    Question Archives as Folders for Comparison of Contents using Archive Associations & Plug in?

    Attempted to add .WIM as a folder extension to compare based on this: (To compare some Microsoft WIM files)
    http://www.scootersoftware.com/v4hel...ive_files.html

    These are the 2 lists I found on google:
    https://totalcmd.net/directory/packer.html
    https://www.ghisler.com/plugins.htm (nicer table)

    Added this:
    https://totalcmd.net/plugring/unark.html
    Doesnt seem to be working? or taking too much time on disk?

    So intend to add this:
    http://www.totalcmd.net/plugring/Total7zip.html

    Can you check which one is better/ will work/ is working?

    PS: Is it possible to remove a Folder / Archive Plugin (via UI or INI/ XML/ Config/ Settings file) (if so, how & where) -
    Especially when there is overlap of Plugins that can handle certain Archive formats?

    PPS: It'd be nice if you could point to the .ISO and .MSI plugin that works well (seems there's more than one).

    Beyond Compare 4.1.9 has built in support for .WIM archives, so you might want to upgrade from version 3 to version 4.

    To remove Total Commander packer plug-ins from Beyond Compare 3, delete the plug-in *.wcx file from "C:\Program Files (x86)\Beyond Compare 3\Packers".

    To change the file extensions associated with an archive plug-in in Beyond Compare 3, open "Tools > Options". Go to the Folder Views section. Then edit the semicolon separated list of masks to remove associations for specific file extensions.

    I haven't tried either of the .wim plugins you listed.

    Beyond Compare 4 also added support for .ISO archives. BC4 doesn't support .MSI files.

    I tested the MSI plugin listed at https://www.ghisler.com/plugins.htm, but it didn't work for me. I'm not aware of another .MSI plugin.
