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.
How to remove script scheduling…
If you have set script scheduling and want to cancel this and set to manual, there is no way to delete the scheduled task from within PA. Well, certainly I can delete the task from taskplaner. But, if I select manual instead of script scheduling, the the scheduling options are grayed out and make the user believe that all is set to manual now. This is a little irritating, you should remove the task, respectively, if this can not be done, display a warning/hint.
where are you selecting manual? In latest release we have No scheduling option?
I am with version 11.02.03 and with “scheduling Funktionen” (second last in tree) you see in the right pane, first option below “execute Script” section:
If you select this, a task previously scheduled in taks-manager is not removed!
it should be!!!
(entered it to the bug list, thanks)
this works properly - you need to use close button or run the script for task to be added or remove.
