Unfortunately, on Windows 7 and Vista, V cannot extract the contents of ZIP files to protected folders (like Program Files). You will receive an error message instead of the expected UAC prompt. If you need to extract files to a protected folder, you can use one of the following workarounds:

    - Extract to a temporary folder and then move the files in the temporary folder to the protected folder
    - Run V as an Administrator. That is, right-click on the V shortcut and select Run As Administrator.
