WinZip Registration Instructions

Customers who purchase a multi-user license will receive an email confirmation after purchasing a license containing both a link to the WinZip distribution file and a link to your unique WinZip.wzmul registration file. This file contains registration information and a link to the WinZip web site so you can view the number of licenses assigned. To register your copy of WinZip:

  1. Download and install WinZip from the link provided in your order confirmation
  2. Download your unique registration file (WinZip.wzmul) from the link provided in your order confirmation
  3. Double-click the WinZip.wzmul file (or a shortcut to the file) to begin the registration process (WinZip MUST already be installed in order to register the product)
    • Alternatively, you can drag and drop it onto an open WinZip window, or right-click it in a folder window and choose Register WinZip
      Note: Dragging a WinZip.wzmul file onto an open WinZip window will not add the file to an archive, but instead will try to register the product.
    • Finally, you can manually place the WinZip.wzmul file in the WinZip subfolder in the Windows Common AppData folder. This folder contains application data for all users. A typical path for the WinZip.wzmul file is C:\ProgramData\WinZip. The presence of WinZip.wzmul in this folder will convert the evaluation version of WinZip to a registered version.
  4. The next time you run WinZip, the registration reminder screen will not be displayed

To install and use WinZip in a network environment, click here for more information. The evaluation version of WinZip is available from the WinZip Download Page.

WinZip Courier Registration Instructions

Instructions for WinZip E-Mail Companion are essentially the same as for WinZip Courier.

Customers who purchase a multi-user license will receive an email confirmation after purchasing a license. The email will contain a link to the WinZip Courier distribution file and a link to your unique WinZipEC.ecmul registration 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 file (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 a folder window and choose Register WinZip Courier from the shortcut menu
    • Finally, you can manually place the WinZipEC.ecmul file in the WinZipEC subfolder in the Windows Common AppData folder. This folder contains application data for all users. A typical path for the WinZipEC.ecmul file is C:\ProgramData\WinZipEC. The presence of WinZipEC.ecmul in this folder will convert the evaluation version of WinZip Courier to a registered version.

To install and use WinZip Courier in a network environment, click here for more information. The evaluation version of WinZip Courier is available from the
WinZip Courier Download Page.

WinZip Self-Extractor Registration Instructions

Customers who purchase a multi-user license will receive an email confirmation after purchasing a license containing both a link to the WinZip Self-Extractor distribution file and a link to your unique WinZipSE.semul registration file. To register your copy of WinZip Self-Extractor:

  1. Download and install WinZip Self-Extractor from the link provided in your order confirmation.
  2. Download your unique registration file (WinZipSE.semul) from the link provided in your order confirmation.
  3. Double-click the WinZipSE.semul file (or a shortcut to the file) and WinZip Self-Extractor will automatically be registered (WinZip Self-Extractor MUST already be installed in order to register the product).
    • Alternatively, you can right-click on WinZipSE.semul in Windows Explorer and choose Register WinZip Self-Extractor.
    • Finally, you can manually place the WinZipSE.semul file in the WinZipSE subfolder in the Windows Common App Data folder. The presence of WinZipSE.semul in this folder will convert the evaluation version of WinZip Self-Extractor to a registered version. However, if you are on Windows 98, the WinZipSE.semul file goes into the WinZip Self-Extractor folder.

The evaluation version of WinZip Self-Extractor is available from the
WinZip Self-Extractor Download Page.
