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
Unistalling PA 2009 ?
Hi. I downloaded PA 2009 (XP sp3) and installed it. After I restarted the PC the selfextractor started and installed a fresh version of PA. I tried everything: cleaning the register, cleaning program files, unistall with the program yourunistaller, Installer CleanUp. No matter what I do, when I start the PC the installer starts with installing PA 2009.
Any idea? :confused:

Maybe it’s been added to your startup menus/options :confused:
i have no idea - it is not feature of installer to install PA after an reboot… that feature simply does not exist.
Can you send us an screenshot of that installer?
Maybe you somehow added installer to the startup list? I would look at that… if it starts automatically, it has to be on startup lists - and there are many programs you can use to configure what starts up.
I found in: C:Windows/81373.exe and the same program in my startup folder. I have no idea what it is, but after I deleted it the problem was solved :confused:
Google gave me no answer, so I asume it is something…but what it is???
maybe it is an SFX created by someone using PA, and you thought it was PA Installer? In any case, it is not something from us…
