well, I am at a loss. The only thing I can think of is that perhaps the user
interface for 7-zip has changed. I am using 7-zip version 4.57.
other than that, all I can think of is to double-check a few steps.
- for example, when you are in 7-zip and you select the file
inkscape_r11604.7z it is important that you do a single click, not a
- then hit Extract
- then browse to a new location, such as \Program Files\
- in order to prevent overwriting old files you may want to browse to a
subdirectory of your username and extract it there. This way you will not
get any warning messages saying that you are overwriting files, and you also
will not encounter any security problems caused by writing to a system
- then note that you will get a new sub-directory called Inkscape and the
Inkscape executable file will be inside this subdirectory.
