7zip and word documents

  • Nobody/Anonymous


    I have installed 7zip in several XP machines, but whenever i try to open a .doc document within a zipped file, word lauches a warning message telling me the file or route are not valid.

    Neither, the zip nor the word documents are corrupt. This seems to be a problem with the route where 7zip is unzipping the temporal files so word can open it.

    Please help

      Try to change the location of TEMP directory.

        Dude, its over 100 machines on the network.

        *sigh* Guess I just didn't test 7zip enough before deploying. Thanks anyway.

      Just to let you know on version 3.13, I face this problem only when I open second *.doc file from a *.7z compressed folder. I never faced problem if I close first document and open second one later.

      on *.Zip compressed folder I never had any problem
