A quick check would seem to indicate that WinZIP 11.x+ or newer is 64bit
compatible with Windows. Honestly, version 9.x is totally deprecated. I
use version 15 myself and it offers massive improvements, including a
few I requested myself.

Probably if someone wanted to resolve this problem they could spend
some time on the Microsoft TechNet or something similar. It is
probably only a minor tweak that needs to be done. I do have to agree
with Robert though on his assessment of the problem with compatibility.
