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.
PA RC 10.20.13 SKIN's CURRUPT!
I would put the RC on hold for a bit longer, after both a fresh install and upgrade then going to skins, selecting the available Longhorn & MyPA skins on each one the following happened!
I lost complete control over all buttons and wasnt able to revert back to a default skin. I had to use the Repair feature to force the default skins back. then go into the configuiration screen - skins and clear Interface and toobar default locations as they were still showing
MS Windows XP Pro SP2

redownload RC and try again… thanks!
Spywolf, you and your team are good! RC2 works fine tried running all skins in multiple sessions and none currupted.
