Error Message when registering WinZip


this error indicates that you don't have the appropriate rights to save data in the folder indicated or save changes to a specific file in the folder. If you have encountered this error, please try the following:

Click on the Taskbar Start button

  1. the text box just above Start type: C:ProgramData
  2. Press the Enter key on the keyboard
  3. Delete In the WinZip folder  
  4. Open WinZip and enter your registration information

If deleting the WinZip folder does not work for you, you might try temporarily turning off the User Account Control (UAC) as follows and see whether that helps:
