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.
Drag-N-Drop folder with relative path problem
There is a problem when trying to add a single folder to an archive (using either PA 9.26 or 9.50.26 (PA 2006 Beta 7)).
Say that for example that I have a folder heirarchy on my disk something like:
Each folder has files in it, and an Explorer window is open to Folder1.
If I have “Use Normal Relative Path” unchecked, and I drag Folder2 to an archive open in PA, the archive gets the contents of Folder2. This is what I expect when the Normal Relative Path option is off.
However, if I have the Normal Relative Option checked and I drag folder2 into the archive, the folder heirarchy that gets put into the archive starts at Folder1, not folder2 as I would expect.
There doesn’t seem to be a way to get folder2 into the archive by drag-n-drop except by having folder1 above it.
I can confirm this !!
IMO this is a serious bug.
I also reported this bug in the internal alpha bug forum some time ago
Hey, I just downloaded PA 2006 RTM, and this problem seems to be fixed!
I can’t believe this got fixed at such a late stage in the release cycle.
Thanks very much!
you are welcome…
