    I have installed Vista x64 and 7-Zip 4.58 and Outlook 2007 (which is default mail handler)
    When I right click on a file and click on "Send to -> Mail Recipient", OL2007 opens with
    the file attached.

    When I right click a file and click on 7-Zip -> "Compress to xxx.7z and email", then
    Windows Mail opens.

    I have checked everything twice and it's not working.

      I don't know why. Do you have another external applications in menu? If so, try to disable them.
      Can somebody confirm that problem with Outlook 2007 and without Outlook 2007?

      I'm using 64bit of 7z. I still try to figure out what's wrong.
      Very strange.

      I have tried WinRAR 3.71 and it works as expected. But the context menu is 32bit.

      Can you post the CreateProcessW parameters you send?
      I've looked at the source code but I don't know C++.
      When you give me the parameters, I could try to send the same with C#

      I've made some more tests. I have both 7z x32 and x64 in two different folders on my pc

      x32 with the following command opens Outlook:
      7z a archive.7z -seml test.txt

      x64 with the same command opens Windows Mail:
      7z a archive.7z -seml test.txt

        Outlook 32 bit,Windows Mail -64 bit

         
    • I can confirm that compress and email now works on x32 of both Windows XP and Vista!  Thanks for fixing this..

      If this is still broken on x64, can you check if the proper registry entries are in the wow64 branch ?

      regards,
