Note: Unless specifically stated otherwise in this article, WinTools Ultimate Edition has not been tested or reviewed by dotTech (aside from checking to make sure this promotion is valid). Please do not take this post as an endorsement/rejection or review of the program. This article is simply to inform about the availability of this program as a freebie; nothing more, nothing less.

  • Visit the promotion page and click on Vollversion jetzt herunterladen >>:

Note this promotion is a German promotion, but I will show you how to turn the program into English.

  • Clicking on Vollversion jetzt herunterladen >> will bring you to a Pro.de registration page where you have to fill out a short form:

If you don’t understand German, here is a rough translation:

  • Once you have submitted the registration form, check the inbox of the e-mail address you registered with. Look for an e-mail from Pro.de (aktion@pro.de) with the subject of Aktion PC Praxis Wintools Ultimate Edition?. In the e-mail there is a link you need to follow to confirm your registration:

  • Once you have confirmed your registration, wait for an e-mail from Pro.de (aktion@pro.de) with the subject of Produktschlüssel für Wintools Ultimate Edition? (if you don’t receive the e-mail instantly, be patient – it took me almost an hour to get it). In the e-mail you will find your registration code and a download link:

  • Download and install WinTools Ultimate Edition.
  • After installation, run WinTools Ultimate Edition and register it with the registration code you received via e-mail:

  • After you have registered WinTools Ultimate Edition, unless you understand German, you are not done yet – you still need to change the program to English (or any of the other languages that are supported by WinTools Ultimate Edition). To do this, go to the Lang folder in your WinTools installation folder (by default it should be C:\Program Files\Godlike Developers\WinTools.net Ultimate\Lang). In the folder, delete default.lng and rename english.lng to default.lng:

If you prefer Arabic, Chinese, French, Croatian, Italian, Korean, Dutch, Russian, Spanish, or Ukranian over English, you can apply the same concept to their respective language files.

  • Done – enjoy!

If you have any trouble getting WinTools Ultimate Edition for free, post below and other dotTechies or I will try to help.

    @DJ: Many people have asked me to review freebies. However, unless I have already reviewed the freebie in the past (in which case I will always provide a link to the review) I don’t review freebies and this is why:

    1) Many freebies posted on dotTech are time-sensitive. Reviews take a lot of time to write. By the time I would write a review on a freebie, the freebie may not be available anymore. In other words, reviews would cause a delay in posting about freebies.
    2) Reviews take time, so if I were to review all freebies I post about I would be posting about much less freebies. In other words, reviews would cause a decrease in frequency in freebies.

    Of course there is one more reason why I don’t formally review freebies: Reviews on freebies -> Less freebies being posted -> Less articles being written -> Less visits to dotTech. So, yes, there is also a selfish reason on my part.

    Because of all the above reasons, I prefer to simply post about freebies and rely on community feedback as to the value (or lack thereof) of a particular product. And so far this method is working out pretty well; I find it to be a nice balance between quality of articles and quantity of articles and dotTechies appreciate the freebies that they learn about.

    That said, though, there are always two things you can count on about freebies:

    1) The freebie is actually valid. We always check for validity before posting.
    2) The freebie is non-malicious. We always check to make sure freebie doesn’t contain any malware; to the best of our ability, of course.

    Your review of the program would have been greatly appreciated, Ashraf! I’m sure everyone else loves your reviews as much as I do so maybe in the future, when you are offering a freebie, you should do your usual review as well so all of us (including yourself ;) know if the program is worth installing in the first place.

    Glad to see you are back though!
    :)

    Everything worked great – even changing the language! Thanks. This site gets better everyday.
    As for this vs Ccleaner. I suggest having both in your Tools folder. The shows your system specs (even live stats like RAM and CPU usage…paging file and gives shortcuts to Windows tools.

    @Daniel: Thanks. I knew “Nederlands” must stand for something else but I wrote up this post in the middle of the night and woke up early to finish so I didn’t have a chance to Google it and find out.

    @KHamm: Good advice; always be careful with such software.

    @David Roper: Glad to see it worked for you.

    @charles tunis: Pro.de? Pro.de is fairly safe as far as I am concerned. It is a legit German software retailer.

    @Madhamish: You are welcome!

    @MSGanc: I don’t know about anyone else, and while WinTools may have more tools that CCleaner, I always stick to CCleaner.

    @Laz: I am sorry but what do you mean by “I still haven’t seen any difference in what does ????????????????????????”?

    @William Olmstead: I am sorry I didn’t see any information indicating the registry cleaner was killed in this freebie. I have updated the post to reflect this.

    @Frank D: I am not sure what is wrong but really this program isn’t that unique to waste your time trying to figure out how to get it to work.

    @KHamm: Apparently the registry cleaner doesn’t work in this version. I have updated the post to reflect this.

    @Sammo: Thanks for the feedback. I have updated the post to reflect this.

    I used Iobit’s free Advanced System Care to whittle down any registry problems to zero. Then tried this prog. It says it has a scan registry tool under WinTools. I tried that and couldn’t get it to work. So… I don’t know if this prog does anything with the registry to “clean” or optimize it or not. The Help file doesn’t help either in this case.

    Everything from downloading to getting the registration code went well in Windows 7 Home Premium. However, when I try to run the program (by pressing the “Weiter” button) — two reinstalls and 6 or 8 retries — the program window appears for about 1/2 second and then a WinTool.net message pops up saying “A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.” Of course, there is never a solution available. The only option is to “Close program.” I also tried running as Administrator and in compatibility for Windows XP, but neither works. Any thoughts? If not, this program is scrap.

    I still haven’t seen any difference in what does ????????????????????????
    It didn’t seem to find any errors in registry . Just a whole bunch of tools.
    Down load was easy no problem . Can anyone tell me whats the difference between this any other tools /

  8. MSGanc

    Any thoughts on this versus CCleaner (safety, feature, and performancewise)? I’m a big fan of CCleaner, but always looking to expand my tool set.
    (I’m using Win 7 64 bit, but would certainly be interested in general comments as well.)
    Thanks very much!

    Love it. Your instructions were very clear to me. English I have. This looks like it has every tool I would ever need. Took maybe 3 minutes to “talk” to Germany and back. Rather quick I would say.

    Win 7 liked it, FYI.

    I got the e-mail link and clicked on it. Nothing. I’m using gmail. However, I was able to right click on the link, look at the properties, and copy/paste the address into a browser window and it worked fine that way. During install, there are several buttons to click. Should be obvious how it works, but it took me a try or 2 since I don’t speak German. Otherwise, it was a pretty easy install. I’ve used other versions of this soft and it works pretty well. As per all of these softs, PLEASE be careful since they can truly screw up your system if you’re NOT careful. As I found out recently, if you mess with Acrobat Pro carelessly using one of these, you can spend a couple of days trying to pull the rest off your system and reinstall.
