Is xbmc.executebuiltin("XBMC.Extract()") - broken ? - Voinage - 2008-12-12 01:36
I`ve been trying for bloody hours to extract a rar via xbmc, can someone please either tell me the correct usage or tell me if it cannot be done on atlantis.
I`ve tried Lowercase extract, quotes around the path, single / after Q - just frog.rar, absolute extract path and nothing.....
HELP ME PLEASE !:mad:

on the xbox? if so a large rar may not extract, memory issues.

Edit- Have Fixed the issue.
Xbmc will not unrar a file from the plugins/video folder had to shutil it first.
Onwards to the Voinage all-in-one plugin.

don't know if it still works but iu believe the t3ch installer uses it.
it should only be one / after the q:/ though.

1) you need to use those fugly backslashes. i suspect this was the real issue(?)
2) as nuka said only one slash after q

The issues are with my gradually improving , but slowly, coding.;->

I have similar problem the XBMC.Extract buildin doesn't work anymore for me (I don't get why), I porbably did a change in the script I am working on it that broke it, but O don't see what it could be.
Could you gimme me more detail on what was your issue and more importantly how you solved it?
Thanks a lot!

Nasty piece of work the Extract. I fixed the problem then stopped using it and went for the inbuilt python Zipimport instead.
But for the rar.
it needs direct paths , no virtuals and as spiff and nuka pointed out single slashes.
Also it doesn`t like extracting from virtual directories, if you are having touble try extracting to X:/ then shutil.move it to where you want.

Thanks very much for the information, I gonna have a look at that!
Just checked the path it seems valid, but the extract of a rar still does not work, here is the path for example:
D:\Program Files\XBMC\scripts\Test\Apple Movie Trailers_24-11-08.rar
I also tried:
D:/Program Files/XBMC/scripts/Test/Apple Movie Trailers_24-11-08.rar
But it didn't work either.

Your not developing on the xbox i see.
Set a full debug log to run then try the extract.
It show the error generally where normal debug doesn`t.
It`s probably file permissions- i know i had hell with them.
