7-zip context menu problems on Windows 7 64 bit
« on: October 09, 2010, 03:23:04 AM »
Hi there,

I have a problem with 7-zip program on my personal computer, that runs Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.
If I try to create a new zip file or to extract from a zip file by using the context menu (anywhere on the computer), I get the following error: "The requested operation requires elevation. C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7zG.exe"

I tried both beta and regular version, and the same problem occurs. I have the same program installed at work, on Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit, and and the same operations work without a problem.

I noticed that if I kill the Windows Explorer process and then I start it again, the operations work.

Do you have any ideas as to why this is happening?

Thanks,
bgd77

The problem would seem to be admin related ... what happens if you set explorer to run/launch as a seperate process ? maybe the 2nd process will have different rights.

Under TOOLS>FOLDER OPTIONS.

  see this link for explanation and how-to http://malektips.com...eparate-process.html


This solution assumes u execute your context menu command from an explorer window tho, probably.
