PA 21.00.18 running on Windows 7 64 bit.
I made a big .PA file and thought I’d check it was made correctly with Menu / Actions / Test.
a) PA always issues a UAC prompt to do this!
b) PA always says there are many errors in PA files.
WinRAR 5 has a rather useful option in some cases, which is to be able to create an archive by replacing identical files with a reference to the first occurrence (hardlink) within the archive.
In case you choose to convert the file with PowerArchiver to another format, however, the resulting archive does not have all the files. It does not consider those that were present as hardlinks.
If you do a normal extraction of the RAR archive instead, even with PowerArchivier, all the files are extracted correctly.
Running exe files
I have Powerarchiver 2002 running on a win98 box. I made an exe file from a jar file. When I try to run this file from command prompt no errors are thrown up, but nothing else happens either. What am I doing wrong?
Another thing when I write a file name on the textbox “Run command line after extraction”,(say, setup.exe), I get the message “File setup.exe not found”. Can someone guide thru the procedure of making an exe file from a jar file which can run.
thanx and regards,
You are running a little bit old version. Can you please try with newest one - PowerArchiver 2004 v9.00?
Not sure if this is what Ashishroy is meaning but:
Open a JAR archive
Actions - Make .EXE file
Generates error message - “Check to be sure that the Zip file exists” ??
As PA cannot do this, I would have thought that the “Make EXE file” should not be available!?
Eg it is not available for 7zip / BlakHole / Tar.gz files.
The issue will be fixed in next release!
