Each set of instructions below assumes you have installed the correct major version of the appropriate application. The instructions are specific to the latest versions, but will be similar for earlier versions. The registration information for one major version (such as WinZip 18) will not register another major version (such as WinZip 17).

Specifically for WinZip, if you have entered your name and code correctly, but you see a message saying Incomplete or incorrect information, open the appropriate applet in the Control Panel for uninstalling programs and check to see which version of WinZip is installed. If you find a different major version is installed, download and install the correct WinZip version.
