Download this ZIP file: http://dslstats.me.uk/files/dslstats32W-6.5.zip
Everything in the ZIP file is in a directory “dslstats32W-6.5”.
However when I extract using right click “Extract Here” the name of the directory created is “2W-6.5” !
I am running PA 22.00.09 on Windows 11. I have seen the same happen with some other kinds of archive too.
If I compress a folder to a .pa using right click, Compress to folder.pa and use the new Windows 11 menu then the Options, Configuration, Miscellaneous, Use normal relative path setting is always enabled.
But I like this option disabled so I have to use the old style menu in order to get PA to compress a folder in the way I wish.
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.
UU and XX Encoding Problem. They just won’t decode!
Mime and yenc work fine.
I just did quick test and it works fine. Can anyone confirm this? Are there are special options?
I encoded a small 7zip and a cab file with Beta 5. PA won’t open them. I’d send it along but it doesn’t have the proper extension.
I took a 7zip archive, encoded it to UU. and then zipped it so that I could send it to you.
I can’t get it to decode, and I can reproduce this with other files.
I attempted to open the test zip file, which I could open it, but when it came to open the 7zip file (bathroom something) it would not open it.
Using PA 2006 beta 5
Here is a Microsoft Works Word Processor file compressed by PA with 7zip. Try encoding it to either uu or xx, then try to open it in PA’s main window. It will show the 7zip file, but does nothing when you click on it to open it.
If I try the same thing, and in the same manner, with an mp3 file, the 7zip will open. Could this be connected to text files compressed with 7zip, or is it just coincidence?
I was able to reproduce the problem.
I downloaded the file that was 7zip
I went to tools UUencode
It creates the file
I open the file and see the 7zip file inside the UUencoded file
PA does nothing with the file when I double click on it and I get an error when I try to drag it to the desktop.
I have the same results for XXencode.
MIME and yENC both work just fine.
The issue should be fixed in Final Beta.
