  • This package uses PowerArchiver 2016 MSI installer extracted from PowerArchiver's .exe file. There's no way to omit extracting window, if you use self-extracting exe, so I use extracted msi package instead.

To install PowerArchiver 2016, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install powerarchiver2016

To upgrade PowerArchiver 2016, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade powerarchiver2016

Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
