PA 11.60.23 lost all my shell right click


  • Alpha Testers

    Just noticed that all my right click shell options had disappeared. I had to uninstall PA and do a fresh install before I could get them back. Just a heads up in case anyone else has the same problem.



  • Ouch - I’ve lost my PowerArchiver shell extensions as well.

    I am sure they were there with PA.11.60.20 and have disappeared with web update to PA.11.60.23.

    I have tried toggling the enable shell option; I have modified the options to just use sub-menu but still missing.

    Note: I do not know if they were present before I reset to default for the disk error message problem as I hadn’t tried shell after update. I have also rebooted a few times since the update.

    I have not reinstalled (yet) in case any further checking is needed - can probably last a day or so without shell (but not longer) :p

    Yep tried all that myself, nothing worked.



  • I didnt lose my ext. but they were non-functional after the update. I reinstalled it a second time (download from site) and got the functionality back.



  • Confirm all extensions lost here with release version.

    Toggling the enable shell option failed here too.

    Uninstall and reinstall fixed it.

    check the date on pashell.dll in your PA folder.

    We actually were investingating something similar in RC versions, where it seemed as installer was not replacing shell dll if it was in use and it needed restart/reboot.

    But when we actually tested against it, it seemed to be replacing dlls without restart, even when they were in use (which should happen with Restart Manager in Vista/Win7 but not in WinXP).

    all of you restarted your computers after the update, right? Thanks 🙂



  • No as never had to in the past; i.e. never (ever <g>) got a message box saying I had to.

    what OS?


  • conexware

    well maybe it was not the same issue i am assuming it is, although it seems so… lets see what terry says 🙂



  • I didnt restart. I downloaded and installed on top of the existing and poof! All was well. Win7 Ultimate x86.


  • Alpha Testers

    strange Marc…I tried that but encountered an installation error and it removed the installation files once again leaving me with my existing version.
    I had to do a clean installation and all was fine.

    Yes first thing that I did when I noticed it, made no difference though.



  • Hello!

    After I upgraded to v11.60.23(2010 final version) I saw that when I clicked on mouse right click the options(such as “Extract to…” and etc) are disappearing.

    why that problem happen and how can I solve it?

    Best Regards,
    Yonatan


  • conexware

    try restarting your computer and see if that helps - if not, reinstall and it should work fine.

    thanks!


  • conexware

    it would also be very helpful to us if you let us know what is the date of pashell.dll in PA folder, before you do any of the above 🙂
