It just comes up with that--no error messages?

It's compatible with your OS so it should work. Was it previously working OK or is this a new install? If it was working before you might uninstall and then reinstall it.

You might want to try a newer version. Here's 15.5:

Newer versions than 15.5 on that page appear to just be installers and not the full version.

✔ Best Answer
What do you mean it comes up with 'C:\Program\WinZip\WxWFR64.dll'? Is the program saying it is missing the .dll file? If so you can download it here:

http://www.dll-files.com/

Just search for the .dll file and download the .zip. Unzip it (windows can decompress .zip files, you won't need WinZip) and paste the .dll into the folder that it needs to be in.

Don't run the DLL Fixer, it'll just screw it up more.

Have you tried just uninstalling and reinstalling WinZip?

Windows 7 has some zip/ unzip capability natively. If that is not good enough then there are many free programs that work with a wide veriety of compressed formats. I use 7-zip myself.

Did you purchase WinZip?

If not, and you just wanted, excellent, free software; 7-zip beats the pants off all others.
Small, light, fast, simple to use - and did I mention it was free? ;o)
