Does anyone know if Windows Search Companion can show the filesystem path and/or actual filename of the zip file that contains the found result row?

If the zip file C:\TEMP\Instance.zip contains a file with internal path \somepackage\somefile.txt, I can see that the search results will show \somepackage\somefile.txt in the Windows Search Companion results column "In Folder".

I'm wondering if there is any way, using Windows Search Companion (with or without any software addon), to see that \somepackage\somefile.txt is actually compressed within C:\TEMP\Instance.zip i.e. to show C:\TEMP as the containing ("In Folder") folder and/or that Instance.zip is the containing zip file?
