A patch is coming.
Around next wednesday we will release the patch that will fix the context menu behaviour within Windows. This patch will replace the existing zg.exe (the command line module) but it will have a bad downside in terms of compatibility. The patch, in fact, won’t let you convert ZIP into CZIP files from within the Windows context menu. This will happen because we are in the middle of a transition from ANSI to UNICODE system. ZipGenius 6.3.2.3110 hasn’t been upgraded since 2011 and it embeds the older CZIP source code library, which encrypts and decrypts bytes streams using the ANSI character table; the new “zg.exe”, instead, uses the newer CZIP library which is built around the UNICODE chracter table. This means that CZIP archives produced through the new “zg.exe” cannot be read by current and previous ZipGenius versions. The same issue – we call it the “Unicode Disaster” – will affect #ZipGenius  6.3.3 and #ZG  7: they will produce CZIP archives that cannot be read by ZipGenius 6.3.2.X or earlier.
The only useful solution will be to upgrade to ZipGenius 6.3.3 as soon as it will be released.
And that’s not the only problem we have now. If you try to convert a ZIP file into CZIP by using the CZIP2 algorythm, then ZG 6.3.2.3110 will not be able to open it again. We don’t know why, as of now. The only workaround is to encrypt CZIP files by using BlowFish, TwoFish or Rijndael (AES). We have built a “CZIP2 Opener Tool”, a ZGTool that open those CZIP2 archives that ZipGenius can’t. It will be released as a standalone application and together with the update pack containing the patch.
