Can FoldMonkey Extract Files From New RAR Archives?


Use the following instructions to do this (FoldMonkey version 1.14 or greater):

1.

Download and install WinRAR from www.rarlabs.com

2.

Create a batch file (using a plain text editor such as Notepad) to extract RAR archives. The file will look something like this:

@echo off
cls
"C:\Program Files\WinRAR\RAR.exe" x %1 "D:\Target Folder"
cls
exit

Save this file with a .bat extension (For example, ExRar.bat).

3.

The above batch file will have to be edited to suit your needs. For example, the above script will extract files to "D:\Target Folder". If you want to change this location, you can edit this line.

4.

Right click on the FoldMonkey icon and select "Run as administrator".

5.

Set up FoldMonkey to monitor the folder that you wish RAR files to be extracted from. You can enter a file pattern of *.RAR to target only RAR files.

6.

Scroll to the bottom of the Settings box and check (tick) the "Launch Program" box.

7.

Click the "Select" button. This will open a "Load File" window. Navigate to the batch file that you created in step 2 above and click on the "Load" button.

8.

In the parameters section, use the "Add Text" button to enter the following tags: "<filePath>\<newFileName>"

Include the back-slash and encompassing quote marks.

Also, tick the "Wait For Program To Close Before Moving To Next File" tick box.

9.

The "Launch Program" box should now look similar to Fig 1 below:

Click the "Start To Monitor" button to start the operation.
