    Broken, on my Dual 2.0 G5. It keeps complaining of a “bus error” when compressing or decompressing. Are old versions available somewhere?

    Archiving does not work on my Mac. I can see the archive being created but the archive is deleted once the program has finished.

    iMac 2.1ghz, Intel, Tiger 10.4.11

    Tichenor: We are actively trying to resolve that issue. More informations can be found in our forums.

    Robert: Could you give us more informations about the file/folder you are trying to compress (name, path, kind, size), and the compression settings you specified in 7zX?

    I cannot open password protected 7z-files with this new version.
    can someone upload the old version?

    Here’s what I did: I expanded your DMG into a folder on my Desktop. I then dragged the folder on to the 7zX application icon. For the options, I left it set to the default NORMAL compression and changed nothing else. During compression there is an error but it does not seem to be logged anywhere. I also went into the folder and dragged the contents to 7zX but that didn’t work either. I also attempted to drag a few word documents as well; same result. For kicks I installed the program onto my iBook which runs 10.3.9. Same result. I also tried fooling around with the compression settings but got the same result — archive is not created.

    Is the program output logged anywhere so I can view it and possibly send it to you? I just hope that I am using the program correctly. Maybe I am missing something.

    Robert: I am positive that you are using 7zX the way it is supposed to. You are simply most likely expecting the same problem other people are talking about.

    frisch: Now that’s most almost impossible. As long as you can decompress non-protected archives, encrypted archives are also going to work.

    Olivier Puaud: What are you trying to do exactly? Maybe you selected the “Create Self-Extracting Archive” checkbox?

    Not working on my Intel Macbook Tiger 10.4.11 !!! Tried everything but still doesn’t work.

    7zX 1.7 works quite fine here (PowerBook G4, 10.5.2), but keeps telling me to update to … 7zX 1.7!

    Andreas: You should try the alternative version that can be found on the 7zX product page.

    Sami: Just found out what was causing that, fixed in 1.7.1 betas. :)

    I downloaded this application to my Mac (Snow Leopard) and couldn’t keep it installed (I’m not tech savvy, so bear with me) – It doesn’t show up in my Applications, so if I want to use it, I have to go to the DMG in my Download Folder and reinstall it. Anyway, because it seems to disappear and I really don’t need it (I thought I did), I’m OK with being unable to keep it when I install it. Now to the point – ‘7zX’ now appears in my Sidebar in Finder under Places and beside a Document icon. It does nothing when I click on it and it doesn’t show up in Preference Settings, so I can’t Uncheck it from my Sidebar. I can’t drag it off the sidebar either. Can you tell me how I can remove the icon and ‘7zX ‘ from my Finder sidebar?
