept adding features making it bloatware.

    Just logging in to counter the troll below me. WinZip itself is still good software and it has interesting features for those who need them.
