WinZip did the right thing. I emailed them. Within a couple of hours I had my original WinZip9 key and a URL to download it.
Now that's neat. I might have been tempted to download winzip14, but
- There isn't much difference
- 14 is a LOT bigger than 9
- jZip and PeaZip and a lot of others work. And work well.
- 9 does it for me.
But how many other utilities and software bits on my PC can't I upgrade? And how many can I? Textpad, a very fine utility, is still allowing me to upgrade and I'm several major versions down the line.
