Bug: files without extension not extracted
Windows Vista Ultimate 32-Bit
Files without an extension, such as are common in Unix-style tar.gz files, are not automatically extracted by Powerarchiver.
They have to be manually extracted.
what format of archive?
GZipped Tarball (.tar.gz)
I’ve tried a couple, and in all cases “extract” (extract all) skipped the files without extension.
I first noticed it in a few of the MinGW packages (http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=2435), then also in other tarballs.

I tried this by creating a .tar.gz file containing multiple text files (just one file with no extension) - worked fine
So I went to sourceforge (your link) and tried with
wget-1.9.1.tar.gz - also worked fine.
Both cases I double click the .tar.gz file (to open in PA) then click on Extract Toolbar Button (extract all is checked by default) - [Modern Toolbar].
Are you doing different procedure?
Note: I have PA 10.20.rc1 (10.20.08).
Tried the same package, same problem.
Then did an uninstall and reinstall of PA (wiping also all settings)… seems to have fixed it.
Cancel this report. If I run into it again, I’ll repost here.
