I paid for a subscription, when I try to unzip something it wants a registration code, and I can't get the files onto this stupid interface. You've got to be kidding. Once again Microsoft gets involved and screws uo a great program

Trying to use this application is difficult. I've been using PC's for 30 years and have used zip since it was a command line application. This interface is TERRIBLE and trying to do anything with it seems impossible.

won't let me reload it because I already own it. Won't let me use it because eventhough I can sign into the app store it won't verivy the license I bought. I haven't been able to use it in a year. Very frustrated with this.

As far as I can tell this is a virus. Why else is it completely useless, tries to take my money, and won't let me uninstall it? As far as I can tell it doesn't exist anywhere other than when I want to NOT use this garbage. I used WinZip for decades, but I will NEVER use it again after this pathetic excuse for a program. PS: Why can't I give something 0 stars?
