WinZip is installed and associated to .gz.

Also, if I turn off "Decompress .gz files on open" in v22, it opens in Hex mode.

If I select "Save as new file" rather than "Create the file", nothing happens.  "Create the file" gives the file not found error.  What if the exploded file were put in the directory with the .gz rather than under it?

No effect for me. Some of the test cases I did, I already had the file decompressed in the same directory as the .gz file.

At least we know the "Decompress .gz files on open" option is taking effect.

There has got to be something different about the configuration of your machines.

Could it an antivirus program or similar interfering? I'm not sure why an AV would block access to .gz files, but the behavior kind of sounds like the random problems that can occur when an AV decides it doesn't like something: just cause a failure without any notice about why or that the AV is involved at all.

If this was happening on Linux I'd suggest using strace to figure out why the failure is occurring (or at least whether or not it's happening at the system level). But the closest thing to that on Windows I can think of is the SysInternals procmon utility, and it didn't play well on my computer the last time I tried so I'm not sure I can suggest it.

Good points. I'm pretty sure he's on Windows.
