ZIP files don't show up in Outlook's Insert File Dialog

  • When PowerArchiver is configured as the handler for .zip files, they no longer show up in Outlook’s ‘Insert File’ dialog box when I try to attach the file for email.

    I can still attach the file as long as I know the name and type it into the edit field, but the file doesn’t show up in the list of files that can be selected with the mouse.

    This problem doesn’t occur if WinZip is the handler for .zip files.

    System info:

    WinXP SP2
    Outlook 2003
    PowerArchiver 9.20.07

  • Nevermind on this - it seems to have been caused by having a version of Winzip’s Outlook plugin installed.
