Can't unpack any files

Post by Markstar » 19 Jul 2017, 10:03

Hi,
I'm new to NZBGet (used SABnzbd before) and I'm having trouble with getting it to work properly.

The most pressing issue is that I changed the path values during the initial configuration for UnrarCmd (to "C:\Program Files\WinRAR\UnRAR.exe" because I didn't realize unrar.exe came with the installation) and SevenZipCmd (to "C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe").

However, now none of the downloads complete and I get the error:

Code: Select all

Unrar: Could not start unpack for XYZ: The parameter is incorrect. 
Unrar: Could not find file "C:\Program
Unpack for XYZ failed
I've tried it with and without quotes.

I would appreciate if somebody could tell me which would be the correct entries for these fields.

Thank you in advance!

The path must be without quotes. If it doesn't work then the path must be incorrect. Are you sure it's "C:\Program Files" and not "C:\Program Files (x86)"?

Anyway try default values:

Code: Select all

UnrarCmd=${AppDir}/unrar
SevenZipCmd=${AppDir}/7z
