looking for a windows explorer plugin for archive files
« on: March 12, 2011, 09:26:44 PM »
I don't know what you would call it, so I guess I will call it a plugin for windows explorer.

I am looking for a plugin/program that will allow me to just double click on an archive and it will open the contents of the archive in an explorer window, just like what windows does when you double click on a zip file. Is this possible to do? The closest (and my current solution) is to use a program called universal extractor, which lets me right click on an archive and click uniextract. This is ok, but it just shows a cmd window stating the file it is currently extracting.

Thanks for the help. :Thmbsup:

There is an old compression program called Iceows that may be close to what you're after:  http://www.iceows.com/Hardcopy.htm

I used to use it back in the Win95/98 days so I have no idea if it works well with XP/V/7.

I just tried it out (win 7 x64) and it didn't seem to work.
