PA 2007 new installer bugs



  • The new installer has numerous bugs:

    First, that installer ignores the following options unchecked via the “Additional Install Options” dialog:

    • “Add PowerArchiver icon to the Start Menu”
    • “Associated PowerArchiver with recommended formats”
    • “Enable PowerArchiver Queue”

    Even though I had the above options unchecked, PowerArchiver performed them anyways.

    Additionally, the installer failed to add a PowerArchiver program group.

    WinXP SP2 + PA 10.00.14



  • Confirming all of the above. Plus, the config.msi directory is locked and cannot be deleted.


  • Alpha Testers

    I first installed over the previous beta and when it had finished I had a duplicate PA icon on my desktop and a duplicate PA starter icon in the taskbar.

    None of my backup scripts would work either. Tried making a new one and that didn’t work either.

    Luckily I had taken an image of my drive before hand.

    A fresh install seemed to be alright.

    thanks, we will be checking it out…



  • After every new installation. The queue is not active. Even when the queue checkbox is selected.

    So you are saying PAStarter is not running after installation - Enabling Queue means setting and running PAStarter?



  • PAS is running after install. But when I extract, the queue is not used. When I look at the options. It says that the queue is enabled. But It doesn’t work.

    doesnt seem to be related to thread? Can you please open new thread and have more details (about archive, about how you are extracting files).

    thanks!



  • I think it is related. Because It works fine before install. After every new installation, I have to reconfigure the queue.

    It’s very simple.

    1. install PA. Enable all the checkboxes.
    2. Extract a spanned rar
    3. Extract a Spanned rar

    Now you will see that both files will be extracted at the same time. Instead of the queue

    If I look into the configuration, the option enable PA queue is checked.
