601 Extract All from ZIP archive fails [SOLVED]

#1 Post by Scott_Y » 08.10.2012, 23:32

If I right-click on a zip archive and select "Extract All..." the extraction fails.
Instead, "Extract Compressed (Zipped) Folders" appears on the taskbar but has no function.
I can extract successfully from the 7-Zip menu. (Win7-64).

Bump...
This is still a problem in 633 (and previous versions).

Running "Extract all ..." on a zip file from the FC right-click context menu produces a minimized program icon and an entry on the taskbar named "Extract Compressed (Zipped) Folders." But that has no function, does not run, and does not extract the files.

However, extract via the 7-Zip menu does extract successfully from the zip file. [EDIT: that is, FC right-click context menu > 7-Zip > Extract]

It works here on Vista 32 bit, with dialog.

I'm running FC v633 and Windows 7 sp1 and I get the same problem Scott_Y gets.

That's helpful wrbrid; thanks.
Are you using Win 7 32 bit or 64 bit?

64 bit. I thought FC XE was only for 64 bit. I should try FC XE on my 32 bit XP, I'm currently running 2009b on that one.

wrbird and I both experienced this problem on Win7 64 bit, whereas Dreamer didn't have a problem on Vista 32 bit. Perhaps that is relevant.

It's a 32-bit program (note in Win7 that it installs in Program Files x86) but provides the option to access the 64-bit Windows context menu.

Thanks for the input. I was wondering why it installed in the (x86) folder. Maybe we're experiencing this problem because we both live in CO, LOL:)

Yeah, I noticed you live in Colorado too 8)
A program I use actually had a bad bug caused by a time-zone issue (flash cards distributed in 24 hour periods), so that was indeed related to where a user lived. But probably not significant for this FC problem :wink:
