UAC elevation issue
I’m using PowerArchiver 2011 12.01.02 and it seems the UAC elevation is broken. Everytime I try to extract a file to a folder located at C:\Program Files it gives a permission denied error. With the initial PowerArchiver 2011 I was getting a UAC elevation prompt and the file was unpacked to that location.
I’m using Windows 7 x64 SP1
seems to work fine here.
Do you have UAC elevation enabled/checked in Config>Misc?
I just tried PA 2011 Int 12.01.02 on Win7 64bit and works fine too… check the setting as mili suggested.
What archive type are you using it with?
Setting is enabled. Archive type was 7z. Tried it today again, and it worked. Go figure… Maybe something was locking the file.
quite possibly it was really locked, maybe due to AV checking? In any case, closing the thread.
In fact, we could add this to the VSS code as well - ability to read locked archives (currently we use VSS to read files that are locked), but this happens so rarely it is probably not worth the effort.
