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.
When adding to a file archive, and selecting for example PA format, strong optimization method, extreme compression. In the Advanced Options section you change to Automatic, EXE Filter and PDF filter . You return to the main section and save the Profile. When you then reload the profile you do not have the Automatic options of EXE Filter and PDF saved there.
I noticed that instead if you change other options they are saved correctly (except for the Filter box values).
Also among the various changes to the advanced options you click the “Calculate RAM usage” button the value seems to be added to the previous one. You can see it for example just by clicking the button twice in a row, the value changes. Edit: actually after many attempts now it seems to write a stable value (it does not change with each click). Maybe a synchronization problem in the calculation?
Used PowerArchivier 2023 but there is the same behavior with the 2022
when i load up with any othjer dialog at start up like tools tiups and that is not in shown on screen for some reason it means i have to click on the task bar and minimise powerarchiver and reopen it to try and get that dialog before i can close that dialog and use powerarchiver.
Shouldn’t this dialog be there in front all the time so you don’t have this fault
tested on two operating systems 2000 and xp and on two differnt computers made by dell.
I dont quite understand - can you outline step by step for me so I can reproduce it? Thanks!
basically if you open powerarchiver and it shows eiher the tool tip dialog or I agree dialog and then click powerarchiver on the menu bar those dialogs dissaapeare and you can’t use powerarchiver. untill you minimise something or click the powerarchiver from the tool/menu bar and then the dialog comes back and you can then click that option so u can use powerarchiver. shouldn’t those dialgs be there perminately untill you click on them
