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.
BUG: When using Up/Down cursor keys navigate XPSP2 network install SFX
An error message is displayed saying that “PowerArchiver cannot open this filoe. It does not appear to be a valid archive.”, which is odd because the archive is alreaady open.
This problem occurs with the XP SP2 network install SFX file (WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.exe) when using the up/down cursor keys to move up/down the folder tree.
- Open WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.exe in PA 9.01 (This can take a while)
- Expand the i386 folder in the folder tree
- Highlight the drw folder in the folder tree
- Use the cursor keys to move down to the images folder, then up very quickly (ie. before the contents of images is read)
** The error message is displayed
This repeatable and happens every time.
I loaded the XP SP2 network install file into PowerArchiver 9.01 and extracted all the files. There were a couple of problems:
The progress window was displayed, but no progress was actually shown even though the files were extracted OK.
After all the files had extracted the progress window was not closed and remained open. The “Minimize” and “Tray” buttons worked (although the PA tray icon was completely white instead of the normal PA icon colours) but the “Cancel” button did nothing. I could also use the main PA window (ie. the progress window had given the focus back to the main PA window)
I will look into XP SP2 problems…
I found some errors in our new CAB SFX support engine so I returned old (from 9.00.xx) CAB SFX engine which should work fine with XP SP2. It is little bit slower because it makes CAB archive in $TEMP folder of original CAB SFX file, but seems to work OK with XP SP2.
I also found that strange behaviour of our new CAB SFX engine depends on installed CABINET.DLL in your system, so deipotent can you please send me CABINET.DLL found in your c:\Windows\System32 folder.
It seems that XP SP2 can be extracted (even progress bar is not shown) with some CABINET.DLL and with some now.
