Free from winload.de.  You do have to sign up for their newsletter to get the license key.

I heard it is in German only. Can anyone confirm or deny?

Ja, it's in Deutsche.

However, I did see a link to an English version (http://dabdoo.wordpress.com/2010/01/20/free-download-ultimatezip-4-5/) – it has the key there, so I'm not sure if this is legit or breaches protocol. I have my doubts. Ashraf, if this is dodgy, please delete it pronto, ok. Thanks.

@phoenix_rising:  That second link you gave points to the same place as the original.

 


With a little searching I found this advice for changing most of it into English:

 

Browse to the install folder (default = c:\Progfram Files\UltimateZip)

Locate the file “german.lng”

Rename it to something else, e.g. “germanxx.lng”

Start UltimateZip and you will have most of the English interface.

The icon menu bar will still show the German titles, but holding your
mouse over them will give the English equivalents.

The installed right click and start menu items will still be in German,
but you could rename them with a little additional work.

 


@Ashraf:  If it isn't legit, then please remove it.  But I thought most winload.de promotions were legit as long as you signed up for their newsletter.

Well why go through all this trouble?  Is it even worth it?  How does this compare to 7zip or WinRar?

You got Pwnd

@Phoenix_rising: It is legit, np..

@Karen: The promo is 100% legit, no worries. And thanks for the input on how to make it mostly English.

@Pwnana: I am with you – why go through all the trouble when there is freeaware 7-zip.

I use WinRar, myself.  I just saw the freebie and thought I would post in case anyone wanted it.

According to their website, Ultimate Zip handles 7-zip files as well as other compressed formats, but I have no idea if it is any better.

Sorry about that, karen. Didn't look into it too deeply, as you can tell. And thanks for the rest of the advice on how to turn it into English.

@ Ashraf & Pwnana: Agreed. I was using 7-Zip and then changed to WinRAR when that promotion came out a while back. I'll stick with those two until and unless this one has some whiz-bang features that the others dont'. But given that its price tag is comparable with that of WinRAR, I doubt it. 22

No problem.  I thought it was legit, but it is always better to check anyway.

Ladies (et al),

Don't forget the FREE "donate-ware" IZARC, it does just about all needed (at least for me that is).

Get it from http://www.izarc.org/

There is also a portable version available for USB use if you want.

ZIP zippity do RAR….. Laugh LOL
