Ciritical: Power Archiver 2010 & Total Commander, odd extracting behaviour



  • Hello,

    I have a very curious problem with PA 2010b3 and Total Commander. Dragging files from an archive and drop them in the panel of total commander works only even times!!!

    The first time the files are extracted but they are all of zero size. The second time the extraction works. The third time zero size files. The fourth it works and so forth!

    This behavior is reproduced to other computers!

    Version 2009 works just fine.

    !!!



  • this is easily replicated on windows 2000 the problem is powerarchivers end as other archivers work ok

    If you drag and drop an file from an archive onto total commander it works first time delete it try again and it comes up as o in size regardless of size of file and delte it and then drag it to total commander and it copies ok.

    Then delete it and open another archive and drag a different file into total commander from a different archive and it shows 0 in size delete that and then try the same file again and it is correct. delete that and try again same file and hay presto o in size delete that and try again and it is the same size as it should be.

    This indicates that there is a major bug in powerarchiver when it sends files to total commander no other archiver has this problem except ultimatezip. which must mean it is a delphi programming error as both programs use the same programming language.



  • This is something introduced in Power Archiver 2010, since 2009 works flawlessly.



  • then it could be something to do with the way pa updates itself when extracting files to total commander as no other archiver has this problem

  • this is not a file manager specific as it happens in directory opus and powerdesk 7

    when will a fix be made?

    tested with all known file managers and fails to work properly needs urgent fixing



  • I am seeing this behavior, too. PA 11.50.41 (is that beta 3?) and XYplorer 7.90.0146.

    I cannot get it to repro when dropping to Explorer. Also, it’s not necessarily every other time (I don’t think), but it is about one half the times I get the zero-length files.

    Should be fixed in upcoming RC1 🙂

    Please check when it comes out and thank you for your reports



  • It seems that it is fixed in the RC.
