Latest beta maybe a bug or widh



  • if you try and convert an archive

    basically if you specify a path to a folder that does not exist then it does not create a new folder you have to create the folder first. wouldn’t it be easier to ask if you wanted to create the folder instead of the time consuming method of having to create one manually


  • conexware

    works fine here.

    Did you select Custom in the Destination Folder menu?



  • i should of mentioned that i wqas using the convert tool from the menu.

    Basically i open up the convert menu and specify a folder for the converted archive to go to and as the folder does niot exist it sayes so what it used to do was ask if you wanted to dreate the folder before the conversion took place.

    Now it seems you need to create the folder before you start this perocess


  • conexware

    seems to work fine here, creates new folder just fine without asking anything.

    Anyone else?


  • Alpha Testers

    Works fine for me here.


  • Alpha Testers

    seems to work fine for me also unless of course we are missing an important factor from David’s post ?

    I tested all options under the convert option and all worked fine.



  • basically i’m asking pa to do the folder creating via the path setting i write the path out to a folder that does not exist on my pc and i want it tio create that and put the converted archive in it. I do not wnat to play around created the folder myself i wnat it to ask me do you wnat to create the folder with this file in it and to say yes or no.



  • seems to me all you guys are putting a converted archive in a folder thats already on your pc or are using the new folder button on the archive i have not used any of that i have just specified in the path the folder that does not exist on my pc and i want pa to craete that foleder using the path details



  • versioon testing is 11.70.04


  • Alpha Testers

    I did it exactly the way you described David…tested it several times and couldn’t replicate your problem.

    “have just specified in the path the folder that does not exist on my pc and i want pa to create that folder using the path details”


  • conexware

    I have also just typed in a name of the folder that does not exist and that folder was created.

    @Mili:

    I have also just typed in a name of the folder that does not exist and that folder was created.

    Same here. Tried a few times and a new folder created every time.

    Works fine (new folder/new subfolder) for me; both in GUI and via shell.
    However, I only have one drive to test with so let me ask; is your problem with new folder on same drive as PA or on a second disk / network drive?


  • Alpha Testers

    I tested that scenario on a second drive Terry and it too worked fine for me.



  • could it be a permissions issue as i only used windows 2000 and had an update from microsoft for securitry recenly



  • in anycase shouldn’t it ask you for permission by a dialog box if it can or would you like it to create a new folder. my computer has several delphi programs that i have scince found conflict with each other.



  • apologise if no one else can replicate it exactly could be something to do with my computers setup i’m using windows 2000
