When I try to open a zip file from Winrar, some times I get an error "No Archive found". But when I open Winrar and navigate to the folder and double click on the zip file, it shows the contents without any error. But it does not happen all the time.

I search around but did not find any solution. This is irritating at times.

Edit: I found that there are spaces in the path of the archive to be opened. It opens the archive correctly if the path has no spaces.

Can it have to do with weird filenames with spaces for example? – Bernhard Jul 13 '12 at 11:49
Does the file name have any unicode characters? – Chris Jul 13 '12 at 12:18
