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 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.
One way to use AVG 7 with PA 2006
I’ve been searching for the answer for a while, and with a little investigative work I found a method that works. It isn’t perfect but it produces the desired results.
I searched through the registry for any clues on how a file can be scanned from the context menu. I only found a path to avgse.dll, which of course will not work. No mention anywhere of variables that could be used in the parameters for it. However, I did find that you can put a path and file after the /SE switch.
I created a folder on my hard drive called PATemp
Changed the Temp Location, in the Folders tab, to this new folder, e.g. C:\PATemp\
In Program Locations the Optional virus scanner field is C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG7\avgw.exe, and the parameters field contains /SE “C:\PATemp”
Now I haven’t used all of PA’s features, but the virus scan will create a temporary folder in PATemp and scan the files within. After the process ends PA deletes that temp folder. I can’t say for sure what other PA processes create a temp folder there, and whether or not they are deleted upon completion. This is where the imperfection comes in: if anything else is in that folder, AVG will scan it too.
Anyway, it works for me so I’m happy. :D
