I'm having a problem figuring out how to configure Opus to open RAR files and I'm hoping someone can help me sort things out. I've read through many forum posts - including the FAQ article titled "HOW TO: Make RAR files open in Opus on double-click" - but I still can't seem to get it to work.
As instructed by the FAQ article, I did a search of my entire "C" drive to locate any additional unrar.dll files that may be creating a conflict. I found around 5 or 6 of them in total - one in the System32 folder, one in the Opus VFSPlugins directory and a few others in folders related to other programs. I renamed them one-by-one to see if they were creating a conflict with Opus. Lastly, I renamed all of them at the same time to see if they might be creating the problem collectively. I tried opening a RAR file within Opus after renaming each individual file.
In the end, I had no luck as Opus kept giving me an error (something about a problem with the archive). I tried many different RAR files and received the same error message each time. However, all of the same RAR files open fine when not trying to use Opus to view them.
***Please note: I did not rename the unrar.dll file in the Opus VFSPlugins directory at any time. I only renamed the other files that were not related to Opus. Additionally, I made sure to update the File Type settings for the RAR extension per the instructions provided in the FAQ article mentioned above (Events tab > Left Double-click > [added] Go command).
Did I miss a step somewhere? Could there be any other reasons why this feature isn't working properly?
FYI - I'm using a Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit notebook PC with the latest version of Opus installed (v188.8.131.52.3806). I'm also using WinRAR v3.93 if that matters.
If I missed a post that includes info specific to my issue, I apologize in advance. I would appreciate any advice you may have to offer on how to fix this problem. I've wanted to get it sorted out for a while now and apparently can't figure it out on my own.
