Usually when I try to open a file via winzip I have no problem, but sometimes I this happens...

I don't know about your question but I've been using for several years now IZArc for my archiving and extraction needs. It supports a ton of the most common file formats including rar and such and its easy to use. I haven't had trouble with it yet.

Don't use winzip, use 7zip or winrar...then that problem goes away.

I am begiining to abhor Izarc.

 

Unless you uncompress the entire folder in a place and then cut and paste, it is a PITA.

 

Say you go 3 folders deep, and there is a sub to extract as well. The whole prior path is there, and the items in the sub are not.

 

Annoying...

I've used Winzip for years and never had that.

 

Having said that, I've now got 7z as well - Column5 oblige - and it works very well.

Not WinZip, Izarc.

 

Winzip I love, used to use it's predecessor, PKZip for DOS, just to date myself.

 

I wish everything was in Zip format, even Windows caught up and can use it natively.

 

RAR is a throwback to Haxx0rs who use 733t-speak, IMHO...

Not knowing anything about this stuff i got 7-zip via Column5 and it's been smooth sailing.

 

I do agree with Spectre though, things are much easier dealing with Zips rather than RAR.

I don't much about it either but I don't recall having problems with izarc. I just download an addon, extract it to a temporary folder where I can see the files and readme, then move the files into the game.
