Archive Viewer

Release date: 
Thursday, 1 August, 2013



Authors/Port authors:

Archive Viewer is a very simple GUI tool for viewing and extracting archive files of various types. It originated as a system utility included in eComStation (and it remains so to this day). It cannot create archives.

The Archive Viewer can handle the following types of archive file:

  • ZIP archives (*.zip)
  • Unix-style tape archives (*.tar)
  • Both tape archives (above) and single files which have been compressed using 'compress' (*.Z), 'gzip' (*.gz, *.tgz), 'bzip2' (*.bz2) or 'lzip' (*.lz).
  • RAR archives (*.rar)
  • ARJ archives (*.arj)
  • JAR archives (*.jar)
  • 7Z archives (*.7z)
  • LHArc archives (*.lzh, *.lha)
  • WarpIN archives (*.wpi)
  • RPM packages (*.rpm)

Each of these types of archive support requires specific programs to be installed.

This software is distributed as compressed package. You have to download and manually install it; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too.

Manual installation

Self-installing WarpIN package. See below for download link(s). Install specific programs in PATH or into the same Archive Viewer directory.

You can install the prerequisites with rpm running the following string in a command line:
