I have an admittedly older version of ZipControl here (2.6.4), however, since
moving up to a SMP enabled system I am now hitting up an issue.
My SMP btw means I have a CP2_FP6 system, using the seeded levels of OS2 code. I
did not move up to the 20050811 version of the kernel yet since the FP6 level
stuff appears to be more recent.
OK, so here is the issue: at certain times when opening a ZIP file (by directly
clicking on such a ZIP file and using the WPS associations) the ZipControl app
opens up, the main window states 'Retrieving list of files in .zip file . . . ',
however, the contents of the ZIP file never actually show up, and the
application window for all purposes appears to be non-responsive.
Eventually (5-10 secs) the main window starts accepting my input, but since no
ZIP contents are available that really just means closing the window down.
I am using 'UnZip 5.52 of 28 February 2005, by Info-ZIP' of UNZIP, and 'Zip 3.0
(July 5th 2008)' of ZIP.
Both ZipControl & UN/ZIP programs are flagged as SINGLE_CPU using the 'execmode'
utility. I have tried both settings (single & SMP), neither one appears to work
I have tried a number of newer/older ZIP/UNZIP programs, all appear to exhibit
the same problem.
Has anyone else seen this? Is there some kind of a fix available for this? I
could not find anything referencing SMP on their web site though....
