Virtual Drive and Windows 8

  • I’ve just upgraded Windows 7 to Windows 8 and can no longer create Virtual Drives. I get an error “Check StarPort driver failed! Check if StarPort or StarPort Lite is installed”.

    I tried uninstalling and reinstalling PowerArchiver but it hasn’t helped.

    Is Windows 8 supported?


  • I found the StarPort driver and uninstalled it, and then reinstalled PA and the driver, and all is good now.

    cool - in the future, just delete pavd*.exe in PA folder and check click on Virtual Drive inside PA, it will download and install latest release and problem solved… thank you!
