PA 2007 (10.2x), PACL 4.01



  • Can i use these old PA versions with recent registration info? Planning to pay for PA, but not sure about that. Newer versions not suitable for me because i still using Windows 98 and vewer versions have various problems or even just won’t work at all in such ancient OS (yep, i know about GDI+/.NET req.)

    Thanks.

    you have to email us after your purchase and we will manually add PA 2007 and PACL 4x to your order, so yes it is possible…

    although did you try PA 2010? It should work fine with GDI+ installed. PACL shouldnt have any differences, it should work with 6.xx?

    No it didn’t work fine at all. 11.64 just won’t install and gives error about installer dll. Probably it use newer microsoft installer which can’t be used in 98?
    11.62 is last version which didn’t give installer version error and goes to missing gdi+ dialog. Yeah, i already have installed .NET 1.1 & 2.0. Anyway it prompt me about missing GDI+. Ok, i download gdiplus_dlnd.exe and successfully go to next installation step. But anyway no luck.

    10.22 is last version that works ok but have minor issues in their interface.
    PACL version newer than 4.01 “works” but won’t compress in any other formats except 7z and LHA.
    Compressing in CAB just won’t work.
    ***WARNING: Nothing to add or update…
    All other formats gives archives with 0% compression like in ‘store’ mode.
    Only 7z and LHA really compress.

    Sorry for bad english.

    you dont need to have .NET installed for PA though.

    This error is due to bad MSI installation. You have to clean it by using Windows Installer Cleanup tool.

    Here is the file:

    Clean the PowerArchiver entry with it and then try installation again.

    We will check PACL.

    thanks
