We recommend using the latest build of WinZip since it makes it easier than ever to work with Zip files (.zip or .zipx) and other popular archive formats (including .rar, .7z, .bz2, and many others).
For more details and other new features, please visit the WinZip product page.
If you are registered for an earlier major version of WinZip and would rather not upgrade to WinZip 25.0 at this time you can download and install the latest build of your version of WinZip from the Alternative Download Links page. A link to Legacy Download Links near the bottom of this page is available for even older versions.
The files you download from these two pages will install the latest build for each WinZip version. Earlier builds are not distributed as the latest builds will include operational fixes and/or security fixes for the earlier builds. You can check what build you have installed in the About WinZip dialog. For your reference, the latest build numbers for each version of WinZip, WinZip for Mac, and WinZip Courier are listed below.
WinZip (for PC)
WinZip (for Mac)
- Only the latest builds are distributed.
- A registration issued for an earlier build of a version will work with the latest build of that major version.
Example: A WinZip 22.0 registration will work with WinZip 22.5.
- Registrations issued for an earlier major version will not work in a later major version.
Example: WinZip 25 registration code will not register WinZip 26 or WinZip 27.
- Exception: WinZip 9.0 SR-1 can be used with any registration prior to and up to WinZip 9.
