Windows 7: rar.exe cannot open new archives

10 Dec 2012   #1

Windows 7
rar.exe cannot open new archives

I am using RAR.EXE (not WINRAR.EXE) for a long time. I did it also in Windows 7.
I do not know, what settings I did, because now, I cannot create new archives from this program or I cannot overwrite existing files, when I want to unpack some archive files. Only in Windows 7 OS.
The message coming from RAR.EXE is “Cannot open xxxx file” in case of new archives and “Cannot create xxxx” in case of unpacking over existing files.
Thanks for help.
