"General" option is missing WINRAR

Post by Debugger » Sun Dec 16, 2018 6:53 pm

The "General" option is missing when I create an archive and transfer files.
Please compare "Add to archive..." and default without initial files. This is terribly pointless.
How to solve this problem?

Winrar application.

Could you please explain this step in detail? What General option? how are you creating an archive? how are you transferring files?

Contex menu:
1. Create -> New -> Winrar archives.
2. Options -> Setting
and compare. General options:
1. Click on the file and Add... to the archive

Now compare both settings "General" are completely different, missing options. Why are not these settings?
This problem occurs in every application new or old.

This General options are of course different and will never be equal.
The first one controls GUI features and program behaviour while the 2nd one sets options for creating an archive.

horst.epp - But when I open the application, I can not, for example, set the password for the archive or transfer only specific files, so this is the insufficiency of the application. Big defect !!! :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x

Can set a default password for archives by
File->Set Default Password.

(Checked on WinRar trial version 5.61)

However, in the application, it is not possible to drop any files in the main application window, which is a significant obstacle. There is only "Add" and what to do as I want to add from different locations. Choosing all the specific catalogs is cumbersome. For example, I want to add from 1000 different locations so I will have to do it all day. That is an unworkable job. :o :o :o :cry:



In addition, an error in the new version of WinRAR.

Code: Select all

! Can not create C:\FORLISTS.rar
  The client does not have the required permissions.
