Windows 7: WinZip 8.1

WinZip 8.1

I'm having trouble using WinZip version 8.1 under Windows 7.

Under XP, WinZip has two nice features:

- the context (right click) menu includes "Extract to current folder"

- it is possible to drag-and-drop folders onto a .zip file

Both of these features are inoperable in Windows 7. The context menu for WinZip just isn't there at all, and drag-and-drop doesn't function. The OS just ignores my attempts to drop a folder on the archive. Is there a way to get these to function?

Thanks,
Mike

From the winzip website: "
WinZip versions earlier than WinZip 12.1 have not been tested with and are not recommended to be used with Windows 7."
