    WinRAR 5.71 messes up .ZIP password with Windows Explorer


    Hi everyone:

    This is so annoying. I just spent a good deal of time creating & uploading password protected .ZIP files using WinRAR 5.71. (I need to send them to my friend through a cloud account. They are fairly large.)

    Well, I just received an email reply from my friend that says that he can't open them This is the error message that he gets on his Windows 10:


    WinRAR 5.71 messes up .ZIP password with Windows Explorer a0MNbiH.png


    I just tried it and sure enough I can't open them on my Win 10 v.1903 either.

    Now, if I .ZIP them using WinRar 5.21 on my other Win10, using the same password, everything works fine.

    What is going on there?

    PS. I'm so pissed that I trusted it and uploaded everything without having checked first.

    :)

    7 Zip or WinRAR?

    This Windows feature was introduced with Windows 98 Plus Addition
     
  3. 7 Zip or WinRAR?

    I prefer WinRAR over 7-Zip, but I was given a paid version years ago and I can use it on Linux and Windows (7-Zip is Linux friendly as well).. Honestly, 7-Zip is just as good and free.. So, if you have the money then buy WinRAR, but if not 7-Zip all the way. WinRAR and WinZip use to be the ones to get for Windows, but all the Windows operating systems starting with Me can open Zip files. Since then WinZip's popularity has declined.. Oh and I like the plain UI with WinRAR and 7zip as well, but you can theme both of them. You really can't go wrong with either of them.

    7 Zip or WinRAR?

    I can't believe someone would still pay for Winzip... I found it installed on a client's PC a few weeks ago: made sure they hadn't paid for it, and uninstalled it.
