I open the archive inside 7zip, then double-click a file inside the archive to open it with the associated application, and I get "File not found" errors in the app (for example opening a image in Windows Photo Viewer).

Some times it works, but most of the times it doesn't. I think 7zip fails to extract the file in the temporary folder or something? Is there any fix?

I've had the same problem, I generally just drag that one file out and open it from the desktop or a temp folder.

Edit: Seems to be a known issue. See here and here, but there doesn't seem to be a fix for it other than the workaround we're both using.

yes I do that too, but it's really annoying :| – Alex Sep 14 '11 at 3:17
