Updates (WinZip Options)

Select the Updates tab from the WinZip® Options Window to control these options:

Check for Updates

  • Check automatically every - Specifies that you want WinZip to automatically check for the availability of a new final or service release of WinZip. Use the combo box to specify how frequently you want WinZip to check; for example, choose "week" if you'd like WinZip to automatically check for an update once a week. After the time period has passed, WinZip will check to see if an update is available and notify you.
  • Ask before checking, once a week - Approximately every week, WinZip will ask if you would like to check for the availability of an update.
  • Do not check for updates - WinZip will not check for updates automatically or ask if you would like to do so. You can always check for updates manually by choosing Check for Update from the Help menu, by clicking Check for Update from the WinZip About box, or by returning to the Configuration window and clicking Check for Update Now.
  • Check for Update Now - Click this button to have WinZip check for the availability of an update now. WinZip will check for an update and display a notification window telling you whether or not one is available.

Note: WinZip does not transmit any personally identifiable information during the Check for Update process. For further information, please see the WinZip web site.
