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.
Win XP Pro/SP2
In PA 2004 I could open a Zip archive, add files to it and then encrypt the Zip to pae. If at a later date I wished to add more files to the encrypted archive, I could do so, with the “Update archive” option enabled under “Miscellaneous”. Thereafter, opening and decrytping the archive would reveal the added file(s).
This is very useful when building up a zip gradually, encrypting all the while, and then sending finally to recipient i.e. keeps data secure all through the process.
In PA 2006, I try to do the same thing, and my screen flashes, but the file(s) being added do not appear in the archive. Nor do I get the “update” message at all.
I have checked and rechecked all the settings, played around with them etc but no way can I get this to work properly.
The preferred encryption is AES 128.
Any ideas, anyone?
thanks - we will check it out!
I have had another look at this pae problem. It seems that if PA is not skinned with the 2006 Interface Skins, then the problem arises (i.e. this line/option is left blank).
I have applied the Green Metal skin, and this seems to solve the problem.
Create new zip archive, add files, encrypt and delete original zip. Then open pae, add a file and it works OK.
this has been fixed in 9.51. Please check it out.
I have had a try or two with 9.51 and it seems OK now.
great, closing this one…
