PeaZip add-ons






UNACE Plugin

UNACE Plugin handles browsing and extraction of WinAce's ACE file formatunACE tool and it is needed to open ACE files in PeaZip.
This package is meant to provide free ACE files support as separate plugin since UNACE is released by WinACE as royalty free, but closed source, freeware binaries.
Note for GNU/Linux users: UNACE is a 32 bit executable, so on Linux 64 bit systems it requires ia32-libs to extract ACE files.

UNACE for PeaZip installable

Automatically installs the ACE extractor plugin; can be installed/uninstalled separately from PeaZip

UNRAR5 Plugin (optional, alternative unrar engine)

On Windows and Linux systems recent PeaZip versions use by default the 7-Zip / p7zip 15.06 (or more recent) unrar implementation, which is capable of reading (browsing, extracting) RAR5 format natively, so it is no longer needed to separately install this plugin - which it is still provided only as an alternative rar5 files extraction engine.

UNRAR5 Plugin is meant to open RAR files built with most recent RARv5rar5 format standard file format specifications.
RarLab's unrar is royalty-free, and sources are available, but due to unrar licensing restrictionis unrar free software (licensing terms of source code prohibits making a tool that can create RAR-compatible archives) it is widely regarded is unrar free software? is unrar open source software? by Open Source community to not be OSI-compliant - and consequently needs to be deployed as separate add-on for PeaZip project.

Various icons, logo, images, wallpapers are available in PeaZip resources directory.


SFX modules are used by 7z and FreeArc backends to create self extracting archives.
To use third parts SFX modules extract and copy the modules into "\res\7z" or "\res\arc" folder (depending if the target of the module is 7z or FreeArc) in PeaZip's path and rename them as existing SFX modules, ie. for 7z use 7z.sfx (conventionally, sfx module with GUI) or 7zCon.sfx (conventionally, sfx module with console interface).
Before that you may want to preserve a copy of original PeaZip's sfx modules copying them into another directory of your choice.

7-Zip compatible SFX modules

Extra SFX modules are available from Igor Pavlov's LZMA SDKsfx repository.
