Splitted Zip File Error In Windows Explorer

Jun 12, 2011 at 1:24 PM

Splitted zip Files created thru this library are being opened / unzipped via this library are opening fine..

But if we try to open the same files using Windows Explorer Or even 7 zip then it fails with an error. This is tested on Win 7.

Is there a solution for this problem ?

I don't believe that Windows Explorer supports spanned/segmented zip files. I could be wrong about this, but the last time I checked, Windows was not able to properly extract files from a spanned zip.

I am not certain about 7zip.  Maybe you know for sure?  If you could refer me to a documentation page that clearly states the 7zip support for spanned/segmented zips, I'd appreciate it.

I looked for the documentation on winzip, and could not find anything very clear. Their documentation refers to diskettes, as if it is 1994 or something. So I'm not clear.
