Behavior with *.pbs files a bug? (PA 2009, V11)

  • Hello,

    when i double-clicked a *.pbs file with version 10
    the dialog opened where i could change the backup-options.
    Then i could start the backup-process manually.

    When i double-click a *.pbs file with version 11
    the backup-process starts immediately, so there is no chance to change the options…

  • In Windows Explorer you should be able to right click the PBS and select ‘Edit’ from the menu. That will open the script for editing in PA.

    Edit and Open (double click) are defined in the registry under: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\PAPBS\Shell

    There are the following keys and commands.

    "C:\Programs\PowerArchiver\POWERARC.EXE" /edit "%1"
    "C:\Programs\PowerArchiver\POWERARC.EXE" "%1"
    ```If you want the default double click to be open the PBS in edit mode just change the entry for Open to be the same as Edit.
    Here is a screenshot after the change to the Open command. _Your path will be different_.

  • OK, its a feature then, not a bug…

    THX! :)
