You are right.
Installer for beta updated.

Hi Bernat,

Now you can use UserDefaultLang on WinRAR Portable.
To change language:
WriteRegStr HKEY_CURRENT_USER "Software\WinRAR\General" "LanguageFolder" "$EXEDIR\${APPDIR}\Languages\$LNG"

To extract French language:
1. Download WinRAR French
2. Create new folder: App\WinRAR\Languages\fr
3. Extract setup and copy winrar.lng or rarlng.dll to the new created folder

Bernat said...

Interesting, but .SFX and .chm are also localized and languages such as Italian are localized in .exe itself (no winrar.lng or rarlng.dll).

Official 5.00 b5 for both SimpChinese and TradChinese are out (http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm).
But installer not install correctly instead it installed the English ver.

Is there an Offline version of this installer please ?

Bernat said...

No: too much languages.

Дмитрий Гордиенко said...

Bernat Thank you very much for your work ! Use your portable versions of programs and very happy. Success to you in your work. I greet you from Ukraine. With best regards, Dmitry.

GlacialMan said...

Hi Bernat, thank you very much for the blog. I noticed that italian version's links, in RARLAB site, are old; backup links are:



thanks, bye.

Sor_Chi said...

Yeah it keeps asking for a version number...ive tried them all and it doesnt work.

Bernat said...

Please, read before reporting:
"Select language and enter 501 or 420"

drcoolmor said...

Works OK in win8.1 but shell integration does not work!!
Any work around this? A must have feature when working with a lot of files.

Bernat said...

This can be done using registry but would be a bad thing: since 5.20 WinRAR can use only a ini file and this advantage in potability has to be kept.

You can simply use drag'n drop.

Ciao there is a possibility to insert the command "estrai qui" , "estract here" , "extractirai tuka" , command that are aviable in a normal version of WinRAR installed with an installer ? I think that is possible becuase in older version of XP i can insert the commmand "copia" , "copy" , "copirai", into particular task with the register of WIndows

Bernat said...

Yet answered above.

Denni Paritchkov said...

For me not are answers at my questions there are answers for problem with the languages ? I quest if there is the possibily when i do a right-click TO have in the menu the option "extract here" thanks

Bernat said...

You can use Extract to the specified folder for "Extract to" or "Extract without confirmation" for "Extract here"

More context menu in installed version result of shell integration by registry and will not be done.

Denni Paritchkov said...

Sorry but i have this: http://ultraimg.com/image/6mDw Why for you i have this ?

Bernat said...

My first answer was the good.
You expect a right click menu in Windows Explorer, I did a right click on a fie in WinRAR main windows.

Kuku Bau said...

I get this error.


Any clue?


Bernat said...

Can you download with this link?

If you can, retry, installer use the same link for english 32 bit.

BitDefender displays a virus warning and blocks installation. Doesn't happen with other Portable installation pacages though. Any info on this? A false positive maybe?
