Hi, I had encrypted some excel files with winzip in Vista OS. I also have a .txt file that is not encrypted in the same winzip.

Now, I have switched back to XP OS and download winzip 11.0, I am not able to extract out or view the files whether they are encrypted or non-encrypted.

Here is the screenshot. Hoping someone can help me. I will greatly appreciate it.
