I had a feeling damn unicode (incompatibility with DOS) was holding back a modern variant (ie, version 4 or 5 of unrar.exe). Just map to the current codepage for filename translation and be done with it. We don't need unicode for DOS at all! At least to me it seems bloated when compared to 8-bit ASCII.

If you can accomplish this using dummy unicode-ASCII translation code, you will have greatly extended the functionality of RAR which should have universal decompression support (DOS, Win32, Win64, Linux, UNIX, etc, etc) in its modern versions!

By the way: Your compile of 3.93 works very well for me and is appreciated.
Sorry to hijack the thread.
