It's an unusual and unexpected parsing method. And still, the prepended path needed to consist of zero or two double quotes, but never of one given the parameter -ap"". Since -ap"Program Files" works as expected, contrary to documentation, -ap"" should also. But this is actually the wrong place to complain about it...

Thanks for fixing.

I am not a programmer or a console master, I just translate Eugene's answers from Russian into English.
You say you have fixed it - is the fixed Salamander version available for download? Thank you again.

Unfortunately. some problem is still here!
I am using latest versions - Altap 3 beta 1 PB87x86 and Winrar 4.20.
Here how it goes.
If I add a file to an existing archive without any folder in that archive, everything is fine.
If there is a folder in the archive, and I add a file to that folder, then that file can no longer be deleted from that folder in the archive by Salamander.
For example, I have file.doc and archive.rar with a folder 'Folder' inside the archive. I move file.doc into Folder by Salamander, and now the file is there in that folder inside archive.rar. But if I press 'delete' that file inside archived folder, Altap says ' No files to be deleted'. What is more - if I now open archive.rar in Winrar itself, it shows two folders: 'Folder' with all old files in it, and '/Folder' with just only File.doc in it (added by Salamander). So, that slash is obviously wrong deed, as there still is some error in Salamander's rar-packing string.

One more little update:
when adding files in folders into archives using F6, i.e. 'delete after archiving', then AS does not delete those folders, only files in them - empty folders remain on disk. That, as well as mentioned '/Folder' error, refers to both 2.54 and 3.0 beta. I hope that is a correctable little bug, and not a feature :)
