The latest beta of the powerful archive manager. Create and decompress RAR, ZIP and other files downloaded from the internet.

WinRAR is a powerful compression tool with many integrated additional functions to help you organize your compressed archives.

WinRAR puts you ahead of the crowd when it comes to compression. By consistently creating smaller archives, WinRAR is often faster than the competition. This will save you disc space, transmission costs AND valuable working time as well.

Features:

  • WinRAR supports all popular compression formats (RAR, ZIP, CAB, ARJ, LZH, ACE, TAR, GZip, UUE, ISO, BZIP2, Z and 7-Zip).
  • WinRAR is ideal for multimedia files. WinRAR automatically recognizes and selects the best compression method. The special compression algorithm compresses multimedia files, executables and object libraries particularly well.
  • WinRAR allows you to split archives into separate volumes easily, making it possible to save them on several disks for example.
  • WinRAR is also ideal, if you are sending data through the web. Its 128 bit password encryption and its authenticated signature technology will give you the peace of mind you have been looking for.
  • WinRAR is shareware, meaning you have the chance to thoroughly test it. The program can be used absolutely free of charge for 40 days!
  • WinRAR licenses are valid for all available language and platform versions. If you have purchased several licenses, you can even mix versions to meet your own personal needs.
  • WinRAR gives you all future Updates for free.

What's New:

  • WinRAR treats .txz archive extension as .tar.xz and opens .txz contents in a single step.
  • If you drag a file from another application to WinRAR holding Shift button, a file will be deleted after archiving. Previous versions ignored Shift state here.
  • WinRAR ignores "Turn PC off when done" option in case of read and write errors if user pressed Cancel in repeat read or repeat write dialogs.

Bugs fixed:

  • Archive comment is displayed also in empty ZIP archives. Previous versions did not display it if ZIP archive did not contain any files
  • Explorer window containing a temporary folder with unpacked file could be opened when attempting to view an archived file in a corrupt ZIP archive. File entry in a corrupt ZIP could have a wrong "hard drive" icon.
