12.00.49 Bug report



  • I can reproduce this.

    Open archive, click on extract, and try to click on the drop down MRU box. PA locks for 5-10 secs, then a black rectangle appears for a further 5-10 secs - it is the shape and size of the expected MRU list. Then the list appears and the rest of the extract box disappears. One is then left with the PA window with the extract box hidden underneath it.

    The previous version (RC3?) worked fine, my 12.00.49 on my netbook is unaffected, just my main PC.

    Patchbeam reported the update as the release version, but RC4 is available on the site. I need the previous version to be able to use PA again. Please let me know where I can get it from.

    Tnx.

    I cannot reproduce this on either my desktop or laptop. Makes me think something else is clashing with this feature.

    Since rebooting this PC for something else, all is well. None of my other PCs (3) had this issue at all. Cancel the brown trousers <g>!

    what AV do you use?


  • conexware

    we didnt do any changes that would cause this function to behave differently… but you never know… and also since we recompiled, some AV might have reset their pa.exe whitelist.

    someone reporting PA starting slowly, but that also happened only once.



  • I use eset NOD 32. As I said, all is well after a reboot…damn computers making me look like a schmendrick<g>. very strange.

  • This post is deleted!


  • Had to go back to 12.00.41 (RC3) as RC4 is totally unusable. So far, RC3 is okay. I did notice, with RC4, it took noticeably longer to the extract dialogue to appear after pressing ‘extract’ than with RC3.

    so what happens? What OS?


  • conexware

    maybe save your settings and send it over to us via support at conexware dot com. So we can try exactly the same settings.

    And this happens only with extract window location MRU?


  • conexware

    also that suggests that MRU had some specific folder that for some reason PA did not like… do you use maybe network folders, network drives, removable drives, etc? anything similar that would cause you to think about?



  • @spwolf:

    Same as in my original message, Win 7 32 bit.

    Yes. All settings have been deleted as I could not do in inplace downgrade…had to manually uninstall first.

    I thought of that but one moment RC3 was working, the next RC4 was not. Also, RC4 seemed to work one minute and not the next - the change happening after a reboot.

    I have just ‘patchbeamed’ my RC3 to RC4 and all is well so far. MRU is empty so far and I’ll do some experimenting later.

    Thanks

  • conexware

    just save that mru so we will see when it happens again… it happens only with the mru there, right?



  • The problem is apparent the moment I click ‘extract’ as there is a delay before the dialogue box appears.

    Only one setup has been affected, it is okay so far, will update if it occurs. Please let me know of the location where the MRU is stored.

    Cheers

  • conexware

    just use options> save settings to a file… and send it over…

    that way we have everything in case it is connected to another option as well.



  • Will do.

    Guy


  • conexware

    did you get it happen again?



  • Hi,

    No I did not…sorry for not posing earlier. I deliberately set a folder to my external drive in the MRU and them turned off that drive…no problems.

    I’ll keep monitoring…

    regards

    guy
