Download and install Zip Pro 2
Ashampoo unveils a 10 day trial for free. You can get the setup from official sources.
Download Zip Pro 2 here. This is a direct link.
The installation and setup is very basic, and for that reason, I won’t cover step by step. Any doubt, leave a comment.
Note: Perhaps, if you have Zip Pro installed, it’s not required to uninstall it, even if trial expired.
In order to activate Zip Pro, you need to download a *.DLL file. You must move the file to Zip Pro 2 location.
To download the file, click on the button below. The file is compressed and you need WinRAR or 7-Zip to extract the file. You can use any other euivelent tools.
- Browse to Zip Pro files. The program it’s a 32-bit software. Therefore, by default, for x64 system types browse to C:\Program Files (x86)\Ashampoo\Ashampoo ZIP Pro 2. However, if you are running a x86 system type, go to C:\Program Files\Ashampoo\Ashampoo ZIP Pro 2.
- Find the file ash_inet2.dll and rename it for (for example), ash_inet2.dll.BAK. This is just a backup.
- Copy the modified file I provided above, and Paste it there.
- At the end, you should have the original backup file (1), and the modified file (2), as shown on image.
That’s it! It was easy, right? 🙂
Run Zip Pro. If the program, at start up, doesn’t show any dialog about purchasing or extending trial, that means the program is activated!
