Email functions not working

  • If I right click any given file(s) and select the “Compress & E-Mail ‘’” option, it doesn’t work. The archive doesn’t even get created, and no email client window opens. (The “Compress To ‘’” function does work.)

    If I right click an existing archive and select “E-Mail it…”, nothing happens (so to speak). I can see POWERARC.EXE being launched with this command line, but no email client window opens:

    "C:\Program Files\PowerArchiver\POWERARC.EXE"  -emailit "C:\path\"
    ```This copy of POWERARC.EXE doesn't show a window, and it exits immediately.
    I'm running the bleedingest-edge version of PA that all the coolest people are running, on WinXP Pro SP3\. Thunderbird is my email client, and it's properly registered as such.

    if you select right click, send to> email, it works i would suppose?

    I just tested and it works with Outlook (we just use 10 year old MAPI functions), i need to download and install tbird to see if i can reproduce it. thanks.

    works on Win7 and latest tbird… need to try on XP tomorrow.

  • In fact, the “Send To” > “Mail Recipient” function was not working. But this turns out to be a Thunderturd problem, not a PowerArchiver problem. They screwed this up in the latest Thunderturd update. Fortunately other users have dealt with this already.

    The solution is to go to this registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\Mozilla Thunderbird
    ```And set **DLLPath** (REG_SZ) so that it points to the full path to **mozMapi32.dll**, _sans_ quotes. (I actually found it will _not_ work if you surround it in quotes.)
    For me, the path to mozMapi32.dll is:

    C:\Program Files\Thunderbird\mozMapi32.dll


    C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\mozMapi32.dll

    My PowerArchiver email functions work fine now.
    Sorry to take your time with this nonsense.
