Can't open zip-archives by doubleclicking

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    I use the plugin to associate all archiv types with 7zip. That works fine with the most archive types. Only the zip format doesn't work: zip-files have no file icon (only the windows icon for unknown files types), by doubleclicking on zip-files the dialog for choosing a program appears and so. (context menu entries work)

    When I check zip in the options dialog of the plugin and close with OK, there are no changes. When I open the dialog a second time, zip is unchecked.

    I guess this has to do the Windows XP zip engine (I deactivated it), but I don't know what's the problem.

      I got the same problem with another file type (png or jpeg, I don't remember).
      To solve the problem, I had to manually clean up the windows registry.
      There's probably another solve; and of course, I suggest not to meddle with the registry unless you know exactly what you're doing...

      (may be you can use some registry cleaning program)
