Greetings all! I see that the ghacks site has instructions on how to get a hold of a full version of WinRar 3.80. The link is: http://www.ghacks.net/2010/02/…..ion-offer/
If you have trouble connecting to the site, use a suitable proxy. Personally, I use 7 Zip, but I am downloading this (via a German proxy) just to check out if it has anything that outdoes the tried and true 7 Zip.
This offer is not available in my country.
Hi Sandeep. You just need to go through a German proxy such as http://www.proxy-service.de/ or Google for a list of German proxies. Or if you have Firefox, you can use the proxy add-on and go directly to it that way.
Hi Ozzie I could download it in India but when after that I tried to register it it says "This Offer is not available in your country"
I am not conceptually very expert at how to go through a German proxy such as http://www.proxy-service.de/ or how to use a Firefox addon to go directly to itThis is a first time experience for me.I'll pick it up fast.
While I am not expert I am not daunted either if I get just a little help from you please.
I am on Firefox 3.5.7, on broadband. There is no router involved (I only have a modem) & this is a single machine as such.When I check my apps (e.g. download accelerator plus) etc I notice that I do not use any proxy at all.
Query – I went to get addons in Firefox in tools & searched for addons called Proxy. I found several including one called QuickProxy developed by Ozzie!
1)Is that you Ozzie?
2)Is QuickProxy the addon you are referring to? 3)Can I use this genre of plugins if I do not have a proxy?
4)If I can could I switch back to my no-proxy-at-all profile after I get the WinRar registration?
Grateful for your kind help & the teeniest weeniest bit of handholding
Hi Ramesh! Happy to hold your hand, my friend! And no, I am not the"Quick Proxy Ozzie" – lol! I wish I were that tech savvy! I actually find it easier to just call up a proxy page such as the one listed above (http://www.proxy-service.de/) and then go through it rather than configuring proxies myself. Using that link above, I had no trouble d/l-ing or installing. I think this might be the best way for you. Forget the add-ons and plug-ins. With such proxy addresses, you just copy and paste the URL and click and you're there. Give it a try and let us know what happens, ok.

Hi Ozzie! I went all the way upto Abschicken & even got some German reply which I could not understand.Does it take long for the email reply from them to come to me?I tried on indiatimes.com & then on yahoo.com. Puzzled & waiting!
When in doubt, I turn to Google translate. But this might help – some instructions from posters on raymond.cc's forum (thank you to those people who posted):
"You will get an e-mail with the download link for the license key . Press the link and in the new opened page press ''Download des Lizenzschlüssels'' ."
"Example reg key link in email: Code:
Code: Download WinRar 3.80 English
"Before you open the program extract from
the archive the ''rarreg.key'' in your installation folder
( C: Program Files WinRAR ) ."
"You may also find WinRar 3.80 in english here
Hope this helps!

@ Conno9: LOL! Hey, thank the people who first found them. I'm just passing on what they found (and that is only my as a result of my seemlingly endless quest for good study-related programs and project-management related software). But I'm glad you're happy!
