GetViewInfo hangs indefinitely when opening .tar.gz file using .NET

Hi,

I know tar.gz is not listed as one of the supported formats, so I don’t expect it to work (although it would be nice), but I do expect a FileTypeNotSupportedException to be thrown.

Using the GetViewInfo sample with version 20.1 and the attached file, it seems to hangs indefinitely.

@Clemens_Pestuka,

This issue is resolved in version 20.2. We’ve added support of gzip archives as well.

Thank you for fixing the hang :slight_smile:

It’s not hugely important for us, but I noticed that the content is missing/incorrect when rendering a gzip archive.
Render GZip Archive.zip (15.0 KB)

I does render the archive name properly “Compressed Word File.gz” but shows the content is “Compressed Word File”. If you open the archive, you will see the content is actually “Portrait_Landscape.docx”
