Archives not in Recent Documents

  • Archives used to show up in Recent Documents in the Start Menu, now they don’t. I’m using the latest version. Is this something that you have done? Or is s. th. wrong with my Windows?

  • what version of windows do you have. Have you installed any other compression program?

    no problems my end and i have the lastest version with windows 2000

  • Hi,

    Windows XP

    All upgrades and service packs. I have 9.51.02 of PowerArchiver. It doesn’t seem to have worked since the upgrade to ths version. Now I never see Archives appearing in the recently used documnts. Do they only appear if you save the archive? Or should they appear when you just open the archive. Previously they always appeared even if I just opened them.

  • Does anyone know how I can fix this?

    there is probably some way to tell windows what YOU consider as “documents”. I can see the files are listed there, Windows just does not display those extensions. It is something related to WinXP and not PA.

  • As far as I know, Windows XP handles zip files as folders and make its search within zip files too.

    To avoid this you have to unregister the “zipfldr.dll” and, after that, make the PowerArchive association again.

    To unregister (“Start>Run”):

    regsvr32 /u c:\windows\system32\zipfldr.dll

    To register again (default XP):

    regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\zipfldr.dll

    I have done it in my system and all went fine. Make a Restore Point just in case…
