Pae files and update



  • When I encrypt a xls file without the compress option, the updating of the xls file doens’t work. When I Use the compress and Encrypt it updates.

    1. Encrypt a xls file
    2. open the pae file.
    3. double click on the xls file
    4. change something in the xls file
    5. save the xls file
    6. close xls file
    7. PA should ask to update the pae file. it doesn’t ask it. So the changes have not been saved

    Updating PAE files is not implemented. Will be for 9.1.

    Thanks!



  • Thanks…

    But I tried today to also do it with a pae file that has a zip file in it. I nicely get 2 message asking me to update the achives. But also this fails.

    Works fine here if you update an file inside an archive in PAE… What exactly did you do?



  • 1. Compress Encrypt a xls file
    2. open the pae file.
    3. double click on the xls file
    4. change something in the xls file
    5. save the xls file. On my PA the focus is pointed at PA. But i didn’t close the xls yet. PA aks me to update the arhcive because the file has changed.
    6. close xls file
    7. Open the xls again. Nothing has been updated.

    I have tested this on 2 pc’s

    BTW i’m using office 2000 SP3

    Out of top of my head, I will say that since you did not close the Excel, PowerArchiver can not access it - MS Office programs usually mark their files in use as in use exclusivly…. I am not sure if we can make it so it shows you an Warning message when you try to update the file (something it would do if you just tried to add that file as new).

    thanks,
