Decompressing .dwf

Aug 5, 2009 at 4:19 PM

I'm trying to decompress a .dwf file. Dwf files are zip files, I tried to decompress a .dwf with Winzip and Winrar and was ok. But when trying to decompress with DotNetZip library obtain an exception. Also obtain an exception when trying to decompress with J#. The I tried UnZip-5.51, and tell me the headers have \ instead of /, but decompresses succesfully. Can be this the cause of the excepcion with DotNetZip?

yes, that could be the cause.  I don't know what a DWF file is, but if you make one available to me for download, I can have a look.

Thanks a lot

perfect.  I was able to have a look at the file.  I think a very small change in the library will allow the file to be read.  I'll give you an update in a moment.

Yes, I just ran the tests  - a very small change allowed the DWF file to be read successfully.

I will post a new version in a short while.
