I found on a old CD a single file, which I created years ago with Speedcommander.

The Story:
I had a huge mpg2-File (something from my TVcard) and packed it into a selfextraction exe (internally its a zip!) - The selfextractingfile was automatically seperated in 2 parts, so that it would fit on two CDs

The problem is, that I long ago extractet the first part, and now rediscovered the second one, but I do not have the original packed first part.

In short

TVfile 1200MB -> 2 CDs:
a) Part 1.exe
b) part 2.ex2

How can I get the date of the second file? Is there any Chance to get it?

1st Solution:

1. Install wine
2. Copy both files onto your HD in one folder
3. Execute the self-extracting file (should be possible with wine).

2nd solution:

Some archive managers, like 7zip, are able to detect archives, even if they are hidden behind executable wrappers like a self-extraction tool.
You can try to unpack the second file (if it was parted so, that it can be opened seperatly) with unzip.

It seems, that the first file is lost, so I will try the second way...
Do you refer to the commandlineversion (p7zip) of 7zip?

No, i've meant 7Zip for Windows including the GUI, but I think you can use p7zip,too.

No Windows tool is needed. Install and use cabextract to extract the files from those 2 executables.
Greetings,
Chris

Ah... right!
Just have forgotten, that those executables are most of the time cabinet files. Thanks slam! I think that cabextract (maybe non-free) should work. If that doesn't work, it could be a rar (extract it with unrar - non-free) or another archive (p7zip).

EDIT: But wait... I think in your case you just need unzip or p7zip if you are really sure that it's internally a zip.

So, I tried some options:

decoing under wine went well, but the file has one error, so the concert seems to have the right sound, but bad video (blury mpg)

I tried cabextract, but that doesn't work:

      Quote:

cabextract teil2pva.exe
> teil2pva.exe: library not compiled to support large files.
> teil2pva.exe: no valid cabinets found

i found another solution. thanks.
I think the problem was, that just in the moment, were the files were seperated, the trasnmission had some failurs (digital sat-artefacts). SO i rpaired the stream with project X, and now ist playing fine Smile

Thanks for everybody helping!
