LZX decompression

At the moment, i use an emulated Amiga system to decompress this kind of files and it's ok

But i don't know if something Windows related exist to open the .lzx files

I don't see nothing around ..... am i missing something ?

There's UnLZX for Windows and also Total Commander plugins which support LZX.

Some features of LZX and the AmigaFS means that some filenames are not supported under windows (i.e. filenames with the * character in them)

if that's still interesting for anyone, i've a batch to handle LZX Archives within Windows:

@echo off
cd /d "%~dp1"
"%~dp0unlzx.exe" -x "%~1"
if %errorlevel%==1 pause >nul

simply create a unlzx.cmd file with this code in the same folder like unlzx and create a shortcut as drop target or assign the lzx extension with it.

The official Universal Extractor has been abandoned for several years.

There's been several forks, with the most popular being the one PeterK posted earlier: https://github.com/Bioruebe/UniExtract2/releases . That said, even this one hasn't had a release in over a year, but it is constantly getting commits so it's still active.

Generally speaking original sites have the advantage of providing more informations that people like me like to acquaint before downloading and using a tool (user manual, translations, add-ons, faq, etc.). On the other hand, sites like Filehippo concentrate on the EXE files with a mini description.

Sure about the the last line? Shouldn't that be;
if %errorlevel%==1 pause >null

"nul" is correct within windows, otherwise you would get an output file
