RAR extraction error?


I see that some users have problems with unpacking .rar archives. If your winrar say you need a password it’s definitely “old version” issue. If your winrar is few years old (yes I had users who never updated the software) the problems is here. That also concerns few other errors so if you ever get an error while extraction please follow this steps:

  • Check if your winrar version is bellow 5.40 if yes update it.
  • If after updating you get the same error try downloading the file again (Your browser could drop few bytes or your connection was lost).
  • If the two steps above doesn’t work it’s probably my fault and you can write a comment or e-mail… Remember to give the full name of the file and filehost.

Here is the the latest version of WinRar (x64 and x86)
