Such a thing as 'free' winzip' download?

Such a thing as 'free' winzip' download? or are all free downloads just a trial version? If so, are you able to recommend a website that sells the programme at a reasonable price? I require 'winzip' to compress work for an upcoming website design course at polytech. They stipulate using 'winzip'
Cheers!

Who the heck still uses winzip? Use WinRar instead, way better & can handle most compression formats, including 7zip. Only problem is it's not free either.

Wow, quick replies! Thanks guys! So you don't think Tech. will reject my work if not sent using 'winzip' as stipulated?

'They' need to be brought into the present, winrar is better, if 'they stipulate' winzip who do 'they reckon has to pay for it?,..

No they won't If you go with 7Zip, just be aware that the default type is 7Z which they will reject. Change the first one you do to ZIP - it will default to that next time you use it.

They will only accept .zip format, doesn't mean you can't use any other application capable of compressing to zip format. Use 7zip since it's free.

Ok thanks heaps away to download 7zip. Thanks again all :-)

i try to use .zip for everything, most people can deal with it.

7zip is best I think 7zip is better than winrar, and to top it off, it is free. You may have specific needs that make winrar better for you, but 7zip is best for most people.
