I have to agree with db90h
on the state of the LZMA source - it's frigging ugly, some of the worst I've seen in a long time. I took a five-minute look at it and decided that I had better things to do than utilizing LZMA compression. The GPL license sucks, and so does the majority of code released under it.
I also agree WinRAR
is king - it's got a nice, clean interface, doesn't try to do a lot of weird things, etc. It has UnRar for a lot of platforms, supports all important things on NT (security info, alternate data streams), has extremely good
command-line support etc.
One way is to use the 7za.dll (available from sf.net for download). The 7za.dll works via COM interfaces. It, however, doesn't use standard COM interfaces for creating objects.
Now how bloody stupid is THAT?
For those of you that have taken advantage of this offer, you can't use the instructions in the email they sent you, once you have that key.
It says to double click the key file but that will result in this error:
There's many apps (all protected by asprotect, iirc?) that decide to associate themselves with the *.key file extension - pretty lame.
