Code: Select all
v19.30.0028 - 2018-11-15 16:12 + Hover Box: Now you can get a Zip Contents Preview in the Hover Box also for the 7z format (7-Zip), and many other archive formats that are supported by 7-Zip. XYplorer tries to find the needed helper file "7z.exe" automatically in the usual locations (e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\7-Zip\7z.exe). So if you are reasonably lucky it should just work. If the preview fails you can tweak the location, for example: ZipPath7zip=C:\My Crazy Path To 7-Zip\7z.exe Notes: - Supported archive formats (extensions): 001.7z.arj.bz2.bzip2.cab.gz.gzip.iso.rar.tar.wim.xz Note that also RAR is supported, so you will get a RAR preview even if WinRAR isn't present on your system. - Obviously 7-Zip has to be installed on your system (a portable installation might suffice). - Unicode characters in the packed items are shown as "_". Unfortunately 7z.exe does not seem to support listing those characters. - The summary file size is provided (top level, no recursion). * Hover Box on RAR: Now it shows the summary file size (top level, no recursion). > Hover Box on RAR Files: Note empty folders are now correctly recognized as folders. ! Hover Box on Text Files: Did not support a remembered codepage. Fixed. ! MDBU on Text Files: Did not support a remembered codepage. Fixed.
Note that BETA versions are work in progress and might contain fresh bugs. You have been warned.
It's a good idea to backup your complete XYplorer settings (menu File | Settings Special | Backup Application Data Folder...)
before running a new BETA version. This will also help in fixing any fresh bugs.
