    1st. I would like to thank Ms. Angela Weiske of WinRAR Marketing Team for giving me the opportunity to hold a 10 licenses of WinRAR contest here at MDL worth ($33.35 each).

    The WinRAR Version 5.20 reviewed by Mr.X can be read here .

    The final version of WinRAR 5.20 is ready for download!

    New feature improvements for Windows User Account Control and further enhancements in usability and compatibility in the new version.
    Berlin, 2nd December 2014 – win.rar GmbH and RARLAB.COM are pleased to announce the final release of WinRAR 5.20. The main focus for the new release has been on usability and compatibility improvements, offering the customer the best solution to archive, compress and secure their personal data.

    "By providing regular updates, we are achieving high compatibility, up-to-dateness, stability and liability of our software. With the latest version we have further improved the general handling of WinRAR and the usability of alternative archiving formats", says Öncül Kaya, Managing Director of win.rar GmbH.

    Enhanced Usability

    A completely new feature allows using the WinRAR.ini file instead of the registry to store WinRAR settings. This will be extremely helpful if users want to install WinRAR to removable media, such as a USB flash drive in order to run it on different computers. Detailed information can be found within the WinRAR help section at "Configuration settings"/"WinRAR.ini file".

    Furthermore, the "Open with WinRAR" command is now available within Windows context menus for all archive formats supported by WinRAR. It can be turned off with the "Open with WinRAR (for usual archives)" option in the WinRAR "Settings/Integration/Context menu items..." dialogue.

    The latest version of WinRAR 5.20 offers the possibility to drag files within Explorer with your right mouse button, drop them to a folder and select WinRAR archiving commands inside context menu to create an archive with these files in the destination folders. This feature helps users to compress and secure files .

    WinRAR has been better adapted for Windows User Account Control (UAC). If Windows User Account Control prevents extracting or archiving commands to create files in system protected folders, WinRAR attempts to start another copy with administrator privileges to complete the operation.

    Enhanced Compatibility

    In addition to the RAR-format, WinRAR also supports many other archiving formats, giving the user the utmost flexibility to work with different formats. XZ compression algorithm has been added to extraction support of ZIP and ZIPX archives to ensure enhanced compatibility.
    All information on the improvements of WinRAR 5.20 can be found here: http://www.win-rar.com/whatsnew.html.

    A useful tip for all Windows-64-bit users: It is highly recommended to install the WinRAR 64-bit version. It is faster and offers the best available integration. WinRAR’s compression speed in Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 and on any multi-core-system has been increased considerably.

    WinRAR 5.20 32-bit can be downloaded at: http://www.win-rar.com/fileadmin/winrar-versions/winrar/wrar520.exe

    WinRAR 5.20 64-bit can be downloaded at: http://win-rar.com/fileadmin/winrar-versions/winrar/winrar-x64-520.exe

    WinRAR is available in more than 40 different languages and is compatible with Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and 8.1. For all Android users the RAR for Android App is available on Google Play. The command line version of WinRAR is also available for Linux, FreeBSD and MAC OS X.

    About WinRAR:
    WinRAR is the 32-bit and 64-bit Windows version of the RAR Archiver, the powerful archiver and archive manager. RAR files can, in most cases, compress content up to 30 percent more effectively than ZIP files. The most notable functions of WinRAR include very powerful document and multimedia file compression, file encryption, processing of other archive formats, programmable self-extracting (SFX) archives, damaged archive repair and Unicode support.

    About win.rar GmbH:
