    I need some help...

    In XP Pro, I was able to right-click on any file and "zip" or "RAR"
    it. In Vista Business, I am unable to do so.

    WinZIP 9.0 --> I receive the following error:

    Error(0): The requested operation requires elevation.
    (D:\PROGRA~1\WINZIP\winzip32.exe" -* /addX

    Using WinRAR 3.62 --> Right-clicking on the target file and selecting
    "add to RAR" results in nothing!

    Next... E-mail attachments

    In XP Pro, I was able to drag-&-drop a file into my mail application
    (Barca 2.5). At that point, it would appear as an attachment. However,
    in Vista Business, when I "drop" the file on the mail screen, nothing
    happens. I need to insert the attachment via the "add attachment"

    Are the above actions typical of Vista? If so, can they be changed?

    My system:
    CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-M59SLI-S5 w/nVIDIA nForce 590 SLI
    RAM: 2048 MB (Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400PRO - DDR2-800, PC2-6400)
    BIOS: Award Modular (06/19/06)
    Video: BFG - NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GT OC (w/512 MB DDR3)
    Video Driver: nVIDIA 101.41 beta
    O/S: Microsoft Windows Vista Busines
    AV/AS/FW: Symantec Norton 360

  2. The programs you are do not seem to be compatible with Vista. You need to
    check with the makers of those programs for Vista compatible versions.

  3. Make sure you install the latest version of WinZip which is currently at
    version 11. I am experiencing the same problem with WinRAR though, best
    recommendation would be to right click New > WinRAR archive, rename it >
    open it > then drag the files into.
