Bounty: 50

I have a tar file that cannot be opened using the command below.

tar.exe -xvf filename.tar

The error given is:

tar.exe: Error opening archive: Unrecognized archive format

However, when I use the UI(WinRAR) to open the tar file, there are no problem. Another thing to note is that other TAR file has no problem being uncompressed using the command above.

Oddly the command works in WIN2008 server but not WIN2016 server.

What is the issue?
