Windows 7: Add to archive "FileName.xpi"

30 Mar 2014   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x32

Thank you for your kind continuous help. I'm really grateful.

Here is a link to WinRar command line:
Using the WinRAR Command-line tools in Windows

There are 2 bat files examples in that post.
1) I'm not really familiar with that.
2) How can I make WinRar (or any other archiver) compress the selected files in a ZIP format with an XPI extension?

If and when you have the time, I'd appreciate your further assistance.
Slowly but surely we'll get there.

BTW, WinRar offers a 40 days trial. After that period it starts with a nag screen.

Best regards.

I think there may be a crossed wire in that file associations will produce an option to open a file type with a program. But an archiver is supposed to compress files of any type to the archive. So what's needed is a program to put in all files in the registry. The problem with doing that is if you have 10 files selected and click to open program xyz, the program xyz.exe gets launched 10 times with one param as in
xyz file one
xyz file two

xyz.exe has to be written as a single instance program. The instances after the first just pass the param then exit. You might try for a WinRar alternative that can do this.

Thanks again. You are a kind man.

I've checked several archivers, but couldn't find one with the option I want.
