Missing "Compressed (zipped) Folder" option from the <Send To> options RRS feed

  • Question

  • The "Compressed (zipped) Folder" option from the <Send To> options is missing on my computer. I have just installed a 3rd party ZIP program, WinZip, and would like to enable the option of "compressed (zipped folder)"option from the <Send To> option.


     I'm trying to perform the same "repair"--restore the Send to "compressed" (zip) file option on my explorer file options. When I try to register the zipflder.dll I get a registry error that zipfldr.dll was loaded but the entry-point DllRegisterServer was not found. Make sure that zipfldr.dll is a valid OCX or DLL and try again.


    Pls advice and thanks in advance
