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.
Access Violation Error
Everytime I try to open power archiver, I get an access violation error. I tried unistalling it and reinstalling both the latest stable and 2006 beta. Also it won’t let me register it or set any options. Though after I click OK after I gett he error, I can manually open archive files as usual. Though if I click on the file itself and Power Arciver opens, I gett he error. I also tried installing Power Archiver under a new, fresh account under Windows XP in case it was a local registry error, but the same error occurs. Though This is the only program that ahs this error. Any other program I use that uses the registry and such receives no error.
Heres a screenshot of the error:
… I tried unistalling it and reinstalling both the latest stable and 2006 beta …
Just a wild guess - maybe a “old” dll file (explorer shell) or possibly a SKIN/Toolbar problem.
After uninstalling (and before reinstalling) did you -
a) Reboot Windows?
b) Manually delete the PowerArchiver directory?
If not, you could try that.
Note: In case you missed it, the registration for PA 2006 has changed, see
Under the beta 6 announcement.
is there anything specific to this system or? Are you running under admin account or?
I manage to find the error. A conflicting dll in my windows directory.
