It's not just you: Vista can't reliably unzip files (0x800704C8)

If you’re one of the few, the…well, maybe not proud…running Vista, this should look familiar:

Vista error 0x800704C8

If you’re not running Vista, this is what happens — multiple times — when you extract files from a .zip archive. (To unzip this particular archive, I had to click Try Again to get past this error more than 30 times.)

The “Do this for all current items” is a nice gesture, but unfortunately it does nothing.

Vista may be great by 2008. But in 2007, it’s far from heaven.
