Just tried using the Modern (Windows 10) Icon set and seeing a few missing icons in both PowerArchiver Burner and PowerArchiver Encryption screens . They are all there in the Minimalistik icon set and the only difference I can see is the former is blue and the latter grey. In version 22.00.9
there were some security issues fixed in 7zip:
As it seems, that PowerArchiver and PACL use the 7zip libraries, could you please update them to the latest version?
I noticed that the version of ZPAQ used is older than the latest released 7.15 https://mattmahoney.net/dc/zpaq.html also there seems to be a newer fork that adds several features https://github.com/fcorbelli/zpaqfranz
It would be useful to implement this latest version (it also maintains the same syntax and behavior as the latest official release if used the -715 flag) and add when opening a zpaq file a choice of the version of the files to show (e.g. as dummy folders represented the various versions present). Since any previous changes are stored with this format, it is possible to extract a snapshot of a certain date/version.
If I open a password-protected zipper file (created with WinRAR but I think that’s irrelevant), open it with PowerArchiver and run “Remove Encryption” on the same file, then reopen it and add a password with “Encrypt Archive,” the resulting archive will be protected with the old ZipCrypto algorithm and not AES as indicated.
(this can be verified, for example, by trying to open the archive files with Windows Explorer, which does not support the AES algorithm)
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.
PA 2006 Beta 1 - Problem w/ Modern Skin
I’ve run into a small nuisance with PA 2006 Beta 1 9.50.20:
Once you select the Modern Skin it can be difficult to remove it from being used.
Set the skin to Modern, then if you subsequently select almost any other skin, you get a combination of the 2 skins (both in appearance and in the fact that both are checked on the menu).
It seems that selecting “Default - Large Icons” will clear out the Modern skin setting, but most other selections result in a combined appearance.
Also, while playing around with selecting various skins repeatedly to verify the behavor while I was posting this message, I got an Access Violation:
Access Violation at address 004E3272 in module ‘POWERARC.EXE’. Read of address 00000030.
In case it matters, I installed 9.50.20 over an existing installation of PA 2005 (without uninstalling first).
selecting default will indeed reset the skin. Since you installed it over PA2004, you have left over toolbar skins, so when you select one of them only toolbar changes. And when you have selected skin+separate toolbar skin, PA will indicate so by placing checkmarks next to BOTH of them. Only real skins installed by PA2006 are Fruit and Modern…
thanks for AV, we will check it out…
