Since 2.2, you don't need anything special to compare ZIP, ECMerge contains a converter for ZIP files.

Here below are several converters settings you can use to expand ZIP, RAR, 7Z archives and compare them. You can define your own converters using third-party software.

Using gzip

Name GZIP extraction
Pattern *.gz;*.gzip
Application

C:\Program Files\Ellié Computing\Merge\converters\gzip-conv.bat
(your location may be different)

Arguments $(input) $(output)

Using WinRAR

Name RAR extraction
Pattern *.rar
Application

C:\Program Files\Ellié Computing\Merge\converters\unrar-conv.bat
(your location may be different)

Arguments $(input) $(output)

Using 7 Zip

Name 7Z extraction
Pattern *.7z;*.zip;*.tar;*.tgz;*.tbz;*.rar;*.cab;*.arj;*.rpm;*.deb;*.chm
Application

C:\Program Files\Ellié Computing\Merge\converters\un7z-conv.bat
(your location may be different)

Arguments $(input) $(output)

The C:\Program Files\Ellié Computing\Merge\converters\gzip-conv.bat, unrar-conv.bat, un7z-conv.bat batches assume that you installed gzip, WinRAR and 7-Zip in C:\Program Files. If you wish to install them in another location, you can update these batches.
