PA 2007 b7



  • Had beta 6 installed and working fine on Vista x86. Uninstalled b6 and installed b7. Install never finishes it just hangs. If I look in the PA directory all the files are there and PA 2007 b7 works fine. If I cancel or end task on the installer it removes all the files in the PA 2007 directory. Anyone else having this problem or have a work around so the install finishes. Tried running the install in compatibility mode but that didn’t work either.

    Thanks

    Check permissions of PowerArchiver key in HKCU?

    Someone reported it long time ago, I have no idea why would it change.

    Did you restart the computer after uninstall of B6?

    thanks,



  • Permissions are ok and I did restart PC after b6 uninstall. The b7 install just won’t finish. Like I stated, everything does get installed and it works ok it just dosen’t finish. I tried to do a shutdown without ending the install hoping the machine would just restart and the files it installed would be there but when I do the shutdown the program uninstalls the files before the machine shutsdown. Is there a way to manually remove PA 2007? Maybe something in the registry isn’t getting removed.

    Thanks

    p.s. just to confirm - permissions for PowerArchiver registry key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PowerArchiver

    thanks,



  • Fixed it. Did a manual serch in the registry for PowerArchiver and there were about 10 keys for PA under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT with no permissions. removed all keys pertaining to PA and b7 installed no problem.



  • Thanks……
