Windows zip error: Windows cannot complete the extraction. The destination file could not be created


I have a strange error in Windows 7 when I want to execute/open a file inside ZIP archive.

I have two files:


The archive is not corrupted ( I checked with 7zip utility )

enter image description here

When I double click on the any file inside ZIP (I opened ZIP with Windows Explorer), the error occured:

Ok. If I open zip file with 7-zip or WinRAR every file could be opened(executed) without error and the AutoCAD is opened to see the dwg content.

Why in Windows ZIP ?

What points have I to see to manage/remove this error ?

Thank you.


If I click Extract all from Windows ZIP, the error occured as unspecified error:

It looks like Windows is having a hard time creating the temporary file for you to view (it extracts it into temp when you double-click it, then opens it for viewing). Perhaps clear out your temp folder (there are tools online for this) and try again to view the files.

Out of interest, though, can you extract the files normally (via the "Extract all" command) specifying a path (which obviously isn't temp)?
