Disabling the Folder View of Zip Files in Windows XP

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Windows XP's built-in zip support interferes with some of the Q++ features related to the mirroring and restoration of backups. You should disable the built-in ZIP support in Windows XP on any PC that is used to run Q++ (including the server).

 

To disable the built-in zip support:

 

1.Open a command prompt, or the Start / Run menu from the Start button at the bottom left of your screen.

 

2.Type: regsvr32 /u %windir%\system32\zipfldr.dll

 

3.Press Enter.

 

4.You should receive a successful confirmation.

 

5.Shutdown and restart your computer.

 

NOTE: If you ever need to re-register the zipfldr.dll library, use: regsvr32 %windir%\system32\zipfldr.dll.
