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
PA2009 refresh issues
I noticed when I use the office ribbon, the top of the window tries to exposes the default window XP titlebar.
I can reproduce it when I first load it and move the cursor to the top of PA2009 pro 11.00.45 (07/2008), when you resize the window too small (ribbon is gone), you can’t really resize it back until you close and reopen it.
it might be that your graphics card is not fast enough to repaint the buttons?
what OS and graphic card are you using?
I can reproduce this only when using standard windows drivers on Win2000 (which means very bad graphics performance)
I can tell you, it’s not the computer. I have an AMD Athlon64 X2 4400, 2gb of ddr400, geforce 6000 series. I have no issues on refresh rates on any other programs including windows XP.
Cannot reproduce this on XP. Anyone else?
I also do not repro this on WinXP SP2.
I have found that often these types of display artifacts are often fixed by updating the display device driver or by going into the ‘Troubleshooting’ tab of the display adapter’s control panel settings and reducing the ‘Hardware acceleration’ setting.
please check with beta 4 now avail. through web update and let us know if this has been improved.
