I’m running PA 21.00.17 64-bit on a 64-bit i7 desktop with W10 Pro, latest version. This 32gb of installed RAM.
As I use the PA pbs system for a number of scheduled archiving operations throughout the day, PA Starter is set to load and run at system startup.
In the course of trying to identify some causes of slowness and bottlenecks in other processes, I notice that PA Starter (PAS) always runs at between 11% and 15% of CPU (see screenshot), usually at about 12-13%. This is by far the highest demanding process on the system, as shown by Task Manager. In Performance Monitor, PAS Average CPU is 8.32, with every other process at less that 1 i.e. in decimal places only.
Task Manager also shows PAS Power Usage as “Very High”, and is the only process shown thus.
I have looked again at the information about PAS at https://wiki.powerarchiver.com/en:help:details:powerarchiver_starter, which was last modified in 2016. The article states a low memory usage for PAS of 784k, which is fair enough, but it is the large CPU overhead which is of concern.
It is of course possible to change the PAS priority, but this has no effect on CPU overhead.
However, is it possible to change PAS, which is required only at intervals to initiate PA scheduled tasks, from consuming so much system resource for every moment of the day?
i just registered my own copy and i need some help to set it…
if i set the ‘configuration>shell extension>open folder after extracting’ checkbox, after decompress an archive is opened the file manager on that folder but… if somebody is using a different file manager how to open XYplorer or Directory Opus for example and NOT the MS file manager?
consider this as a feature request also if not available within the 2022 version
I am looking for a way to stop the UAC elevation prompt when running Powerarchiver. In an old post about PA 2019, someone asked this and got a response to uncheck “all users” at the prompt but I am not seeing where one can do this. It definitely seems like the way to go though as if I click on “More Details” at the prompt I see that it is trying to run “_pautil.exe /paassociate /allusers /my(long binary string)”. Can you let me know? Thanks.
PS I tried renaming _pautil.exe and this worked, but I don’t know what the consequence of doing this may be so I would like to do this properly, thanks.
Just a question is Ashampoo zip pro 4 built by Powerrachiver as it is very similar and uses the pae encryption.
Here is the email…

Can I use my current licenses with MacOS?
If not, can I transfer a license to MacOS?

There would be many of us with Intel Processors.
and they have their own optimized zlib algorithm, which can result in more efficiency if used combined with their hardware processor.
Can we get the same Functionality Under Hardware Acceleration Feature?
Zlib is not the only feature that intel has included with their processor, there’s many, which if combined can result in efficient and better compression ratios.
With PowerArchiver context menu enabled, it is crashing Windows 10 File Explorer when right-clicking on the Default User junction in C:\Users. Had 2021 installed, updated to today’s 2022, still getting same crash. Must have Hidden files and folders set to Show, and Hide protected operating system files cleared in File Explorer Options|View.
Windows 10 Enterprise Version 21H2 (OS Build 19044.1708) (64-bit)
PowerArchiver 2022 Version: 21.00.15 (03/2022) 64-bit
PowerArchiver Toolbox Edition Personal English
Disabling PowerArchiver context menu using Autoruns: on the Explorer tab, uncheck PowerArchiver64 under HKLM\Software\Classes\Folders\ShellEx\ContextMenuHandlers and the crash does not happen.
when clciking on powerarchiver update from within powerarchiver we get a windows for the update but it nows sayes script errors. I think it could be due to windows update in windows 10 can you look into it. By pressing cancel it seems to be ok. It seems that the page being displayed as erros on it.
From within PA on the extract popup, buttons are hidden, I must resize the window to get access to the OK/Cancel buttons. Tried on the default notebook screen (Macbook M1 Max 14") as well as on my external monitor (4k).Screenshot_2022-05-12_10-02-10.jpg
Ho già contattato il supporto con il modulo presente qui https://www.powerarchiver.com/it/contact/ da settimane ma non ho ricevuto riscontro e ora che ho aggiornato alla versione 21.00.15 ho notato che il problema persiste.
Quando clicco PDF Encrypt & Sign nel tab Crittografia appare la schemata riportata sotto come se mancassero le funzionalità.
I’ve already contacted support with the form here https://www.powerarchiver.com/it/contact/ weeks ago but I haven’t received any feedback and now that I’ve updated to version 21.00.15 I’ve noticed that the problem persists.
When I click on PDF Encrypt & Sign in the Encryption tab the schematic below appears as if the functionality is missing.
I have tried to burn a DVD with PowerArchiver 2022 Final, but it didn’t work because PA didn’t found the external DVD-Burner.
I have tried several burners from Sony, LG, Dell.
I have connected the burners with several USB-Ports but unfortunately without any success.
With other burning software, e. g. Nero, all burner worked perfect on each USB-Port.
The same problem occured with PA2018 and it was solved with an update, but I don’t remember the detailed software version.
Could you check the possibility of an bug, please?
Thank you for your support in advance!
if you down load any sony dvd player firmware update it shows the powearrchiver iso icon but can not be opened with powearrchiver. the file is called SNEEC900.BIN
I think Sony and other brands encrypt iso so users can’t alter the files contained such as firmware etc can’t be modified.
Out of curiosity have you tried another zip program to see if this is the cause?
if that was the case shouldn’t powerarchiver be able to detect this and inform me
Not really, think about it. The whole point of them ensuring their devices can be updated correctly is to secure the data and method in which it’s contained.
So they would use there own software or code to create a locked down version using ISO as a format. it doesnt really mean it is the same structure of an ISO, An example would be DVD’s within them are VOB Files which are split Mpeg’s saved differently so additional methods can be attached when playing a dvd.
In order for powerarchiver to read a format and display the contents or tell the user its encypted that ISO format must be created using the set method of rules including Encryption.
It wouldnt be a very secure method if third party applications like PowerArchiver, WinZip, Stuffit or winrar could not only Open the format but read it and even tell you it’s encryption method.
That then give’s hackers an imidiate platform to go off, make atempts to alter the code and then the source code which is not what sony, panasonic or any other major brand would like.
just tried with powerIso and no good :)
how the average user supposed to know this if pa does not inform the user that the iso has been locked?
shouldn’t pa tell us?
I am sure there is a prompt that PA or other apps could implement that would tell the user it can’t recognise the ISO format.
However, PA isnt the only application that isnt able to read this particular ISO.
If its an unrecognied format how can it be reported?
ie when you open an exe with notepad you dont get a error message from notpad saying it cant read it you just get raw rubbish code interprited as best as possible by that application.
If PA cant read or understand the format how can it report to the user other than “Cant Recognise Format”
that will be up to the development team to decide on. :)
doesnt it tell you it cant read it?
As with everything David’s use of ISO’s will be different to my own bar the ISO’s I download and create from my own licenced software etc i dont have any issues so I have never had a situation when an error message need to apear.
this bin file is not an iso file at all… it is firmware for device, it is not going to be openable by any iso software.
PA does associate with bin files because some of them are legitimate disc images. There is no way to know which one is which without actually opening the file.
;) Thats what i was trying to say… its may be classed as a file but as its firmware it may not be associated correctly as an ISO.
true but it would be nice to be able to open these files as they are an archive format. It would be nice for powearchiver to tell me it cant open them for a reason not associate an icon to them just becasue they may or may not open in powerarchiver.
Bin is a popu;ar format and it would be nice to be able to work with them. I know that some are protected but it would be nice to know that.
it cant un-associate the icon obviously, because it doesnt know what kind of file it is until it opens it up.
it is like that for every format… Thats simply not possible to do.
You can un-associate it yourself if it bothers you, but there is not much else we can do as there are proper disc images with extension name .bin.
