PA 21.00.18 running on Windows 7 64 bit.
I made a big .PA file and thought I’d check it was made correctly with Menu / Actions / Test.
a) PA always issues a UAC prompt to do this!
b) PA always says there are many errors in PA files.
WinRAR 5 has a rather useful option in some cases, which is to be able to create an archive by replacing identical files with a reference to the first occurrence (hardlink) within the archive.
In case you choose to convert the file with PowerArchiver to another format, however, the resulting archive does not have all the files. It does not consider those that were present as hardlinks.
If you do a normal extraction of the RAR archive instead, even with PowerArchivier, all the files are extracted correctly.
When adding to a file archive, and selecting for example PA format, strong optimization method, extreme compression. In the Advanced Options section you change to Automatic, EXE Filter and PDF filter . You return to the main section and save the Profile. When you then reload the profile you do not have the Automatic options of EXE Filter and PDF saved there.
I noticed that instead if you change other options they are saved correctly (except for the Filter box values).
Also among the various changes to the advanced options you click the “Calculate RAM usage” button the value seems to be added to the previous one. You can see it for example just by clicking the button twice in a row, the value changes. Edit: actually after many attempts now it seems to write a stable value (it does not change with each click). Maybe a synchronization problem in the calculation?
Used PowerArchivier 2023 but there is the same behavior with the 2022
How delete PA2011 file type extensions
I just installed PA2011 onto my new computer running Windows 7 Professional SP1 (64 bit).
At installation, I allowed PA to install and take over its suggested file extension associations. I have now noticed that it has added over 400 file extensions in 4 categories to my file types extension list (and indexing options list) that I will seldom if ever use.
I would like to dis-associate PA from these file type extensions and then completely remove them from my file types listing to clean it up.
The file type extensions in questions show as:
- .001 to .099
- .r01 to .r99
- .z01 to .z99
- .zx00 to .zx99
Can someone pls tell my which PA 2011 File Format groups are associated with these 400 file type extensions, how do I dis-associate PA from them, and finally how do I delete them from the Windows 7 file type extension list. (I don’t see a delete button as in Windows XP).
Do the PA associations and file types go away if the program is uninstalled? If so, Would it be easiest to uninstall the program then reinstall the program with those File Format groups unchecked? (Note I still need to know what those groups are to uncheck them).
I’ve replied to this question through the support ticket you sent, let us know if you have any further questions. :)
those are zip and rar extensions.
Thanks and sorry, I was unaware that the forum and technical were inter-connected and I am looking for all ideas.
I wrote back to Mili for more clarifications.
Can you be more specific as to exactly which of the PA File Formats check blocks relates to each of the 4 file extension groupings that I have shown (ie: what do I uncheck to dis-associate the first extension group, the second, etc)?
