"Would not download"

I have no pros
Could not get it to download
"Nice "Bait and switch". Wish I could give ZERO stars..."
Version: WinZip 18
I guess it works pretty well.
Winzip's latest tactic, a classic "bait and switch", is to pop up a window when the user starts up their paid-for, fully licensed 14.0 version offering a "FREE update to licensed users to 14.5" .
But don't click the download link because if you do, they download a trial version of 17.5, install it, wiping out your existing winzip version. That wouldn't be so awful except the trial version they install expires after using it one time, then they demand you buy a new license for $40 or so.
Oh, and did you want to go back to 14.0? well, wait a day or so and they might respond to your email requesting your old install code and a download link - there's no phone support and their registration lookup function won't find the email address you had registered the previous version with, it least it didn't find mine.
Lame product, lame company, lame customer service.
Just say no. There are too many free, better and both better and free options.
