Winzip and Vista question

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by David Sherman, Jun 20, 2006.

  1. I use Winzip 9 to move sme email messages to my Vista machine.
    I zip them on XP machine and them unzip on Vitsa. I use Forte Inc
    Agent as email cliient and news group program. When I move them to
    Vista machien, I noticed that the Vista machine create a "temp
    folder" on the user name under "Document & settings". When the un
    zipping was done, the files remainded. I wonder why didn't Windows
    clean out the folder and delete those items?

    thanks

    I wonder if this is Vista or Winzip...shouldnt Winzip remove the temp files?
    Have you tried this with winzip 10 (thinking it may be more vista
    compatible)

    Because Vista uses \Users\Username\Appdata\Local\Temp instead of
    \Documents and Settings\Username so unless you manually add the
    \Documents and Settings\Username\Temp folder to the system TEMP
    variables, it doesn't recognise it as a temp folder.
