    Is it me or is there a problem with it? My usual mode d'emploi is to right
    click on the file and up pops a menu of which 'add to Winzip' is a choice.
    No choice atm though:(

    Which version of Win7 are you running - x32 or x64?

    You can get Peazip from Sourceforge.net in 64 bit version.

    Or 7zip, also free. It works well enough that I don't bother with anything
    else, anymore.

    WinZip was bought by Corel, never a good sign.

    I haven't had any interest in WinZip for years...there are more than enough
    good freeware compression progs out there.

    Hmmm....I have several excellent Corel progs on my system, with no sign of
    death imminent! I used to use WordPerfect exclusively, but since I have to
    know and use MS Office at work, I've been using whatever they've got current
    at work, at home, too. At least I don't have to pay MS for it, anyway.

    You may be OK for an upgrade to WinZip 14 ?

    http://www.winzip.com/upgrade.htm
    "The current version of WinZip has been tested on each of the Windows
    operating systems that it supports. This includes 64bit versions when
    applicable. Supported operating systems are Windows 2000, Windows XP,
    Windows Vista, Windows 7 and the server versions that are related to each"

    Corel murdered my favorite photo editing program, PaintShop Pro. Why
    does a company spend money to buy a good system and then spend a bunch
    more to destroy it?

    I use IZArc, another freebie, and am happy with it. I must say, though,
    that I use it only for unZipping.

    Corel, in turn, is owned by Vector Capital, who are only interested in
    making money, they don't care a toot about the program, which is very
    evident :-(
    It is said that 60 million users around the world use Paint Shop Pro, but
    Vector Capital is too dumb to bother with them.
    Very sad.
    Xara had the good sense to pull out of the deal with Corel, as Corel didn't
    touch the program for 3 years.

    Yep . . . if I'm McDonalds, I might want to buy up the local burger
    joints near mine and close them. Sure, it costs money, but then I own
    the market.
