64 bit 7-zip

    When you install the 32 bit 7-zip on x64, the install seems to work but
    the program does appear in the start-<all programs menu. In any event,
    they now have a 64 bit version of the program which does work.

    The compression software that comes with x64 is generally good enough,
    but it can't handle tar or gz format.

    I don't have any problems opening .tar and .gz files with the
    installation I have on my computer, and I downloaded it from the same
    site you list.

    Perhaps you don't have your file associations set.

    he was referring to the built in MS compression program not supporting tar
    or gz
