PA 21.00.18 running on Windows 7 64 bit.
I made a big .PA file and thought I’d check it was made correctly with Menu / Actions / Test.
a) PA always issues a UAC prompt to do this!
b) PA always says there are many errors in PA files.
WinRAR 5 has a rather useful option in some cases, which is to be able to create an archive by replacing identical files with a reference to the first occurrence (hardlink) within the archive.
In case you choose to convert the file with PowerArchiver to another format, however, the resulting archive does not have all the files. It does not consider those that were present as hardlinks.
If you do a normal extraction of the RAR archive instead, even with PowerArchivier, all the files are extracted correctly.
When adding to a file archive, and selecting for example PA format, strong optimization method, extreme compression. In the Advanced Options section you change to Automatic, EXE Filter and PDF filter . You return to the main section and save the Profile. When you then reload the profile you do not have the Automatic options of EXE Filter and PDF saved there.
I noticed that instead if you change other options they are saved correctly (except for the Filter box values).
Also among the various changes to the advanced options you click the “Calculate RAM usage” button the value seems to be added to the previous one. You can see it for example just by clicking the button twice in a row, the value changes. Edit: actually after many attempts now it seems to write a stable value (it does not change with each click). Maybe a synchronization problem in the calculation?
Used PowerArchivier 2023 but there is the same behavior with the 2022
Impossible to open PAE
trying to open PAE with the latest PA version, the Window to enter password appears a quarter of a second then disappears ! No time to catch the pass, and so it’s impossible to open the encrypted file… :confused:
no ideas ?
I just reinstalled latest version, still cannot enter password, so my PAE is still encrypted !
thanks a lot
as I can’t open my PAE with shell extention, I went to the encrypting tool and tried this way to open something :
for each PAE i have, I always get the following warning “Error while unsecuring”…
This is with v. 14.02.05
It used to work well with former versions…
I’d like to get a reply because I need some of my files.
Thanks a lot.
Is it possible the files have been corrupted? Typically the error message “Error while unsecuring” is displayed when there is a problem during the decryption process.
I have no doubt you are using the correct password so it is either;
1. A fault with PowerArchiver
2. A corrupt PAE Archive
3. A fault with your computers registry causing PA not to work correctly.
What i would suggest is to uninstall PowerArchiver completely and delete the entire “PowerArchiver” folder within your MyComputer’s program files.
If not already download ccleaner “freeware” from Periform and run a full Clean and Registry clean. Then reboot your computer and repeat this process until all redundant registry items are cleaned.
Then download the latest version of PowerArchiver “14.02.05” and install, reboot your system after completion and try your PAE file.
PAEs are not corrupted, I can open them on another machine using PA 14.02.03
It’s a bug within PA (I already desinstalled, cleaned PC with jv16PT, reboot and reinstalled… same behaviour !
good day sir richard

Go to your Config: Security options and check “use same password for same session”.
It will then work… we will fix it in next update.
