      added instead file type value automatically if it is empty
ver. 3.1.2
    - now plugin can open file from file list if file is present on disks and 
      file list contains full file name. In other words if plugin can find the file
      on disks it will open the file. Plugin emulates extraction of the file from
      archive by copying this file to temporary dir which was provided by Total Commander.
      After that plugin stops its work. The Total Commander opens the file and checks its
      status. When this file will be closed Total Commander will delete it from the temp
