[BUG] UAC support broken in PowerArchiver 2018

I’ve some problems with UAC in PowerArchiver 2018:
- I’ve already reported problems for PA2017 and you fixed some problems.
- I’ve noticed again problems with UAC: The problematic archive is a 7zip. Opening it with PA2018 and directly clicking on extract, triggers an UAC prompt as expected. Selecting single files and trying to extract them to the same place (a subfolder of C:\Program Files) fails with an error (there are already older versions of the files in the same place to be overwritten).
- I’ve done further tests with other formats, via shell extension (Extract to…):
My test archives contain 1 file: test.txt
If the file does not already exist:
UAC prompt: 7z, pa, tar, lha
Access error: zip, rar, cab, bh
If the file already exists in the destination folder, no UAC prompt is triggered in any case. I confirm overwriting the files and it fails with an access error.
I’ve used PA 18.00.46 x64 on Windows 10 1709.
- The x86 Shell extension behaves differently:
All but the rar archive triggers an UAC prompt if the file doesn’t exist in the destination folder; if I deny the UAC prompt, the shell extension crashes in most cases.
Are you going to fix this in PA2018 soon or should I revert to PA2016, again?
thanks for the details on this one @BigMike
confirmed it and logged it in
