    Hi…

    I am using Vista32 Business SP2 and 7-zip 9.13. Earlier, I commented on an existing thread that 7-zip hangs extracting from a broken zip file.

    What I found was that it does not hang if I use the extract button, it just reports the error. But if I extract a file from it by dragging the file to the desktop, then 7-zip hangs.

    This is also true for a multipart rar file with ine of the part files corrupted.

    This is also true for a password protected rar file. The password prompt window appears, but I can not type in it.

    In all of these cases, I had to use the task manager to terminate 7-zip.

    Thanks,

    …Karl

    So the simplest way I can reproduce this is open a password protected zip file and drag something from within that zip file to the desktop. At that point, a window pops up asking me for a password, but 7-zip is hung and I can't do anything with it…except kill it with the task manager.

    How can I help track down why this is happening?

    Thanks,

    …Karl

    Only mouse doean't work in that case.
    You can use keyboard.

    I just confirmed that in my test 7-zip still responds to the keyboard; only the mouse does not work.

    Is it possible to make the mouse work in the next release?

    Thanks,

    I don't know how to fix it.

    The same happens for me.  Not a big issue though.

    It will cause cpu useage up,so it's a bug.it's simply to solute,just add a monitor,when detect drag and password required,break pause.when password typed completed,continue.

    Seems that this bug is still here in the current version (9.20).
    I almost got crazy trying to click the button until I noticed that pressing [Enter] made 7zip to start the extraction. Not much of a problem once you know it, but if you are not able to fix this, you may consider removing the buttons and show a plain text field.
