You cannot install the Microsoft Compressed (LZH) Folder add-in in Windows 7

Symptoms

You cannot install the Microsoft Compressed (LZH) Folder add-in on a computer that is running Windows 7.

Cause

The Compressed (LZH) Folder add-in can be installed only on certain earlier Japanese Windows operating systems. By default, Japanese versions of Windows 7 include the Compressed (LZH) Folder functionality. Therefore, the installation of this add-in is blocked in Windows 7.

Status

This behavior is by design.

Resolution

In a Japanese version of Windows 7, use the built-in feature to work with LZH archives.
