I’m using Convert Archives on a local folder of .zip files, converting them to .lzh files, and I’m finding that perhaps 1 in 75 files is actually converting and outputting a file. Even then, the .lzh file is incomplete, missing most of the source files.
The progress bars completes OK, say 75/75 files, but only one .lzh file exists in the output folder.
It seems to be the same with different source and output folders on both local and USB disk - I can’t see a pattern.
The files extract and compress (to .lzh) without issue on their own.
Is there a log file I can check please, to see why PA does not like these files as part of the batch conversion?
Thanks very much, Rich.
Hello. My problem with Powerarchiver is as follows:
First of let me say that I am running a Windows 7 Starter edition on my Toshiba NB505 laptop. You can see my specs if you google it. Needless to say that it has very limited resources and has low ram and roughly 1.66 GHz Atom processor.
I am currently using the latest version of PA. But mostly the tasks I do with it are create and uncompress zip files, as this comes in handy with my needs for compressing older files which I dont need. There is where it comes my issue with program and it is just that version after version it becomes harder for my computer to load and create zip files and 7zip ones. Needless to say that the same goes for zipx.
I have been using PA for a decade and its a good program but it is just that the current version has things which I don’t need or seldom use it, such as the preview file panel, and also the explorer tabs, skin customization and the nagging conexware update tool. Thus I was just asking, Does it exist a minimalistic version of PA or perhaps some ultra light version of it?. Something which it can be run on older computers.
Please don’t say to install an older version or going back to 2003, as well, this is not what I had in mind. I know that I could use the command line version but for me usng a GUI is more convenient. Regsrding compression speeds, I mostly use deflate for legacy zip files on the fast setting.
So far what I am doing is to set PA to use the classic skin windows view and while it does alleviate some of the lagging symptoms it doesn’t really seem to make the program to run or load faster.
Any help or advice on my problem?. By the way, I use the PRO version as that’s my current license. By the way, does PA has any pdf user’s manual or reference book? I see there are changes and numerous functionality that has been added but I have no clue on how to use it. I hope somebody could help me with that as well.
Converting an archive to .zip (using both the “Deflate (.zip, compatible)” and “Store” compression methods) always creates a .zipx file instead.
Using the “Store” method sometimes creates a .zip file; I have seen it happen just now, but I cannot reproduce it.
I thought, I’ll give it a try and upgrade my PA 2018 Toolbox on my production machine to PA 2021 (20.10.03)Sending registration codes in your order recovery doesn’t seem to work at the moment (I also checked my junk folder), online activation works Using registry to disable modules (for example HKLM\SOFTWARE\PowerArchiverInt\General\DisableBurning) doesn’t work as expected with modern ui. The module is visible, but I’ll get the trial nag, if I try to open it. It’s almost fine in classic and ribbon mode.
“DisableClouds” and “DisableExplorer” seem not to be respected at all, while the classic UI seems to respect the setting to disable any other unused module:In settings I won’t be able to access the SmartAI settings and the settings for the internal editor if the FTP module is disabled

Various fixes and improvements. More fixes and updates coming up! Thanks for everyone’s help!
I’m sorry if the dev team is affected by pandemic, and if anyways that is affecting their quality to provide quality software.
But honestly, it’s been an year I have been complaining about the queue feature, it is taking them ages to fix.
referencing the above bug, I have been waiting patiently, but the bug isn’t fixed at all.
The old queuing bug where PA gets stuck randomly, isn’t fixed either.
The Bug where you keep 10-15 files in queue at once, will cause the software to miss few in queue.
and sometimes it would compress into a corrupt archive, so you have to manually open each archive and make sure everything is there as expected.
There’s way too many bugs, and I see none getting fixed.
I’m disappointed with this software.
I should have sticked to 7zip or given a shot to other archivers than this, at least they don’t provide update once in 4 months and fix nothing.
I have some mistakes today with PowerArchiver Installation with GPO.
I checked permissions of the share folder and I already installed some app from this.
I have downloaded 32b and 64b it’s the same problem.
App is on the install list of the GPO, but don’t install on the client. All app can be install but only powerachiver not. What the hell !
So i tried :
Checked : security of share folder --> ok (install of other app ok!)
RSOP checked --> nothing special
(obviously force GPO, multiple reboot)
Can you help me please ?
I’ve been dealing with an intermittent explorer.exe crash for 5-6 years now. It happens randomly and will usually occur multiple times within a single session of an hour or two on my machine when manipulating files through Windows Explorer. explorer.exe is the only thing that ever crashes, so it’s not hardware IMO. I’ve done all hardware diagnostics and RAM is good. I’ve even swapped out motherboards with different brand and even the exact same one and it still crashes. sfc /scannow indicates system files are fine. I’ve done multiple reinstalls of the OS with no positive results. This crashing has happened on Windows 7 64-bit and Windows 10 64-bit. It seemed to get more frequent with Windows 10 after upgrading last year. I’ve also been using PowerArchiver throughout that time period (upgrading over time with new releases). I recently disabled all non-Microsoft extensions via ShellExView and saw no crashes for about 10 days, which is really unusual. I turned back them all back on after 10 days and saw another explorer.exe crash within the hour. So I disabled all 32-bit extensions and saw another crash. Following that I disabled all the PowerArchiver shell extensions and haven’t seen a crash after a day of heavy usage manipulating files within Windows Explorer, which doesn’t happen for me. The crash dumps I’ve captured don’t seem to indicate PowerArchiver is involved but I have a hunch it has something do with PowerArchiver shell extensions. The system even feels smoother with the PA extensions disabled. Windows 10 reliability monitor always has the same type of problem:Description Faulting Application Path: C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe Problem signature Problem Event Name: BEX64 Application Name: explorer.exe Application Version: 10.0.17134.165 Application Timestamp: 4031a9f8 Fault Module Name: StackHash_e78e Fault Module Version: 0.0.0.0 Fault Module Timestamp: 00000000 Exception Offset: PCH_8D_FROM_ntdll+0x000000000009AA54 Exception Code: c0000005 Exception Data: 0000000000000008 OS Version: 10.0.17126.96.36.199.256.48 Locale ID: 1033 Additional Information 1: e78e Additional Information 2: e78e327659b46c9a0c6916396b253cbf Additional Information 3: cebf Additional Information 4: cebf952c5db535ae7880488aafce55d9 Extra information about the problem Bucket ID: 1a57e4e784fbc735c231c68bd88581a9 (1311047270476906921)
I know this is a very nebulous explanation but is there any way to link this up to PA shell extensions as the cause? I can provide the crash dumps and additional information if necessary.
Latest version: 1.00.32

The same archive file does extract properly under a native Linux Ubuntu 20.04 system, or under Windows 10 using the WSL2 Linux subsystem using xz and tar.
Is there a command line to include the Registration Code when pushing an install using Microsoft Intune/Endpoint Manager?
I am able to push the software, but I’d like the PowerArchiver to be registered when it gets to the workstation instead of entering the Registration Code on each workstation individually.
Hi,The “Print button” to create a file listing of the files in the archive opens an empty drop down menu.
there are some issues with the UI in the classic interface:
Clicking on the empty entry let me save the file listing as txt file, the entry for html files is missing completely. The toolbar for the file preview feature is cut at the window edge. Options on the right aren’t accessible at all.
Unzip operation hangs
I am running the latest rc of PA and just discovered a problem.
I have a large, split zip that seems to hang at the 47% point during the unzip operation.
The zip consists of three files, two files 4.7GB in size (the DVD size listed in the gui) and the third file is 418MB in size.
Let me know what other info you require.
we’ve tried and cannot recreate the issue given the sizes you provided, let us know what kind of files are in the archive and which options were used when creating the file.
The files in the archive are VMware image files. The archive was created by selecting the original directory and choosing the split option using the ‘DVD’ size for the split size. Here is a listing from the zip via PA’s print to txt file option:

deflate method with maximum compression?
anything else checkmarked other than “include system and hidden files”?
and, mode selected for spanning? (you can see it in the drop down menu below the span size options.
Method is Bzip2, compression is normal. The file was split using Winzip (I don’t see a split/span mode type option in Winzip).
what version of PA are you using exactly?
and do you know what version of WinZip? And what settings did you use? So we can try to re-create the archive.
The flow is rather strange. The archive was originally created with 7zip using Method=Bzip2, compression=normal. The archive was one large file.
After the archive was created it was transferred across a wan where it was decided it should be split. The user only had Winzip 11.2 (build 8094) and split the file into DVD sized files.
I can unzip the split archive on my local machine using 7zip, Winzip, and Winrar. The only problem is with the latest build of PA.
hm, i have to find some older WZ because latest versions report an error when splitting large zip created with 7zip.

Is the new 11.60 build release today supposed to address this? If so, it still hangs. If not, never mind :).
nope, could not reproduce.
are these vmware image files downloadable somewhere? i have tried creating similar example, but everything worked fine. It might be something that was special to files compressed.
No, the image files are not distributable. I will see if I can come up with a reproducible scenario and set of accompanying steps.

that would definetly help us solve the issue…. i created several similar files (filename and filesize), compressed it to bzip, normal in 7z and then spanned it in WZ and works fine here. It probably is more specific that simple spanning on bzip does not work.
I just recreated the problem using the rfdc tool I referenced in this post:

I then used 7zip to create a zip file using the settings mentioned earlier in this post. Next, I used Winzip to split this zip into DVD sized files. Finally, I used PA to unzip the split zip. PA eventually hung trying to unzip the split files.
Hopefully you can recreate the problem using these steps.
Let me know if you have any questions.
PA 2010 11.60.25 is here:
check it out and see if it solves your issue.
It seems that split bz2 zip files were not properly supported!
Many, many thanks.
Many, many thanks.
thank you for reproducible reports :-)
Luckily I have ocd when it comes to details :).
