[Win7] Different extract behavior context menu vs. open

  • Hi,

    System specs:

    • Windows 7 Professional RTM x64 (MSDNAA version, German)
    • Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 (2x 2.66GHz)
    • 4GB RAM
    • PA 2010 PRO, Version 11.60.10 (08/2009) English w/ International reg. code.

    I’m currently dealing with several splitted and password protected 7zip archives (filename.7z.001 - filename.7z.00X).

    filename.7z.001 is recognized as a “general” archive regarding the shown icon.

    If I perform a right-click on it and choose “Extract here” PA quits with an “invalid archive” error:

    But if I perform a double click, PA opens the archive and recognizes it as a valid password protected 7zip archive and I can extract it.

    Hey H4andy!

    Did you restart your computer after installing that version of PA? If not, please do so and give it a try.

    Also, please let us know the creation/modification date that you have for PASHLEXT.DLL
    Found in C:\Program Files\PowerArchiver


  • Hi,

    I’ve rebooted several times and I even tried to reinstall PA.

    Here’s the file info:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\PowerArchiver\PASHLEXT.DLL

    Thank you.

    And which settings did you use to create the 7z file?

  • Hi,

    They were created using the “original” 7zip application (v4.65 I guess, Windows XP):

    (click to enlarge, Sorry only in German)

    I think the most important settings:
    Ultra/LZMA, Splitted, Password encrypted incl. encr. filenames using AES.

    i think it could be that it wasnt fixed in 64bit shell, we are looking into it.
