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 and Drop extract context menus in Win XP 64
Hi, I’ve been using PA for a while though this is my first time in a 64 bit environment. Under windows 32 I could drag and drop an archive to another folder (with the RM button) and the context menu it presented to me would have the PA shell extension options for extraction. Now in Windows 64 these context menus aren’t present when doing drag and drop though they are during a standard right click.
This topic may have been covered though my forum reading didn’t uncover something specific to this question. Is this just a nature of Windows 64 and the way context menus are now handled? My PA install resides in D:\Apps\Tools\PowerArchiver so obviously outside the \Pro Files (x86)\ directory that could cause problems. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated. I basically want to know if this is expected or not.
I uninstalled all previous versions, deleted folders from programs and x86 programs folder, rebooted and installed 2006 version, oppened and associated all files and now i am able to use right drag menues.
problem fixed : )
my mistake, only right click menu came back, the EXTRACT HERE option from right draging still isn’t functoning yet : (
We shall work on this for next update - final 9.5 didn’t have this function on x64.
What’s the proposed implementation timeframe of this one? Been a few versions since 9.50 and haven’t heard anything about this one yet.
Just hoping for an update.
It will be implemented in 9.60. 9.51 is the only update since 9.50 and it is only with just few smaller updates.
Thank you for the info and quick reply. Looking foward too it!
