As announced during the past weeks, we’re going to release the Context Menu patch.

Beside fixing the odd behaviour shown by ZipGenius’ context menu items – you know: “Add to XYZ.zip” doesn’t work – this patch will install the ZGTool “CZIP2 Opener” that has been released some week ago.

We’re doing this because of the “Unicode disaster” we talked about in a previous post: due to parts of ZipGenius being compiled with different development environments, the newer parts produce CZIP archives that can’t be read by current ZipGenius build, which was compiled in 2011 with a non-Unicode development environment.

You can see this odd behaviour if you try to convert a ZIP to CZIP from the Windows context menu or from the command line module: if you try to open that CZIP file with ZG 6.3.2.3110, you will get a “Wrong passphrase” error message.

How we’re getting rid of this?

We’re doing it in a dirty yet efficient way: we are adding “CZIP2 Opener” to the ZipGenius setup packages and to the setup package that will apply the patch for the context menu.

CZIP files will be associated to the “CZIP2 Opener” tool, so that you can double click one to run the ZGTool; at that point the ZGTool will ask you if you want to open the file with ZipGenius or go on trying with the ZGTool. We introduced this request because ZipGenius can decrypt and open own-made CZIP archive – obviously, they are CZIP encrypted and decrypted using the same CZIP library.

The patch will be available starting from tomorrow.
