A long time ago, someone saw a need for this tool (XP only)

Windows-XP-ZIP-Support-Control

I now see the need for a companion tool for Vista and Win7.
What do you think?

Here are the details on how this is done in Vista/Win7.

might be an overkill but i think "Ultimate Windows Tweaker" has an option for this.

Thanks. I took a look and I couldn't find it in there.
Yes, for what I'm looking for it's definitely overkill.

I just wrote an article at Techie-Buzz and I'd love to be able to follow it up with how easy it is to request and get cool little tools like this at DC.

Best wishes and thanks for the recommendation.

Will _attachment removed_ do?
_attachment removed_

[ edit ] (Does the same reg tweak work in Win7?) If so, I'll add support for it.

That's what I was looking for. I see that it works nicely in XP. I am unable to test it in Vista or Win7 yet. I'm working on that and hope to have Win7 running soon.

Can we get someone to try it in Vista or Win7 for us and post the results here?

Thanks so much Scancode. I hope it wasn't too much trouble and that you enjoyed the challenge.

Crap! There's a problem with permissions under 7 and I assume Vista :|
Writing a fix at the moment smiley

Seems I choked on this coding snack Cry

Here's the NSIS sourcecode * ZipTool 2.rar (2.63 KB - downloaded 261 times.) if anyone wants to try/debug/play tetris on it.

Hi Scancode,

Using a Nullsoft installer for this was a perfectly great idea. Perhaps it just needs to have the proper access.
Would this work?
http://vistasupport.mvps..../run_as_administrator.htm

I also found this:
Quote
This plug-in attempts to work around UAC installation problems on Vista. This plug-in allows your installer to operate with a user level process and an admin level process. This allows you to accomplish things that would otherwise be very difficult. For example, you can have an admin level installer launch another process at a user level. Or you can have an admin level installer create shortcuts at a user level.

RequestExecutionLevel Admin

The script has admin access, I just need a way to find a way to change the reg key owner and permissions.
Will give it a shot today, was really frustrated yesterday smiley

[ Edit ] - http://nsis.sourceforge.net/AccessControl_plug-in
Simple google search.

Hi Scancode,

I finally have Win7 installed. So far, I'm not having any trouble adjusting to it. It's running quite well on my 5 year old laptop, which is not high-powered by any stretch of the imagination.

I look forward to hearing any updates you have on this coding snack. I will finally be able to test it.

Thanks to all and best wishes

I guess I'll drop WinXP support, release it, and call it a day. Booting my win7 VM
