7Zip on Windows 8.1

12 posts in this topic

Hey All,

 

Anyone else having problems getting 7Zip to work on Windows 8.1 It looks like it installs but when you go to search for it its not there, There is no trace of it anywhere. No menu items etc. The weird thing is that it installs with no errors. 

 

This is the latest version from the 7zip site.

Stable version listed on their website is too old and was released in November 2010.

 

I suggest you to try Alpha version from here: http://www.neowin.net/news/7-zip-933-alpha

 

If you already trying Alpha version, I will suggest you to look through current bugs list on their project page: http://sourceforge.net/p/sevenzip/bugs/?source=navbar

Works fine here, always has. I use the version that Ninite.com installs, 9.2.0

I've been using 7zip stable release on Windows 8.1 without issue. I guess the obvious question, I assume you have installed the correct 32 or 64bit for your system?

I used 7zip on Win 8.1 and worked fine, then I switched to Easy 7Zip and it works fine.

Search for 7-zip, not 7zip. Also, try reinstalling, no idea why it doesn't work for you. The experience is the same across Vista, 7 and 8.

Are you using some sort of sandbox?

I installed the Alpha one and it works fine also noticed you have to search for 7-zip.
