    thanks, checking it out!

    Tested here and rename worked.
    Tested by right clicking a file inside archive and then Rename
    or selecting a file and then Rename from the Action menu.

    Please send us a sample archive that reproduced it on your machine along with your settings(in a Cab file) to support at conexware dot com and we will attempt to reproduce it that way.


  • I forgot to mention something very important, Namely, the name of file I tried to rename was very, very long, over the NTFS file name (path) limit of 250 chars.

    Maybe that is the problem?

    Knowing that the file name is exceedingly long, I tried to rename it.

    Does this help?

    Thanks for the info.

    Here I have a 263 character filename to which I added characters to rename and it worked. Also removed characters to a shorter filename, also worked.

    Maybe we can give it a try with your sample file and settings as described in my previous post. Hopefully we’ll be able to reproduce it then.
