for Win32 (from Settings > Ease of Access > High contrast).

darlk mode methods, W10+ and pre-Windows 10:
- on Windows 10 or newer system it is possible to
run PaZip in dark mode either setting Dark mode in Personalization, or
setting an Hig contrast theme. The first method is recommended for best
visual result, lte second method has the advantage to set all Win32
apps in dark mode at once.

install PeaZip using WINGET
As alternative, PeaZip is also available through new Microsoft Windows'
package manager winget
- PeaZip can be installed running "winget install -e peazip" command;
-e parameters searches for exact match excluding extra applications
erroneously matching on plain "winget install peazip" command
- "winget show
-e peazip" displays information for the last available version in
package management system
With some versions of winget PeaZip can be installed only
running winget as administrator, due a known winget
install bug applying to various software packages.
Windows 64 bit download notes
Please note that
on current version of Microsoft
packages of PeaZip (likewise many
other software packages) may be reported as possibly harmful software.
The only solution for this issue is to proceed with installation anyway
(with "more info" or other version-specific links in SmartScreen) and
possibly to help fighting false positives reporting the software as
safe to Microsoft.
SmartScreen is a "reputation based" filter solely based on
popularity of a package, and its
rating is not presently influenced by quality factors as the software
being published on a safe domain
(including Microsoft-own ones like GitHub), supported by reputable package managers
(including Microsoft winget) and reported
safe by antivirus (including Microsoft ones...).
PeaZip 64 bit archive manager utility is optimized for x86-64

The application is fully functional, without any limitation: it does
not require product key / serial number / password, it has no

requires a full featured Windows system supporting Win32 x86-64 bit
API, like most of the current Windows 10 systems, it does not run on
systems limited to Metro / RT / Modern / UWP / Universal APIs - this is
likely less than a problem now Microsoft is finally bringing full
x86-64 emulation to Windows on ARM.
|Please be advised that PeaZip MSIX it is
published on Microsoft Store, but instead Microsoft Store (which in
theory should host only applications that undergo a thorough validation
process, and be closely monitored) hosted and is
still hosting - notwithstanding multiple reports - various scam apps
using PeaZip's name and logo, not preserving license files as required
by LGPL3 license, and hijacking users to third party domains not
connected in any way with PeaZip project: you are
strongly advised to avoid those apps!
