Problem opening files in zip

  • A recurring problem I have, even with the latest version, is opening files inside a zip archive.
    Usually it is a zip file containing a Visual Studio project with xaml and cs files.
    The first file I “Open With” an external program, Notepad or Notepad++, opens OK. But the next file I try to open hangs Powerarchiver and I have to kill the process.

    On Windows 7 Ultimate, x86.
    Windows Firewall and MSE.

    can you send us an example archive to support at conexware dot com and we will try reproducing it here… thanks!

    p.s. is it only with open with or any way you open files?

    also, what version of PA?

  • Hi<br /><br />It’s only when I use Open With and when trying several times today I managed to open files up to 5-6 times before it happens. Status bar message is “Extracting files”<br />PA version is 13.01.04 (09/2012)<br /><br />Example archives by mail.<br /><br />Edit: Error when sending mail to, any other address?<br /><br /><em>I’m afraid I wasn’t able to deliver your message to the following addresses.<br />This is a permanent error; I’ve given up.

  • @spwolf:

    it is support@ not forums 🙂

    Then why send me an email from
    Perhaps an auto reply from the forums, but still an non existing address which I replied to. 😕

    it is notification of posts email address thats ignored… only one support mailbox.

    are you opening these txt files all at once?

  • Nope, I close file/editor before opening next.
