Any Tested TugZip in 7 yet?

I was just wondering because for some reason it works for me but it won't allow me to open an archived file keeps saying file system not recognized and its a rar file so I know it's compatible used it for years with Xp no problems. If anyone has a way to fix it let me know

Try this utility, it unpacks about every type, even non self-extracting .exe files
Universal Extractor

thank you I just tested it and it says rar file is supported but could not extract file so I guess I'll switch to XP and try tugzip there if it doesn't work then i'll redownload the file and try again

Try going to the page itself and look over the formats.

I'm able to open RAR files perfectly well. As a matter of, Universal Extractor should have associated itself with RAR achives.

It your other program doesn't recognize the RAR format, I believe you file associations are screwed up.

yeah come to find out the file association was screwed up it works now i got it to work in Xp made a new folder on another drive and installed it in 7 without problem
