WinZip activation codes have only one use. They are a way to provide registration information to you. You enter your activation code, your name, and some additional information, and that is sent to the WinZip activation server. Registration information is created by the server using the information you provide and that is sent back to your computer. As soon as your activation code has been used it is disabled. It will not work again.
Registration information for a single user license includes the Registered to name and the Registration code.
|Once an activation code has been used to generate registration information, it is disabled and will not work again.
If you used your activation code already, even if you are not aware that it was successful, and then you try to use it again at a later time or or on a different day, you will be advised by the WinZip Activation server that The activation code has already been used.
Since the activation code has been used, you will need to enter your registration information into your WinZip application. If you do not have your registration information recorded, please see this Knowledge Base article (WinZip - What is my registration code?). At the top of the article there is a Quick Search feature where you can enter your email address. If your email address can be found by the server, a message containing your registration information will be sent automatically to that email address. If your email address cannot be found, you will be told this, you should fill in the Detailed Search form beneath the Quick Search, and you should submit that. Your form will be sent to Support and a service representative will use the information you supplied to search the registration database. Replies are sent to the email address you supply; please type carefully.
If you have any questions about this information please email Technical Support.
