Windows vista built in zip fonctionality RRS feed

  • Question


    Hi my company has recently deployed windows vista. I have had a few employees here that have had problems with certain zip files. When they click on it they just see an empty folder and if they right click and extract they receive a zip format invalid error. i contacted the company that sent the zip files to see which software they use to make them. Turns out it is winzip. Has anyone else had similar problems with the builtin zip fonctionality of vista? i havent been able to find any information online about the problem.

  • I'm having the exact same problem. The files are large, about 4 GB and my IT guy said that's why but it makes no sense to me. I Tried smaller files and it still doesn't work. I opened tickets with help desk after help desk and their only solution is to reinstall the OS! I don't even want this OS, this is the last in a string of operational problems with Vista. I'm at the point that I'm petitioning my division to "down-grade" to XP or move to Linux.
