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.
Encryption not recognized in Windows XP
I have created several encrypted archives on my machine at home. I tried taking one of them to work on my USB drive.
At work, I tried to open the archive. It opened fine. But when I try to access the files, and enter the password, nothing happens. It’s as if I am typing in a wrong password.
This even happens if I use Power Archiver 2000!
But if I use the shareware Power Archiver 2006 at work, all is well and it recognized the password.
Why do Windows, Winzip, and Power Archiver 2000 all not recognize the password I used in Power Archiver?
use latest powerachiver
and if still having a problem can u send us the file and with password and we will try to see if it work usually it can mean either a had disk faliure at encryption or your password is wrong. JHave any of the file go separte passowords. i have had this problem.
can you tell us your system windows xp 200 etc and what version of pa u are using and what file types are in the file and passowrd and as much detail as you can please
… Why do Windows, Winzip, and Power Archiver 2000 all not recognize the password I used in Power Archiver?
If you are trying Windows and WinZip, then I suppose you are creating a Zip archive ?
Also, you say you encrypted it - not just passwrod protect.
I think Windows only supports the (old) Zip password scheme and not encrypted files (but I am not certain).
PA 2000 (version 6 ??) also only supported Zip password and did not support encryption.
So I can guess it may be the same problem with WinZip.
Which encryption method did you use?
… But if I use the shareware Power Archiver 2006 at work, all is well and it recognized the password.
So, problem solved :p
WinZip will work fine as long as it is newer version of WZ, same with every other zip utility that supports PkZip 4.5 standards.
I am pretty sure that newer versions of Windows support it as well.
simple method did you encrypt with aes zip or pae encryption from the too bar menu in poawerarchiver as that format is not supported by windows.
