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.
Archives not in Recent Documents
Archives used to show up in Recent Documents in the Start Menu, now they don’t. I’m using the latest version. Is this something that you have done? Or is s. th. wrong with my Windows?
what version of windows do you have. Have you installed any other compression program?
no problems my end and i have the lastest version with windows 2000
All upgrades and service packs. I have 9.51.02 of PowerArchiver. It doesn’t seem to have worked since the upgrade to ths version. Now I never see Archives appearing in the recently used documnts. Do they only appear if you save the archive? Or should they appear when you just open the archive. Previously they always appeared even if I just opened them.
Does anyone know how I can fix this?
there is probably some way to tell windows what YOU consider as “documents”. I can see the files are listed there, Windows just does not display those extensions. It is something related to WinXP and not PA.
As far as I know, Windows XP handles zip files as folders and make its search within zip files too.
To avoid this you have to unregister the “zipfldr.dll” and, after that, make the PowerArchive association again.
To unregister (“Start>Run”):
regsvr32 /u c:\windows\system32\zipfldr.dll
To register again (default XP):
I have done it in my system and all went fine. Make a Restore Point just in case…
