Same problem here on W7, passwords are tested none will work: error code 24 appears.
Where can I download version 8 B1?
Why isn't there mouse-flavoured cat food?

Just so you know this issues occurred (same password) in V8B1 also.

Hi,

I can confirm that there is a problem decrypting downloads in the beta versions of V8. The problem gets worse, if the list of encrypted files grows in the unpacker list.

The problem seems to be in calling the RAR extraction library and not waiting for the error code it returns (may be because it is called concurrently?).

The algorithm takes the downloaded file, if it is encrypted, and tries every password in the password manager list. The library answers with "error code 24" most of the times, because the password is wrong. On the correct password the library returns no error code - but Newsleecher does not react on that, but tests the next password. So the file remains unpacked.
