Error when viewing Winzip file

Reported by: Karen Owned by:

The latest version was automatically downloaded this morning (

When I log onto a remote site, highlight a Winzip file, right click and select View/Edit, I get the attached error messages.

It's something I've never had a problem with before so I double-checked by downgrading to version 3.3.3 and I can view a zip file without error.

I cannot open docx. For screenshots you want to use the .png file format. Please attach a screenshot in the correct format.

Resolution: duplicate

Using DDE for file associations is a very complex and fragile thing and not recommended. Try removing the .zip file associations and setting them anew without resorting to DDE.

This ticket is a duplicate of several other bug reports involving DDE which can be readily found using the search function. Examples include #4676 #5225
