Windows Explorer Does Nothing When Trying to Open File in ZIP Archive Encrypted with AES
Bezalel - June 23, 2010 - 12:29pm
I have created one archive by encrypting PDF files with AES, and a second archive by encrypting with ZipCrypto. If I use 7-Zip to access either archive, they work fine.
However, if I use Windows Explorer (within XP Pro), I have a problem. When I try to access the archive encrypted with AES, it shows each file within the archive, but when I click on one of the PDF files, it does nothing. It doesn't prompt me for a password or open the file or anything. (Explorer properly accesses files in the archive encrypted with ZipCrypto.)
