    i can't extract .iso with 7za but i can with 7z File Manager. i thought 7za cmd can extract iso? no?  i have multiple script and batch file that i would like to use 7za cmd but i just cant extract .iso file using 7za. im using 7za 9.18 download from here. Then i compile using x64 MSVC 2010 still same.

    My OS: Windows 7 x64 ultimate.
    Command line use: 7za x FILE.iso and 7za x FILE.iso -oFolder
    Error: Can not open file as archive

    most of the iso i have created with microsoft oscdimg with command line:
    oscdimg -b<BOOTIMAGE> -h -j1 -m -l<LABEL> <SOURCE> <OUTPUT.iso>
    oscdimg -b<BOOTIMAGE> -h -u2 -m -l<LABEL> <SOURCE> <OUTPUT.iso>
    oscdimg -h -j1 -m -l<LABEL> <SOURCE> <OUTPUT.iso>

    is there any specific command line to use when extract .iso file?
    mostly i will use 7za x file.zip or file.7z

    Hello everyone,

    7za.exe does not support ISO-files. To find out which archives are supported by 7za.exe type:

    7za i
    

    on a command-line. To handle ISO-files use 7z.exe with 7z.dll in the path or in the same folder as 7z.exe.

    Best regards!
