Shell extension compress profile TAR

  • Trying to change the Compression Profile for the ShellExt:TAR-Default and it does not seem to take effect.

    Have added the shell extension for Compress to TAR. After adding it, it does show up although it shows up as ‘Compress To "<blah>.tar.gz’" and it works. The issue is that I want a ‘Compress To “<blah>.tar”’ as regularly compress to just tar but not to gz (and the activity I use the file for does not do un-tar.gz).

    BTW, I even did a full Win7 system restart after making the Compression Profile ShellExt:TAR-Default changes (and confirmed those changes still existed in the PA Configuration).

    How can I change the compression default for ShellExt, esp TAR?

    Actually suspect this is a subtle bug. Also I am using a workaround of having the shell extension for Compress with Options also active… so this is not a show stopper, but I like PA’s shell extension and having the one click for the compress to just .tar vs .tar.gz would be nice.</blah></blah>

    Thanks for the info grogier, it’s indeed a bug. Should give you a .tar when selecting store method in compression profiles.
