Easier way to extract .SAR and .CAR files with SAPCAR under Windows

Hi All

http://fireswordblog.blogspot.com/2012/03/easier-way-to-extract-sar-and-car-files.html

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.

Anyway

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....

Thanks
