Re: Trouble with some RAR
Hi Nancy. Let me jump in here if you don't mind. I have had such messages in the past. I didn't see your original message but from the description below it sounds familiar. I am not saying I have the solution but perhaps a potential solution. In my experience if the archive is corrupt you are usually told this is the case but it would seem it can't open it at all. It could mean that you are trying to extract the files within multiple subfolders and as windows only allows something like 250 characters in a pathway it might be that you will need to try extracting it nearer your root folder. If the archive isn't buried too deep in subfolders then it is possible the file names in the archive are too long. I suggest you try extracting the files in your download folder and not inside any other subfolder, even better try doing so in the folder that bears your name. Also when you go to the context menu use the option "extract here." This will limit the pathway. If that doesn't work then I don't really know what to say and I am sorry for wasting your time.

Gene, I am using jaws 2018.
I was not able to copy the message, but the following is what it listed:
0 can not open file 'c:users/Nancy new/downloads/downloads/God's Love
Praise and Worship.Rar' as Archive
The only difference from what I originally reported is my word 'IS' that
I used should have been 'AS'. I have no idea what a virtual window is.
