Compressed formats available (RAR, GZ) ???
Jan 18th, 2006 at 9:48pm
 
Hey, I am pretty much sold on purchasing Watchdirectory for our company, although the final issue of compression formats remains. Is WD able to uncompress .RAR and .GZ file formats as well as ZIP?

If not, is this something that is on the list soon??

Many thanks, and great job on a powerful, easy to use piece of software!

Not at the moment with a dedicated plugin. However... see below.

Not soon, but we do intend to improve the ZIP/UNZIP archive handling with passwords and other formats (like RAR).

If you absolutely need to support RAR (etcetera) now, you can use the bat file plugin, to start a .bat file that does something like:

Code:
if %WD_FILE_E% EQU RAR GOTO :UnRar
if %WD_FILE_E% EQU GZ GOTO :UnGz
GOTO :NotSupported

:UnRar
C:\Bin\UnRar.exe "%WD_FILE%" C:\TargetDir
GOTO :EOF

:UnGz
C:\Bin\UnGz.exe "%WD_FILE%" C:\TargetDir
GOTO :EOF

etcetera
