    Default 7Zip integration

    Hi,

    Is there a plugin available for 7z archives (to allow BC to navigate the compressed archives in the same way that it can for zip files) ?

    Regards,
    Xeno

    Hi Xeno!

    Use the search function of this forum with 7zip and you will see, that this feature is on the famous wish list for a very very long time.
    Further information about the current state can only be provided by the development team.

    But your question may help to reorder the priorities on the wish list .

    Bye
    Christoph

    Now that 7-Zip has a dedicated command-line version, maybe there's an easy way to call it instead of the internal zip viewer...?

    There isn't a way to call a command line archive tool from BC as a plug-in, but support for 7-zip, along with a way to support command line archives as plug-ins are both on our wish list.

    Hi Frank,

    Beyond Compare 3.1.6 has read-only support for 7-zip files.

    Any chance you can update the 7zip library to v9.20 or newer (I need LZMA2 support) that the v4 library currently in use doesn't have it and just replacing it with the new one doesn't work (unlike the unrar one witch also needs updating to v4 but can be replaced by the user)

    Hello,

    We would be interested in collecting various archive files for testing purposes. Would you be able to email us a couple pairs of files you are having trouble with at support@scootersoftware.com?

    If you email us, please include a link back to this forum post for reference.

    The file was created by archiving it with 7-Zip v9.22 and the following settings:


    P.S. The latest (at the moment) 7zxa library is available from http://sourceforge.net/projects/seve...ra.7z/download

    Thanks. I'll add this to our test cases. We'll investigate and see what we can do.

    In the meantime, you can binary scan a 7z as a file to determine if the content has changed without navigating into the archive.
