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.
Error when compressing large directories with 7z
In the course of compressing large directories (4-6 Gb) with upwards of 10,000 files on maximum settings PowerArchiver Crashes with the following error:
AppName: powerarc.exe AppVer: 188.8.131.52 ModName: powerarc.exe
ModVer: 184.108.40.206 Offset: 00001d59
I am also including the error reporting file from MS.
The current directory I am zipping is 6.43 Gb with 11,685 files
This happens at different points in the zipping process, sometimes at 35% or 5% or anywhere inbetween. The 7-Zip program itself has no problem with compressing the directory.
Please help. If you need any additional information please let me know.
can you try replacing 7zip dll from 9.62 with one you have now in 9.63 and see if that works?
also, can you reboot your computer so you get latest shell extensions please?
and how much memory do you have? Ultra setting is very memory intesive…
I am attempting to compress it again now after following your posts. With 6.4 Gb of files to compress it may take a while. I’ll post again by tomorrow if it crashes again.
I am using Maximum settings, not Ultra. The machine I am using is a P4 3.2 ghz HT with 2 Gb pc3200 RAM, Abit IC7-G Mobo, Windows XP SP2, and Radeon 9800XT 256mb.
edit I am also using 2 200gb drives, with ~95Gb free space on each.
are you compressing it via shell extensions or via main PowerArchiver window?
I have tried both, same results.
So far I am at 57% and no crash.
BTW thanks for the name fix :o
Seems to have worked, I’ll let you know if it happens again
just to confirm - reboot has worked?
Okay I was able to compress the entire directory with no errors. However, I am now having another problem. While trying to convert(using the ‘convert’ shell ext) 460+ zip files (all contain pdf’s, each zip is between 5k and 200 Mb in size) it crashes about every 20-50 files during compression with the same type of error I was having with the large directory compression.
I am using the 9.62 module you pointed me to, and a reboot has not helped this problem.
