WinRAR 7.00 Beta 2


WinRAR is an archiving utility that completely supports RAR and ZIP archives and is able to unpack CAB, ARJ, LZH, TAR, GZ, UUE, BZ2, JAR, ISO, 7Z, Z archives. It consistently makes smaller archives than the competition, saving disk space and transmission costs. WinRAR offers you the benefit of industry strength archive encryption using AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) with a key of 128 bits. It supports files and archives up to 8,589 billion gigabytes in size. It also offers the ability to create self extracting and multi volume archives. With recovery record and recovery volumes, you can reconstruct even physically damaged archives.

What's new in WinRAR 7.00 Beta 2:

  • 64-bit WinRAR version uses 64-bit SFX modules by default. 64-bit SFX modules are needed to unpack archives with dictionaries exceeding 1 GB. 32-bit modules are renamed to Default32.SFX, Zip32.SFX, WinCon32.SFX.
  • Maximum allowed dictionary size for archiving and extraction can be specified in gigabytes in MaxDictA and MaxDictE variables in "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\WinRAR\Policy" Registry key. If these variables are smaller than corresponding values defined in WinRAR interface, they override interface values.
  • "Benchmark" command:
  • a) wider text area allows to fit longer system information strings;
  • b) "Copy to clipboard" buttom copies both text and window screenshot.
  • Note to software developers: FCI_RAR5_COMPAT and UNPACK_MAX_DICT values have been added in UnRAR source code 7.0.3. If earlier version of UnRAR 7 source code was integrated into application, it is necessary to update it to support them.
  • Console RAR filters out character 27 from screen output. It is done for security reasons, because this character can be used to declare ANSI escape control sequences in some terminal applications. We are thankful to Siddharth Dushantha for bringing this issue to our attention.
  • "Remove" option is added to "Original archive name and time" list on "Options" page of "Info" dialog. Unlike "Do not save", it removes the archive information even if no other options in this dialog are modified.
  • It is possible to enable "Packed" column in WinRAR file list also outside of archives to see NTFS compressed file size.
