Thanks for the suggestion, but I use TC in a portable mode and its folder is not located on drive C: or in any system folder like program files or program files (x86).

this plugin seams to be broken it use to work as I remember testing it a few years ago now it just crashes TC both 32 and 64 you can open a bug report at their github page

edit
their build is broken the one I compiled years ago from their source still works (it's 32bit only)

edit #2
it's not really comparable to similar plugins it's inferior to toatal7zip as it only supports 7z zip and iso creation (with no options) and while it can unpack alz bh and a few other strange formats I have yet to encounter an alz file

Thanks for confirming that it is broken.
It is safe to say that the plugin is abandoned, as the issue from 2014 has not been addressed yet.

I mostly use 64bit commander. Is there a chance you can compile the 64bit as well.

I know the plugin is inferior to total7zip, but I was mainly interested in the plugin due to its ability to unpack some of the more exotic archives liked egg, alz and bh.

there have been no git commits since 2013 so yes it's safe to say this addon is abandoned

I'm not a developer I like to tinker (maybe I'll read a C++ book one of these days) I tried compiling the source with the free version of Visual Studio 2017 the 32bit version compiles fine but the 64 bit does not compile I get the error

Code: Select all

Error	C2664	'INT_PTR DialogBoxParamW(HINSTANCE,LPCWSTR,HWND,DLGPROC,LPARAM)': cannot convert argument 4 from 'BOOL (__cdecl *)(HWND,UINT,WPARAM,LPARAM)' to 'DLGPROC'	UnArkWCX	D:\unarkwcx-master\UnArkWCX.cpp	539	
that's over my head maybe a developer here could take a look at it

I understand, no problem.
I have a question for you regarding ARC library dlls in the plugin folder.
I decided to download newer libraries (ARKLIBRARY_6802_20170714.EXE) and update the current ones in the plugin folder.
Your modified 32bit version of the plugin refuses to unpack archives with the new dlls. Does your modified UnArkWCX.wcx only work with the included arc library?
For now I solved the 64bit problems with WCX plugin wrapper by MVV

I don't know I didn't modify anything in the plugin I just re-compiled the source from github I still don't understand why the original wcx crashes TC
