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.
Crash when trying to create LHA
Here’s a step-by-step description of the problem I referred to in an earlier post. I am using Windows XP. Problem originally seen with SP1, and now also with SP2.
1. Start the Power Archiver application.
2. Click the button labelled “New” to start creating a new archive.
3. In the New Archive dialog box, select a suitable folder and file name for the new archive, and select “Save as type: LHA”.
4. In the Add dialog box, select some files to add to the new archive. Click Add.
=> At this point, I get a message box saying “Access violation at address 0065E71E in module ‘POWERARC.EXE’. Write of address 023D964E.”
5. Press OK. The message box disappears, and I am back at the Add dialog box.
6. Press Cancel to exit the Add dialog box - get the same access violation. Try everything - Cancel, Add, “X” (close) in the title bar, whatever I try I get the access violation.
7. The only way to exit Power Archiver at this stage seems to be to use Task Manager to end the process.
I can not reporoduce this, can you please use Options> Set Installation Defaults and see if it still happens? In might be some other specific option that you are using with it.
p.s. you are using 9.01.01 right?
Yes, I have downloaded and tried with the latest release and with installation defaults. Same result, unfortunately. I wonder if it’s something to do with my machine’s configuration, if it’s not a problem on your machines.
