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…

Could you assist me with this?
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!
CRC errors when working with WinRar ZIP files
Hi. I am using two PCs - one at work with old version of PA (named 2009, I can check the exact version number on monday if that helps you) and no way for upgrades (corporate policy, will be explained later) and another one at home with latest version of PA.
Few weeks ago we were informed at work that PA is getting replaced with WR which is recommended to be used, while we may keep the old version of PA installed. And this is where the problem started. At work I am creating large backup ZIP archive (around 15 GB compressed) using Win Rar 5.00 x32 running under Windows XP Pro x32. Next I am copying it onto external USB HDD and getting home. I am copying it then from external HDD to my personal HDD. As always just to be sure everything went fine I run Test operation on this archive using PA 13.x. I got thousands of CRC errors. My first thought was that this file was corrupted while moving between HDDs. But that was not the case. I got my home HDD hooked to work PC and the Test procedure went fine using WR 5.00 and PA 2009 that I got there installed. So knowing the file is not damaged I’m back with my personal HDD to home. It seems PA 13.x is wrong claiming there are CRC errors. Just to be sure I have installed at my home PC trial version of WR 5.00 (x64, running under Windows 7 x64) and the Test procedure is completed just fine. I can extract every file from this archive and they are working fine after that. So I did upgrade from PA 13.x to PA 14.01.06 - still same situation, thousands of CRC errors while running Test procedure.
Looking closely into that case I was able to isolate the problem. PA 13/14 claims there is a CRC error only on files inside this ZIP archive that have unusual characters in their filenames. By unusual I mean common Polish national characters that can be found in Windows-1250 charset (e.g. Unicode #017A character). All other files can be extracted and working file when using PA 14.
Any fix for this? It’s weird that old version of PA 2009 doesn’t have this bug, but it could be related to new multicore ZIP engine that was introuduced somewhere between those versions…
can you send us one example archive but with single file or something like that? I cant tell you whats wrong before checking it out.
WR has pretty wonky ZIP support, it is better to use RAR which you can open with PA. They have multicore support for RAR, I dont think they do for ZIP, so it will be faster that way.
We always have to add workarounds for various different archivers that dont implement perfect support for zip specification.
you can send archive to support at conexware dot com… much appreciated!
Hello, I attempted to reproduce this by including the Unicode #017A character in a filename and creating an backup archive via WinRar 5.00
Tested in latest PowerArchiver and it worked fine.
If you can, please do send over a sample archive to support at conexware dot com and we will take a closer look
