The current QC client doesn't allow 7zip archive attachments, even though there is the option in the Attachments->Browse window to select files of "all type".

Either a warning should be issued, or QC client could support 7zip.
Steps to Reproduce:
Submit a QC bug report.
Browse to the report.
Right on the Attachments tab.
Click Add attachment...
Select All Files (*.*)
Browse to a 7zip file.
Click Open.
Result; Nothing is attached.
Thanks for the report and workaround

7zip also supports .zip format, so you can still use 7zip, but save the achive as a .zip file.
