Extract here Bug with spanned archive - severe bug



  • If I mark several spanned archives in the explorer and try to use the “Extract here” function of the Explorer contextmenu, PA always says “please open the first part of the spanned archive”, if it tries to open the part of the archive which is not the first part.

    PA should be able to auto. recognize spanned archives, although the opened archies is not the FIRST archive of the spanned archive set like in WinRAR.

    How is this an severe bug? First of all, it only happens in PA 6.xx spanned archives, which have all of the files marked as .zip (which is also why newer zip spanning formats dont), and I PowerArchiver does tell you where the issue is.

    If anything it should go to the wishlist, since it would be an new feature, but hardly an earth shattering bug.

    thanks,



  • thanks for the fast answer spywolf 😉

    It’s not just happens on spanned ZIP archives, also on spanned RAR archives. PA says, where the issue is, but it is still annoying to click away all those dialogboxes, especially if you have selected a large amount of spanned archives.

    What happens when you select only one file/spanned archive?



  • The same.

    If I want to open a spanned archive like

    CR.part7.rar
    CR.part2.rar
    CR.part3.rar
    CR.part4.rar
    CR.part5.rar
    CR.part6.rar
    CR.part1.rar

    I always have to select the first one for the “Extract Here” Command.
    In this case

    CR.part1.rar

    It would be good, if it is uninportant which part you select, that PA can auto. see, that e.g. part 6 and part 3 are part of ONE spanned archive.



  • yes, I second klumy’s request…and guess this is a bug and the thread should be moved to the proper section…

    It was actually planned for 9.0, and was working fine in earlier alpha’s, I will see with Ivan why was it taken out of the final versions… (ability to select any rar multivolume and PA would automatically open first).

    thanks,



  • thank you spywolf !!
