Hi therube

What did you actually do with the downloaded file? The file I downloaded to contains one file, which is an (Inno Setup) installer .exe named awgg-0.5.0-win32.exe.

I used both, AS 2.54 and 7-Zip 9.20 / 15.14 and none of them find the files you got.

Looks more like this is the contents of awgg-0.5.0-win32-portable.7z. This archive contains entries in it's directory as follows (as seen by 7-Zip's 7za)
Date      Time    Attr         Size   Compressed  Name
------------------- ----- ------------ ------------  ------------------------
2016-02-11 20:05:31 D....            0            0  awgg-0.5.0-win32-portable\
2015-10-01 16:11:12 D....            0            0  awgg-0.5.0-win32-portable\languages\
2016-02-08 19:52:56 .....       297050       829830  awgg-0.5.0-win32-portable\complete.wav
...
and even the 7-Zip GUI file manager shows an empty folder for the first entry

So, I'd say it's a bug in the software that generated the 7z, or maybe in 7-Zip itself.

Edit: now, when I look a second time at your screenshot, it becomes obvious that there is a mistake in your denoting the downloaded file, so the initial question was unnecessary.

Guess I wasn't too clear on that.
One the download page, Windows:, they have both an .exe.7z "installer", & a -portable.7z.
It was the latter that I downloaded [Descargar] (& the 32-bit version at that), awgg-0.5.0-win32-portable.7z.
and even the 7-Zip GUI file manager shows an empty folder for the first entry
Looking (again) with the [7-zip] command-line, & now see that also.

Code: Select all

   Date      Time    Attr         Size   Compressed  Name
------------------- ----- ------------ ------------  ------------------------
2016-02-11 14:05:31 D....            0            0  awgg-0.5.0-win32-portable\
2015-10-01 10:11:12 D....            0            0  awgg-0.5.0-win32-portable\languages\
Seemingly the "no-name" directory, should be the parent, or something like that.
So, I'd say it's a bug in the software that generated the 7z, or maybe in 7-Zip itself.
OK.

And now running the (7-zip) GUI, I see it also see's the same.
Only difference is that 7-zip only traverses that "directory" once (& shows it as awgg-0.5.0-win32-portable.7z\awgg-0.5.0-win32-portable\\, double slash) where Salamander would traverse it unending (presumably).
