Windows Grep Deleting Files when Look in ZIPs is checked

We have two virtually identical servers, both running Server 2003 R2 SP2 Enterprise x64, both with Windows Grep (http://www.wingrep.com) installed.

On one server, when the "Look in ZIPs" option is checked, instead of searching the folders, it deletes the files in the folders.  On the other server, it works as expected.

When "Look in ZIPs" is not checked, both versions work properly.

What could be causing this, and how do I fix it?

Are you sure both wingrep's are exactly the same version (check size and date of executable)?

If not, try copying the folder with the properly working wingrep to the server where it is misbehaving.

PS. If you rename the old folder before copying over the properly working one, most likely the shortcut(s) that you use to start the program, will automatically be updated to the renamed folder (so, still the old one, not the new one with the same original name).

In other words, you may need to check your shortcut(s), so that you are not accidentally still running the old version.

I don't know the background of your searching needs, but we use SearchWithin for certain searches in documents. The advantage is that it maintains an index.
