FastUnzip Snack
« on: April 25, 2012, 03:37:12 PM »
This was a request by TaoPhoenix.

FastUnzip Snack is an fast un-archiving application.

After install you will get a settings dialog (see attached image) that will allow you to:
  • Set the file associations (supported file types are ZIP, RAR, 7z, TAR, CAB)
  • Set an Open With application to open archives (used when FastUnzip Snack is disabled or popup menu is used)
  • Disable FastUnzip Snack (must have an Open With application set)
  • Use a popup menu before extraction (see attached image)

You can also open the settings from Start > FastUnzip Snack > FastUnzip Snack Settings

Update:
  • Added sub menus in popup menu to allow delete and move w/o having to set in the settings dialog

Just a quick note, it's   "attachthumb' not 'Attachthumb' (Case Sensitive)

Back on topic...Great Job!

I have an update to FastUnzip Snack. I added a menu item called "Extract and Run". This will extract the archive and list all the EXE files in the archive and you can then run it. After the program is closed the temp folder is removed.

You can download from my website as it is easier then updating the posts. I'll attached it here also, but if there are any future updates please see the website.

Make sure you have the popup menu enabled on the settings dialog. Then when you double click on an archive, you will get a menu and at the bottom should be Extract and run.

Okay I see it now. Tip. If I just try to "close" the settings box instead of "cancel" I get Runtime Error 2 at line 355.

Ok. I fixed the error. You can DL from the update my website. It's not very well done, but I really don't have any other place to put my stuff other than on dropbox. I don't have the money to buy space anywhere. The best I have is a free 100 mb site that I was given which is not enough and a registered domain that I may not be able to keep up with when it runs out, so DB will have to do.

Then allow me to remark that one of my minor specialties is in Free Web Hosting. I can basically get you a 1 Gig site for free. I ran a 18 month study of free hosts and using my own special criteria I selected about 2-4 hosts that I am "certifying" for new users. PM me if you want details, but don't let either 100 megs or paying be a problem.

On a different topic, except for 7 clicks difference, why wouldn't you post updates here? Don't DC members get space?

If we do get space, i dont know how to access it. I cant find anything in my profile settings. I guess i could just keep updating here, but i just need to keep track of what thread i posted on to update that file each time. I should really build in an update function into my software.

Well, I sent my notes off to my two lead external hosts. You can work it for a couple of days.

You could use DC's very own "DCUpdater" for that :)

Chris,

Your new version seems to be missing the refresh - the folder is not appearing again when I extract - to subfolder.

Odd. It is in the latest version. I'm doing some small updates, including adding DCUpdater support. As soon as I get it updated I'll let you know.

New version is available. Download from http://starpunch.net
Added DCUpdater and a few small tweaks. Not sure if this will fix your refresh issue as i didn't change anything to that part of the code since I first added it.

Far from me to know why anything is, but it looks like it's back to working now!

Another update. I didn't take into account UAC in Vista/7. I moved the settings to a sep exe so I could require admin to write to the registry. If I left that in an added require admin to the main app, it would show every time it was run to extract an archive. You can download from my website or if you got the previous version from today you can try the update function.

Yep, another update.  :) Added the settings option to add "Convert to ZIP" and/or "Convert to RAR" to the folder context menu. It will convert the selected folder to a ZIP or RAR archive then delete the folder. To convert to an RAR archive you MUST have a registered version of WinRAR installed and set as your Open With app in the settings. DL from my site or use the update feature.

Chris,

I am trying to unconvert a RAR, but even after running the setup with all the associations checked, Fast Snack doesn't find it, and the other program is still the default. Any ideas? (XP)
