Settings lost



  • I just installed 11.60.08 via the automatic updater. After installing, I noticed my settings under Configuration > Folders and Configuration > Locations had been reset to the defaults.

    I don’t check those settings frequently, so I don’t really know if the installer screwed them up, or if it happened some other time.

    I just did a repair install of PA and the settings weren’t wiped out. I don’t know what to tell you but I thought I’d report it, even if this report sucks.

    We had to change how some values are stored so they would work in non-english systems, hence few old registry keys were not carried over into 11.60.



  • It doesn’t suck. I can confirm, just did automatic upgrade and whole configuration got screwed up->PA doesn’t even work now. Trying to fix, will report more.



  • OK, here we go. After autoupdate, when PA was supposed to start, I got “Invalid cursor handle” error, followed by exception. Happend for the first time after years with PA, so I was so surprised, I didn’t make a note of it, sorry. PA started anyway but apparently very ill. All UI elements were displayed at once, with everything contained in one window frame (I mean, ribbon was INSIDE of the window, not part of the frame). I downloaded manualy setup again, made repair install and PA started with everything in default (what a pain to set it up again:(). Now it appears to run properly.

    ah, too bad you did anything… it would have helped if you had saved your registry key so we can indentify those keys making trouble…

    what language version are you using?



  • Sorry but I desparately needed to unpack some files. I spent last few hours trying to unrar some archives which are most probably alright but still I’m getting CRC error.😕 That’s actually why I did upgrade.
    I’m using english PA on english W7RCx64 (which probably isn’t supported by PA, I wouldn’t be surprised).



  • I can’t open preview sidebar now (buttons react but no window is displayed) and headers after some resizing can get frozen and PA has to be restarted to make them changeable again. Modern black skin, viewing style Explorer with folders. Also taskbar progress in W7 doesn’t work (it used to, atl. sometimes).
    After the update went wrong before, also registration information disappeared if it is of any importance. Looks to me like whole PA reg. hive got corrupted.

    ok, save your HKCU\Software\PowerArchiver to reg file and send it over to us (zip it) to support @ conexware . com.

    It has nothing to do with unraring or taskbar progress though…

    thanks, got the preview button issue



  • Cool, you’re welcome. That was quick. 🙂


  • conexware

    hopefully if someone else gets the other issue they will email us first :-).

    p.s. no need to reinstall in the future, just use “reset to default” option under Options…


  • conexware

    (even now it will fix that issue with the preview)



  • Will do that. Thanks a lot for help!


  • conexware

    We improved this in the future so first time, these old entries are copied (for future upgraders to 11.6)… :).

    thank you…



  • You’re welcome. That’s even better than warrning or someting, great job!
