Power Archiver portable requires admin to run



  • The whole reason to use a portable version of a program is so you can use it anywhere from a USB stick.
    Well, I’m at work and I need to use PA, but I can’t because it comes as an installer and requires Admin privileges to open.

    Please offer another version as just a plain Zip file that I can extract.

    thanks for your input. Installer actually does not install anything, it just copies either 32bit or 64bit files to folder of your selection. But admin rights requirement is likely left from our regular PA build. So we will update it in the near future so it requires no admin.

    Once copied to the folder, you can use and copy them anywhere. Installer wrap is there to simply make it easier to select 32bit or 64bit.



  • Thanks man!

    @aluminumhaste re-download and try again please… it has admin requirement removed from the “installer”… so lets see how it works on your computer now.
