Can't extact rar 2.9 from command line

  • Nobody/Anonymous


    I'm trying to extract Rar 2.9 files using the command line 7z, version 4.13.  The error says the file is not a supported archive.  An earlier post says that 7z uses a library from that doesn't support Rar 2.9.  However, when I use the File Manager GUI, I am able to extract the Rar 2.9 file.  Am I doing something incorrectly?

    7za x -trar myrarfile.rar

    Thanks for all your help

      you should use 7z, not 7za
      7z x file.rar
