ACE archives are not getting extracted on windows 2008 server with PAEXT



  • While upgrading our application on windows 2008 server R2 64 bit, we noticed that ‘ACE’ archives are not getting extracted on. Both PAEXT V6 and V4 are failed to extract ACE file on w2k8, but it doesn’t throw any error. Those files are getting extracted on w2k3 and windows XP machines (32 bit).

    Also, listing option (-v) gives proper result, but extraction fails.

    Anyone having any idea on this?

    Hi!
    I don’t have Windows 2008 server R2 64 bit and can’t test this problem to see if the same thing happens to me.

    I assume from what you have written that this happens to every ACE archive you have tested so far.

    One interesting thing to test would be extraction of ACE archive on Windows 7 64-bit to see if the problem is related to 64-bit OS or something else. The reason for testing this is that the successful extraction of the archives was made on 32-bit Win 2k3 and XP.

    Kind Regards

    I have also extracted the files from the same ACE Archive using PA v 11.64.01 in Windows 7 Enterprise Ed. 64-bit with successful result as the files was extracted correctly from the archive.
    
    **Conclusion:** The problem is PAEXT unable to extract ACE archive using 64-bit Windows.

    Here is updated version of PACL: http://www.powerarchiver.com/test/alpha120/pacl700b1.exe

    Thanks!


  • Alpha Testers

    Hi!
    I have now tried to extract a ACE archive using PAEXT in Windows 7 Enterprise Ed.64-bit. The test was made with the new PACL 7.00 beta 1.

    The results are the same as with PACL 6.01. No files in the ACE archive are getting extracted. It looks like there’s still problem using PAEXT in 64-bit Windows.

    Kind Regards
    Micke


  • conexware

    thanks a lot!


  • conexware

    Micke,
    How was the ACE arhive created?
    Would you be able to send a sample that does not work for you so can check it out?
    ivan at conexware dot com

    thanks!

    @Mili:

    Micke,
    How was the ACE arhive created?

    I created the ACE archive using WinAce 2.69

    @Mili:

    Would you be able to send a sample that does not work for you so can check it out?
    ivan at conexware dot com

    thanks!

    Sure, no problem. I’m at work now, but I’ll fix this when I get home tonight.

    Kind Regards
    Micke


  • conexware

    Thanks Micke!
    Ivan could not reproduce it so that that will help reproduce it and get it fixed. 🙂


  • Alpha Testers

    I have now send a testsample to Ivan.

    Kind Regards
    Micke


  • conexware

    Many thanks Micke, checking it out!

    Results are the same as before, no files extracted. I didn’t expect it to work because of Milis comments about Ivan was not able to reproduce it, but it’s always good to confirm that the same test was made with the latest version.

    Kind Regards

    we have one computer that we can reproduce it on and 3 where we cant… interesting issue.

    @spwolf:

    we have one computer that we can reproduce it on and 3 where we cant… interesting issue.

    Can you see any logic in this? So far the reported problem happens on Win 7 Ent. Ed. 64-bit and Win 2008 Server 64-bit.

    Have you the same version of OS installed on the 4 machines you have tested it in?

    If the OS is the same in all 4 machines, then it would be hard to explain why you can only reproduce it on 1 of the 4 machines, but working properly on the other 3. Like you said, it’s an interesting issue.

    Kind Regards
    Micke
