How to add 7-ZIP to the WD.ENV file

935 Views, 3 Replies

I have seen a few previous threads on this topic - but no solution...

 

Has anybody successfully gotten 7-ZIP to work with AutoCAD Electrical (esp. 2010)? I have tried a couple of things unsuccessfully:

WD_ZIP,c:/program files/7-Zip/7z.exe, command line version

WD_ZIP,c:/program files/7-Zip/7zFM.exe, main file manager version

If so - what does the line in the WD.ENV file look like?

 

Please help!!

WnZIP and WinRAR working correctly with AutoCAD Electrical 2012.

But I have only 7-ZIP.

And have the same problem.

I do not know how to specify a string WD_ZIP in WD.ENV for 7-ZIP :smileysad:

WD_ZIP,c:/program files/7-Zip/7z.exe - does not work!!!

 

Please help!!!

Ruslan and others,

 

Making copy of 7z.exe as rar.exe and using “WD_ZIP, c:\Program Files (x86)\7-Zip\rar.exe” does the trick...

That shouldn't work...

 

But somehow it does.  Thanks!
