You don't really need a GPO to deploy Winzip.
Just install it to a network share then create a login script as follows:
if exist "c:\program files\winzip\*" goto Done
The only other thing you may want to do as a startup script within a GPO is
to create a shortcut in the All Users folder (copy it from a shared location)
as, by default, Winzip only creates it for the current user.
