Oct 28, 2022 · shares Here’s everything about buying WinRAR: You can get WinRAR for free, completely legally, and the free version is perfectly identical to the paid version. Paying is only really necessary if you want to use the software for commercial purposes.
This can be done in 2 simple steps: Double-click on the file and it will be displayed in WinRAR. You can then select which files or folders you want to extract. Click the "Extract To" icon at the top of the WinRAR window, choose the destination folder (the folder where you want to store the RAR file) and click OK.
Nov 17, 2021 · 2. The software is distributed as try before you buy. This means that anyone may use the software during a test period of a maximum of 40 days at no charge. Following this test period, the user must purchase a license to continue using the software. But we all know, it does not work that way.

To answer the question it's 'free' for marketing reasons when everyone is already familiar with it from home usage businesses can buy it knowing they won't have to spend money training their staff on it's usage.

Doesn't matter if the users can't use it or are used to WinRar. Then it's probably cheaper to shell out a few € and buy a WinRar license than to waste IT manhours to train people using 7zip. WinRar costs peanuts (<20€ if you have a few dozen users) and gives you a lifetime license.

Since WinRAR has an almost total monopoly in its market (yeah 7zip exists as well, but it doesn't work well as a corporate tool, just as a personal tool) it means every business will be buying a huge amount of licenses to make sure it can be used on every computer in their system, and that's where WinRAR makes its money. So...
Private users have no reason to, but companies do need to buy a license or else they are violating the software terms and might be open to a lawsuit. That said, they can easily go to a free alternative such as 7-zip. 3 Reply Share ReportSave level 1 7 days ago Why would you give money to a musician if you liked their song? 2 Reply
797 Very_Good_Opinion • 5 yr. ago Yes, their main patent ensures that other programs cannot compress files into rar . However, non-profit programs are allowed to decompress rar files and I don't have any data but I would imagine that constitutes a large amount of rar usage.
3 [deleted] • 13 yr. ago [removed] ungood • 13 yr. ago Dammit, why would they encode the license to the software that is used to decode said license. Crazy! mlk • 13 yr. ago This is almost as stupid as MSDNAA requiring Windows to download Windows.

So don't use .rar's in your business environment. And I don't see anything in the unRAR license against business use, only in the full WinRAR license. So yeah, any business that pays for access to a single locked format when there are free and open alternatives is stupid.
