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.
When i try to set PA to use AVG virusscanner. AVG doesn’t work properly. On the site of Grisoft i’ve found this message:
If you would like to use AVG for checking files in WinZip archived files, it is necessary to use the following configuration parameters within WinZip, as shown below:
I did it just as above and then only the test center is started.
The error message that AVG gives says:
Result: cannot open; not checked!
Maybe someone got his working, so i can get it working also.
This is the only thing i found on the site of grisoft
someone emailed us few months, maybe an year ago how with recent AVG update, that stopped working. Since we didnt change anything, it definetly isnt something on our side.
In WinZip the %d parameter is substituted with the drive and directory where the temporary files to be scanned are located.
From the error message, it looks like PA does not replace the %d in the command parameters with that information.
PA’s helpfile does not give any information on how replaceable parameters should be specified in the AV setup.
Since we didnt change anything, it definetly isnt something on our side.
It would help if you add an option to give the path and filename to a commandline scanner.
