    paths in windows uses backlashes

    Only some tools (including cmd.exe and are restricted to backslashes, the API functions accept both forward slashes and backslashes in all versions of DOS and Windows. So, using forward slashes is perfectly ok.


    Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)
      not in this case.use the aforementioned code, change the slashes,and see what happens

        Changed the slashes still it gives me the same error..

    I changed backslashes but still gives me chain error. Another thing i noticed is that if i comment out list_archives_in_file method , it extracts to the location but if i list_archive first and then process_file it gives the chain error.

      does it extract the files? if yes,forget about the "error" as I have already explained

        Thanks for the help. Tell me one thing is it neccesary for the unrar.dll file to be in system32 folder? As I am making an exe I wanted to know If could just bundle the dll file with script file and make the exe. Is this possible?
