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.
if you use associate with from opus directory and then choose program on ythe shell extensions and actually click use this program all the time then pa can not over ride this. When will pa beable top override this i have tried on several computers logged in with admionistrator privilages and still no luck.
i have windows 2000 and i do have other archivers installed to checlk this out and they have the same fault i.e winzip so when will pa fix this fault in windows for their program
