(I believe)Rar2John needs to know where the archive is to see if it's correct when a possible candidate is found, so I think *some* do need the path if they aren't more local, perhaps on another drive/partition. The colon probably only affects win32. Rar2john is subject to some possible false-positives so perhaps it's more paramount to have the path for that program, I assume in office it would be necessary as well since the files in docx/xlsx etc are in a compressed archive (maybe OLE container) and once the candidate hash/pass is found it has to check to see if that's the right one? I can't follow the source well so that may not be true for either :) -rich
