WinRAR is a 32-bit Windows version of RAR Archiver, the powerful archiver and archive manager. RAR files can usually compress content 8 to 15 percent more than ZIP or ARJ files. WinRAR's main features include strong general and multimedia compression, the ability to process of non-RAR archive formats, long filename support, programmable self-extracting archives (SFX), damaged-archive repair, authenticity verification, embedded file comments, and encryption. Unicode is supported in archive file names, allowing non-English file names to be handled painlessly.
Version 2.8 makes it easier to create your own RAR SFX-based installers, and features a new look, better security for protected archives, the ability to manipulate the parameters of many archives at once, and the ability to view a volume sequence as a single archive.
Note: In this trial download, the AV seal creation and error logging are disabled. A single user license is $35. It is recommended that you uninstall previous versions of WinRAR before installing version 2.8.
