WinRAR.exe, WinRAR351StandAlone.exe, WinRAR95.exe, WinArchiver.exe, IconF6E62A552.exe, VSW993A_B609B2C9.exe, VSWA261_0F267AA9.exe, VSWA2AE_4029ED12.exe, VSWACEA_BB1C2D79.exe, VSWB08F_4D27D8CC.exe, VSWC345_FF02A828.exe, VSW8F46_D09C7CDD.exe, VSW8E43_35420794.exe, VSW8A83_002E5E61.exe or VSW83D4_60A25E13.exe are the common file names to indicate the WinRAR installer.

The actual developer of the program is Alexander Roshal. This PC program work with the following extensions: ".7z", ".rar" and ".bz". The size of the latest downloadable installation package is 1.9 MB. The most popular versions of the WinRAR are 5.2, 5.1 and 5.0.

WinRAR extracts files with invalid UTF-8 names inside of ZIP archives, even though their names may include arbitrary text after unpacking.

- Bugs fixes:
a) Doesn't crash when extracting some of the broken RAR4 archives;

b) "Settings/Viewer/Unpack everything for" isn't ignored for files matching "Settings/Archives/File types to open as archives first" masks. "Unpack everything for" has a higher precedence for archived files. Files inside of archive matching "Unpack everything for" masks are processed according to that option even if they are also matched by "File types to open as archives first" masks.
