While using CkZip and CkZipEntry's unzipToString to open the docProps/custom.xml from a Microsoft Word document, I noticed that the last character in the Xml is missing for some reason.

The code is somewhat like this:

CkZipEntry *zipentry = zip.GetEntryByName(_T("docProps/custom.xml"));
const char *charXml = zipentry->unzipToString(0, _T("utf-8"));

The character that is missing is the ending ">" of the "<Properties>" node.

My environment is VC++ 11 and Chilkat v4 (obviously) in win32 mode.

Unfortunately there are too many other changed in the pre-release for me to easily test it. I would have to make too many other changes only to test this or create a simple console application. I am considering going with the second alternative so that I always have an almost empty project, where I can test these types of changes.

Hmm, I decided to try it anyway in my project, but while testing I notice that CkZipCrc::FileCrc() suddenly returns 0. Has this class been deprecated in favor of CkCrypt2?

No, this was a temporary error introduced in the pre-release that has not yet been released. I made the fix and will upload a new build later and will post here when it's ready.

I uploaded the new builds to the same URL as before. This fixes the FileCrc problem..

I have responded with an answer only to format code. It would be nice if comments also supported a little bit of formatting.

Now I am suddenly faced with another problem while getting the ZipEntry to process:

    DllDate: Apr 10 2013
    UnlockPrefix: XXXXXXXX
    Username: XXXX:XXXXXX
    Architecture: Little Endian; 32-bit
    VerboseLogging: 0
    filename: docProps/custom.xml
    File not found in zip archive

The code worked fine in 9.4.0:

CkZipEntry *entry = zip.GetEntryByName(_T("docProps/custom.xml"))

The entry above is null/empty, but it does exist in the zip file. Here is the zip content as XML:

    <dir name="_rels">
    <dir name="word">
        <dir name="_rels">
        <dir name="theme">
        <dir name="media">
    <dir name="docProps">

The fix for the GetEntryByName problem has been uploaded to the same URL.

Note: This is a problem that existed only in the pre-release of the new version (v9.4.1). These issues are due to the fact that significant internal work on the Zip class has taken place, namely to support ZipX and to eliminate the need for temp files, as well as certain performance improvements -- such as when opening large zip archives.

Ok, I will wait to test this as well as SendRate callback in CkHttpProgress until 9.4.1 is close to completion.

I'm facing the same issue: unzipToString is missing the last character.

But the download links above are not working. Where can I get the fixed version for .NET 4.0?

Looks like Chilkat just released the newer version and that's why the links above no longer work. All is well :o)
