Which packer plugin is used when ctrl+pageDown in exe

Post by *aviasd »

Hi,

I have a few plugins that can handle exe installer/sfx files.

When I ctrl+Pagedown to the .exe, how do I know which one is used or how do I control the priority of them ?

In a related question - Is there an option to view the exe as archive with all supporting plugins - i.e toggling the plugin used like "4" in lister ?

Thanks!

After ctrl+Pagedown just perform a Alt-Enter on any file of the list.
There the related packer is displayed.

Thanks sqa_wizard!

In my case inno installer files are opened by total7zip while I have another wcx (InstallExplorer) that should be more able at opening these files.
Do you know how to switch a packer plugin with another for exe's?

You can try to reorder packer plugin entries in wincmd.ini, or try to create context menu entries for *.EXE internal association with actions like **ext1, **ext2 etc. where ext1 and ext2 are associated with different plugins for EXE, so you will be able to select a plugin to open a file via context menu.

Thanks MVV
Your method does work :)
I've used the internal assoications method
Haven't used internal associations for a while so I didn't know about the ability to send to a plugin...
Cheers

it's been a feature request asking for showing (switching) which plugin is used to open archives
