Chilkat dotnet4 is unable to unrar a .rar file.
« on: December 11, 2017, 02:07:03 AM »
Hi everyone,

I have a requirement in web application to unrar a .rar file. I have downloaded latest WinRAR-x64-550 version and make a .rar file of any text document. I have downloaded 32 bit Chillkatdotnet4.dll version -v9.5.0.70 and trying to unrar .rar file but rar class of chilkat library is not extracting .rar file.
I am working in c# and using Visual studio 2010.

So please help me and give any idea or any link to solve this issue.

The Chilkat.Rar and RarEntry classes are legacy and deprecated, and have remained frozen for many years.  In fact, they only exist in the builds of the .NET assembly for the older .NET Frameworks (2.0, 4.0).   They are not publicly documented.  The classes are only capable of unrar, and cannot create RAR archives.

At a certain point in the future, these classes will be removed from the builds where they remain.  When this happens we'll likely move them to a separate assembly, available upon request, and to remain frozen until the end of time.  :)
