Windows 7: 7-Zip won't integrate to shell

7-Zip won't integrate to shell

I'm running windows 7 pro 64 bit as administrator. Installed 7-zip portable. When I tick the "Integrate 7-Zip to shell context menu" and then "OK", I get the error message:
"an event was unable to invoke any of the subscribers" and it won't integrate.

Anyone have any ideas?



thanks in advance

If it is a 32 bit program it will not work on the 64 bit context menu. You need 64 bit version to do that. That is the same of all programs unless the developer has added extensions.

One way you can work around it is to use a 32 bit file manager like FreeCommander 2009.0b. It has options how to handle 32 bit and 64 bit context menus.

Indianatone, MilesAhead, thanks for replying.

It says 7-zip portable is suppose to work on 64 bit systems but could be wrong. I'll probably just try the non-portable 7-zip specifically for 64 bit from their site 1st. The portable version came from portableapps.com.

Will get back afterwards.

thanks guys.

Sorry it took a bit to get back to you. Power to my house went out for a minute.

I went to 7-zip/tools/options/7-zip and ticked "Integrate 7-zip to shell context menu" and I get the error message.
Here's a screen showing I only have an Administrator account and another of the error message.

Right-click and access the Options using 'Run as Administrator'. Its different to using a Windows 7 Administrator account.

Registry: differences between Shell Folders and User Shell Folders?
Please consider these two keys: What is the main difference between these? Say, I've changed first the keys under Shell Folders and then under User Shell Folders. It was only until I'd changed those under User Shell Folders (after restarting the machine) did the changes take place.
