Hi. The “Move” Action seems to be Not Working when used in the Tool – Batch Archive.
Using the Options – Configuration – Compression Profiles ---- I created a Profile with the Action of Move. Also set were Zip, and Method Deflate.
When I use the Tool - Batch Archive – It appears to me that the Action Move does not Move the compressed files (basically add to zip, and delete the added file from original location on the same disk). Zip file(s) are created and look ok.
Typically I on the Batch Archive process – I have selected options to use a Profile with the Move Action.File’s Current Folder Group files from same folder into same archive Add subfolders to separate archives
My PowerArchiver version is 21.00.17 .
Can you reproduce ? – Or do you need additional details or information?
I’m running PA 21.00.17 64-bit on a 64-bit i7 desktop with W10 Pro, latest version. This 32gb of installed RAM.
As I use the PA pbs system for a number of scheduled archiving operations throughout the day, PA Starter is set to load and run at system startup.
In the course of trying to identify some causes of slowness and bottlenecks in other processes, I notice that PA Starter (PAS) always runs at between 11% and 15% of CPU (see screenshot), usually at about 12-13%. This is by far the highest demanding process on the system, as shown by Task Manager. In Performance Monitor, PAS Average CPU is 8.32, with every other process at less that 1 i.e. in decimal places only.
Task Manager also shows PAS Power Usage as “Very High”, and is the only process shown thus.
I have looked again at the information about PAS at https://wiki.powerarchiver.com/en:help:details:powerarchiver_starter, which was last modified in 2016. The article states a low memory usage for PAS of 784k, which is fair enough, but it is the large CPU overhead which is of concern.
It is of course possible to change the PAS priority, but this has no effect on CPU overhead.
However, is it possible to change PAS, which is required only at intervals to initiate PA scheduled tasks, from consuming so much system resource for every moment of the day?
i just registered my own copy and i need some help to set it…
if i set the ‘configuration>shell extension>open folder after extracting’ checkbox, after decompress an archive is opened the file manager on that folder but… if somebody is using a different file manager how to open XYplorer or Directory Opus for example and NOT the MS file manager?
consider this as a feature request also if not available within the 2022 version
I am looking for a way to stop the UAC elevation prompt when running Powerarchiver. In an old post about PA 2019, someone asked this and got a response to uncheck “all users” at the prompt but I am not seeing where one can do this. It definitely seems like the way to go though as if I click on “More Details” at the prompt I see that it is trying to run “_pautil.exe /paassociate /allusers /my(long binary string)”. Can you let me know? Thanks.
PS I tried renaming _pautil.exe and this worked, but I don’t know what the consequence of doing this may be so I would like to do this properly, thanks.
Just a question is Ashampoo zip pro 4 built by Powerrachiver as it is very similar and uses the pae encryption.
Here is the email…

Could you assist me with this?
Can I use my current licenses with MacOS?
If not, can I transfer a license to MacOS?

There would be many of us with Intel Processors.
and they have their own optimized zlib algorithm, which can result in more efficiency if used combined with their hardware processor.
Can we get the same Functionality Under Hardware Acceleration Feature?
Zlib is not the only feature that intel has included with their processor, there’s many, which if combined can result in efficient and better compression ratios.
With PowerArchiver context menu enabled, it is crashing Windows 10 File Explorer when right-clicking on the Default User junction in C:\Users. Had 2021 installed, updated to today’s 2022, still getting same crash. Must have Hidden files and folders set to Show, and Hide protected operating system files cleared in File Explorer Options|View.
Windows 10 Enterprise Version 21H2 (OS Build 19044.1708) (64-bit)
PowerArchiver 2022 Version: 21.00.15 (03/2022) 64-bit
PowerArchiver Toolbox Edition Personal English
Disabling PowerArchiver context menu using Autoruns: on the Explorer tab, uncheck PowerArchiver64 under HKLM\Software\Classes\Folders\ShellEx\ContextMenuHandlers and the crash does not happen.
when clciking on powerarchiver update from within powerarchiver we get a windows for the update but it nows sayes script errors. I think it could be due to windows update in windows 10 can you look into it. By pressing cancel it seems to be ok. It seems that the page being displayed as erros on it.
From within PA on the extract popup, buttons are hidden, I must resize the window to get access to the OK/Cancel buttons. Tried on the default notebook screen (Macbook M1 Max 14") as well as on my external monitor (4k).Screenshot_2022-05-12_10-02-10.jpg
Ho già contattato il supporto con il modulo presente qui https://www.powerarchiver.com/it/contact/ da settimane ma non ho ricevuto riscontro e ora che ho aggiornato alla versione 21.00.15 ho notato che il problema persiste.
Quando clicco PDF Encrypt & Sign nel tab Crittografia appare la schemata riportata sotto come se mancassero le funzionalità.
I’ve already contacted support with the form here https://www.powerarchiver.com/it/contact/ weeks ago but I haven’t received any feedback and now that I’ve updated to version 21.00.15 I’ve noticed that the problem persists.
When I click on PDF Encrypt & Sign in the Encryption tab the schematic below appears as if the functionality is missing.
Weird (?) behavior upon dragging to window
I’m using this internal build of PA on WinXP Pro SP3.
Sorry to compare to WinRAR, but that’s what I’m used to.
I often add to existing archives by having the main window in front of me, and then dragging the contents (files and/or folders) of an Explorer window to the archive. When I do this with WinRAR, I get a dialog that prompts me as to how I want the files/folders added. Once I OK that dialog, the archive in the main WinRAR window is updated, and I can see the files/folders I just added. I thought this was how it was supposed to work.
(I’m not being a smart-ass here; I don’t normally use PA, so I’m not sure.)
But when I do the same thing with PA–that is, have an archive open, then drag to it–what happens is that I get a dialog, but when I OK it, a new instance of POWERARC.EXE is opened. I then get a messagebox in the new PA window, saying “[archive name] already exists. Update existing file?” If I say Yes to that (and of course I do), the new PA instance updates the archive and then closes. I’m left with the original PA window, which shows an archive that doesn’t reflect what’s on disk.
The “Reuse PowerArchiver window” option doesn’t affect this behavior. PA does the same thing whether that option is checked or not. (FWIW, I absolutely do not want that option enabled, since I want to be able to open more than one archive at a time.)
I can’t believe this is how it’s supposed to work in PA. Shouldn’t it just update the archive using the existing POWERARC.EXE instance, and then update the archive display afterward?
hm, i need to try it on XP… what kind of archive are you updating? And how are you dragging?
You select file in explorer and drag it to PA window that has archive opened?
It’s a standard ZIP file. I’m just dragging a file from an Explorer window onto the open PA main window (after opening the archive of course).
This issue happens seemingly no matter which ZIP archive I try it on. (It’s not just one screwy archive.)
maybe screenshot of drag and drop window will help? thanks!
i remember something about it 4-5 months ago at the start of testing (someone complained and something was changed), but my memory is not what it used to be (afterall 3 big ones behind the belt), and it works like it should here, so I am thinking it might be some setting that triggers that behaviour.
maybe the best would be to save HKCU\Software\PowerArchiver registry to .reg file, and then reset defaults via Options menu. What happens then? If it works like intended, then send me that reg file zipped to support @ conexware . com.
If it still works like it shouldnt, then post an screenshot of drag and drop window, maybe it will explain few things. I have tested on Win7, Vista, XP and Win2003 server and looks fine everywhere but we might be doing something differently.
After resetting to defaults, it seems to work correctly. I’ve sent the REG file to you.
i knew it was something wacky in the country of denmark :)
I’m in North Carolina! :)
I just found the same thing happens if I click the Add button and use the (advanced) Add window. So it’s not restricted to drag-and-drop.
its due to some option that makes it do so.
ah, got it - Add to Queue option is what is doing that :). Thats why it is separate process.
Maybe set file size minimum for queue much larger so it doesnt work when you are updating just an 100kb file…
if you would like for queue to have more options that will make it more usable for you, write away in wishlist forums. Input is very important and thats how we determine what to put in the future :).
