Register WinZip Courier

This section answers the following questions:

Why do I have to register WinZip Courier?

WinZip Courier is not free software. Subject to the terms of the WinZip Courier Evaluation License, you are licensed by WinZip Computing, S.L. ("WinZip Computing") to use for evaluation purposes only one (1) copy of WinZip Courier, on one (1) computer or workstation, without charge, for a period of 45 days after you first install WinZip Courier on any computer or workstation. If you want to use this software after the 45-day evaluation period, you must acquire from WinZip Computing, for a fee, a single-user license or multi-user license for WinZip Courier. Refer to Ordering Information for information about license pricing, multi-user licensing, and ordering options. Use of WinZip Courier after the expiration of the 45-day evaluation period without acquiring such a license from WinZip Computing is outside the scope of the Evaluation License and a violation of U.S. and international copyright laws.

How to purchase your WinZip Courier License

Refer to Ordering Information for information about pricing, multi-user licensing and ordering options.

How do I convert from an evaluation version to a registered version of WinZip Courier?

Single-user with a registration code

Single-user license owners who have been issued a registration code can convert the evaluation version of WinZip Courier to a registered version as follows:

  1. Install WinZip E-Mail Courier.
  2. In Outlook 2010, select WinZip Courier Options from the File menu and click on Register in the WinZip Courier Options dialog. For Outlook 2003/2007, select Options from the Tools menu and choose Register from the WinZip Courier menu.
  3. Enter your name and registration code exactly as they appear on your registration acknowledgment e-mail or the back of the WinZip Courier CD case and click OK.

Single-user with an activation code

If your WinZip Courier license was not purchased directly from WinZip, but instead from an authorized reseller, you will have been issued an activation code rather than a registration code.

Note: activation requires an active Internet connection. If you are not already connected when you click the OK button, WinZip Courier will initiate your default connection before completing the activation process.

Single-user license owners who have been issued an activation code can convert the evaluation version of WinZip Courier to a registered version as follows:

  1. Install WinZip Courier.
  2. In Outlook 2010, select WinZip Courier Options from the File menu and click on Register in the WinZip Courier Options dialog. For Outlook 2003/2007, select Options from the Tools menu and choose Register from the WinZip Courier menu.
  3. Enter your name and activation code exactly as they appear on your registration acknowledgment e-mail and click OK.
  4. WinZip Courier will verify the activation code, issue a registration code based upon the name or e-mail address you entered, and automatically register your copy of WinZip Courier.
  5. A confirmation e-mail, containing the registration information, will also be sent to the e-mail address entered.
Important: Single-user activation codes can only be used once. Keep your registration code in a safe place in case you need to reinstall WinZip Courier.
 

Multi-user registration

As a multi-user customer, you will receive an e-mail confirmation after purchasing a license. The e-mail will contain a link to the WinZip Courier distribution file and a link to your unique WinZipEC.ecmul file. To register your copy of WinZip Courier:

  1. Download and install WinZip Courier from the link provided in your order confirmation.
  2. Download your unique registration key (WinZipEC.ecmul) from the link provided in your order confirmation.
  3. Double-click the WinZipEC.ecmul file (or a shortcut to the file) and WinZip Courier will automatically be registered (WinZip Courier MUST already be installed in order to register the product). Alternatively, you can right-click the file in Windows Explorer and choose Register WinZip Courier from the shortcut menu.

Note: if you ordered a CD, customized for your organization, simply install WinZip Courier directly from the CD. No additional steps are required to register.
