WinRAR displays "evaluation copy" despite installing license.

Post by The_gh0stm4n on Mon 20 Jul 2015, 16:01

Hello,


Have you downloaded and installed one of the WinRAR versions (either 4.20 or the recent 5.21) from this site here ? If so, you might encounter the problem that even after installing the licence with the included keygen, the program still shows up as a trial version - visible from the notice "evaluation copy" in the main program window at the top.

At first, make sure to temporarily turn off your anti-virus program. And just to be safe, also make sure to de-activate Windows defender for the moment. See these screenshots how:












Finally, right-click on the keygen.exe that is included in the download and choose Run as Administrator (if you are running Windows Vista or a later OS). Now click on "Save license". When prompted, navigate to the inside of the install folder of WinRAR, typically this is C:\Program files\WinRAR.

After that, the program should be activated, and you're good to go. Smile

Hi,

From experience I can tell you that if your license has already expired and you try to activate it, it might not work.
Just uninstall WinRAR completely, restart your PC and then install WinRAR and immediately do the license. That also ought to work. Smile
