Easier way to extract .SAR and .CAR files with SAPCAR under Windows
We all know that there is no GUI for SAPCAR so far.
It would be a lot easier if there was a DDL library or so, to write a program GUI.
I found out some people made this thing working with manipulating the registry.
Well it is OK, but I found a easy & better solution for me:
1. Get SAPCAR.EXE and put it in c:\windows\system32 (or any other folder that persists in the default windows paths)
2. In the same folder make a file SAPCAR_e.BAT with the following contents:
SAPCAR.EXE -xvf %~sf1
3. You are ready, all you have to do is make CAR and SAR files open by SAPCAR_e.BAT.
Right click on such a file and set that in the Properties window.
Result: Now when you double click a SAR/CAR file it will extract in the same folder
Advantage: If you want to upgrade SAPCAR all you have to do is replace the SAPCAR.EXE in c:\windows\system32
Today I made this post in my blog.
Does anyone know a better, comfortable way to do that. Is there any GUI for SAPCAR.EXE.
Just wanted to share some thoughts....
