Internal associations for *.fb2.zip

Post by *MVV »

I've added an internal association for *.fb2.zip in order to open such files with AlReader, but TC still opens files as archives. Is there a way to avoid entering them as archives and opening with AlReader according to the internal association?

The only way I can make it work is to rename the *.fb2.zip files to for example *.zip.fb2 and then set the internal association accordingly to *.zip.fb2

The best way is to rename all *.fb2.zip files to *.fbz extension, which is already in use. See Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FictionBook

Well, .fbz looks like a good choice, thanks!
However it would be great to be able completely override Enter keypress with internal associations...

Unfortunately some e-readers don't understand .fbz extension so I have to rename it to .fb2.zip.

If you use slister plugin, you should rather use fb2z extension which is supported by SumatraPDF.
Unfortunately, Sumatra recognizes only extension and doesn't parse zip/rar/7z files to check their content (maybe they are epub/fbz ebooks or cbz/cbr/cb7 comic books?)

I don't use slister, I use separate reader tool AlReader which does open file with both .fb2.zip and .fbz extensions w/o problems.
But as I said, the problem is that I can't copy .fbz to the book reader device, it doesn't see it, so I prefer to keep files in .fb2.zip on my PC for easier synchronization (but in such case I can't open them in AlReader using internal associations).
