I can't help you with question 1, 2 and 3.

4. The are one single entry to add to ARCHIVER.BB2, the first in my post.

Other scripts are optional F9 menu items, that are often are faster than Ctrl-F5, but if your are not F9 menu oriented, please ignore.

6. You can download the latest 7z v19. I presume you run x64. So it would be 7z1900-x64.exe. Inside (after installing or unpacking the exe with archiver, whatever you find easier), you'll find these two files.


Just put them in your path, preferably your ZTree dir or ZTTools path.

7z.exe can zip/unzip as much as any other zip utilities but many options. And of course, it also 7z-archive ;-) Since it's console-based, there are no dependency and it's free.
