Open Password Protected ZIP

Post by bdearlove »

Good Day,
Using the DVD/USB MicroDicom tool I am looking to have it automatically open a password protected ZIP. I see in the features password protected ZIP is supported but having issues getting it to work. It only seems to see unzipped DICOM files. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

MicroDicom can open password protected ZIP files with DICOM images. When you try to open password protected ZIP file, you have to see a dialog to enter a password.

Thank you but how? I have the ZIP file in my DICOMDIR folder but the USB/DVD version will not open it. Is there a special string in Autorun I should be entering? Thanks.

Zip files are not detected as DICOM files when you use scanning.
You can open zip file with DICOM images in following ways:
- Start MicroDicom, File menu/Open... or File menu/Open zip file...
- via command line mDicom.exe "c:\temp\file.zip"

You can use second option in your autorun file.

Perfect! Thank you. I was also using AES256 which seemed to be causing me a problem also. All working now.
