PA2007 What do you think?



  • Since the 1st Beta release of PowerArchiver 2007 there have been many Forums, comments and amendments to the new Ultimate Achiver!

    However, we have yet had a poll to allow us all to vote on our thoughts on the programs success and wither or not we as users, customers or potential customers think so far.

    Taking into consideration we are still in Beta Please feel free to vote and add your comments about the new version.

    “Please note that this is for technical issues but more for us to speak freely on our experience and thoughts about PA2007”

    p.s. its too many options… usually good poll is 3-4 options total.



  • I know, I was going to host a pile of questions on my site and then send it to you guys. However, this was the quickest method!

    Its a shame your poll doesnt allow you to have multiple quesions.
    e.g
    1.Do you like the look and feel of PA
    a. DAM RITE!
    b. Its ok i guess
    c. ow? has it changed!

    2. What do you think of the features?
    a. What dont i think!! its great!
    b. Versitile
    c. It has features? where are they then?

    you are priviledged, such tasks are below your standards :-).



  • I see what you are doing Spywolf! using reverse Psychology in order to make others feel they are above completing polls on PA and that such tasks are obtuse to their standards.

    But from looking at the poll so far 85% of users beleave the new version of PA Rules! with 42% who prefer the new style Menu’s! I would guess that that number should go up once they learn how to use the ribbon menu.



  • By the way, Sir Richard…
    Where’s the
    "Don’t use GUI - I do everything via shell extensions" option 😕
    {Also aren’t polls invalid when there is no “Just Drink Beer” option 😃 }



  • I just downloaded and installed the 10 beta 7, to things immediately jumped out at me, 1, the new layout of the toolbar, change it to use the old which i prefer, and the size of the .dat file to create 7-zip sfx files at 294kb, jeez, and thats compressed using UPX, i was expecting something in the region of 60-70kb upx compressed, due to the fact the 1 i’m currently using is only 47kb, note by changing the upx packer to Upack reduced to 203024 bytes, Upack is also freeware, sorry i just couldnt help myself to re-compressing the .dat file.
    I believe you could make the 7-zip dat file smaller without recompressing it.

    Upack by Dwing available here, http://www.wex.cn/dwing/mycomp.htm#upack and it comes with a gui to

    whats the link for upack?

    yeah, it is big, and not something we can change easily, 7zip dll itself is 160kb or more and then we are left with interface :-).


  • conexware

    i dont get it? Everyone likes it according to poll… Thats why you dont have poll where 6 answers are positive ones :-).

    There are only 2 negative answers on the poll… And nobody picked them.

    If someone dont likes Office UI…they dont have to use it :-).

    We probably got around 100 emails so far on people liking it, and so far got 1 negative email, so ratio is good.

    Not really, it is hard to expect anything but mostly good answers on PowerArchiver forums, since people here like…PowerArchiver:-).

    It is hard to expect that people who visit daily dont like it :-).



  • if u look at my previous post spywolf i added the webpage to Upack, there are 2 gui’s for it, winUpack is standard and UPO is for running it through the numbers, to get the best size, itstead of doing it manually
    for the 7-zip dat file, it would be 3,47 with a filesize of 202924 bytes for the smallest size, talking of filesizes, wouldnt it be possible for you to modify a sfx file already made as small as possible without compression, add info to that.

    you have to consider that we have to have full interface. When we modified 7zip sfx, we couldnt add all the features we wanted, without size going up. And more important was that we found out that modified sfx was slower than using dll, which is why we moved to dll.

    It is mostly for distributing files that are large - larger than 10-15 MB compressed, so extra 150kb for interface doesnt really matter…


  • conexware

    we did try upack, but for reason that escapes me now, we decided un upx implementation… could be false positives or some incompatibility, not sure anymore.



  • What are you saying?? that I fixed the poll??? 😉

    I am discusted! after all I am an honorable “Sir!”

    huhh fixing polls!..…
