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.
7-zip executable files…
Does powerarchiver have the ability to create 7-zip executable archives so that they’re self extracing? If so, I’m not seeing them :(
Powerarchiver is great to have 7-zip capabilities but without being able to make a self extracting 7-zip executable it makes it almost useless to use for any web based download as most users won’t have the software to extract the files.
If powerarchiver doesn’t have those options, will it ever in the near future?
At the moment PA does not support creating 7zip self extracting files.
It has been mentioned before see (among other examples)
Also, PA Help file states:
PowerArchiver’s 7-Zip limitations: Currently, PowerArchiver does not support several features already found in 7-Zip: AES encryption (both read and write), SFX creation (extraction works fine), and detection of solid archives (which is why we can not update files inside 7-Zip archives). We plan to add these and other new 7-Zip features that become available in future PowerArchiver releases.
So, it is coming.
No worries :) Thanks for the information though. Definitely still supportive of Powerarchiver as there isn’t a better “all around” tool available :)
only 7 zip file manager at the moment supports 7zip excutables will be alsong shortly. They are changing all the time so please be patient and it will come
Currently you can only create 7Z SFX archive with 7-ZIP Manager. PowerArchiver only supports extracting 7Z SFX archives.
We shall see if we can add somehow support for creating 7Z SFX archives for future versions. I will talk about this with author of 7-ZIP.
