How to open ACE files


extract ace file

Open and extract ACE files

PeaZip offers read-only support (extractor / opener) for ACE archives, providing a free alternative utility to WinAce for opening (list/browse content) and extracting .ace archives (unace) under Windows and Linux operating systems - including password protected ace packages.
The software can also convert ACE files to any other write-supported format (i.e. re-pack existing ace file into zip, 7z, etc).

PeaZip supports extraction of ACE archives trough Unace.dll, provided by WinAce author as royalty free (but closed source) component - note for Linux users: UNACE is a 32 bit x86 executable, so on Linux 64 bit systems it requires ia32-libs to extract ACE files.

Due to the closed source nature of the tool, it is provided as separate add-on for PeaZip (other PeaZip project packages only feature Open Source software released under OSI approved licenses), please refer to UNACE Plugin page for instructions about downloading and installing the add-on.

Create / update ACE file

PeaZip support for ACE files is read-only, the application cannot write to .ace file format to create a new file or edit an existing one.

Due the proprietary nature of the ACE file type, no royalty free Open Source way is known to be provided for implementing creation or modification / update of existing ace containers.

How to convert ACE files

As ACE format is proprietary, and not update in recent years, it is a good practice to convert legacy .ace archives in a mode modern, widely supported, and actively developed format, possibly not encumbered by patents, like 7Z and ZIP.

Converting ACE file to any format is possible using the integrated file converter procedure, clicking Convert button, which extracts and then re-pack input archive files, optionally keeping or deleting original archives.

More generally this makes possible to convert any type supported for reading (e.g. 7Z, ACE, ARC, CAB, PEA, RAR, TAR, ZIP, ZIPX...), even mixed extensions at once, into any write-supported format (7Z, ARC, PEA, TAR, ZIP...), either converting each single input archive to a single output archive, or consolidating all input files into a single output archive in the new format.

Work with encrypted ACE archives

To extract an encrypted .ace file, enter the password in PeaZip clicking the padlock icon open ace file in the status bar (in the file/archive browser) or below output address field (in extraction or archiving interfaces), or click Tools > Enter password / keyfile in main menu, or press F9 accelerator key.

Encrypted archive content is marked by * sign after filename.

Open ACE files

To open an ace file, to browse and search content inside the archive, using PeaZip as opener / extractor application

  • double click the ace archive, if file extension is associated with the PeaZip (default)
  • if ace file type is not associated with PeaZip, right-click on the archive and use system context menu "Open as archive" entry, that will attempt to read any user provided file type regardless file associations

Extract ACE files

Use one of the procedures described below to decompress .ace archives

  • Extract ACE file from the system

    • Select one or more ace archives and use context menu entry "Extract..." to display full extraction screen GUI where to set output path, password, and other options

    • Select one or more archives and use context menu entry Extract here or Extract here (to new folder) for quick extraction with no further confirmation

  • ACE extraction within PeaZip utility

    • Extract button shows full featured archive extraction screen providing access to all options (password, set output path, open output path after extraction, keep or delete original archives, etc) and can send to extraction selected items only

    • Extract all to... button activate a simplified dialog asking for output path only

    • Simply drag & drop desired objects from the application to the system

    • Doubleclick on an archived file to open it in preview mode, i.e. to inspect its content before considering the need for real extraction
