Can't open a distribution archive

#1 Post by Free4all » 30.08.2018, 08:18

WinMerge2011 is now distributed as a CPL file, which can be renamed with a .zip extension, and unzipped using 7-Zip, Bandizip, etc.

See:
https://bitbucket.org/jtuc/winmerge2011/downloads/
and:
https://bitbucket.org/jtuc/winmerge2011 ... _setup.cpl

Unfortunately, FCXE 781 on Win7 responds with "Archive is damaged. Native error: 00048" when trying to open the file (after renaming it to have a .zip extension).

Can FCXE be updated to open such an archive without generating an error?

It is not a ZIP archive.
It is SFX 7-Zip Archiv.
You can open the file in FreeCommander with the Total7Zip plugin.

Thanks!

It will be great if FreeCommander XE could view such files without the need for a plugin.
