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.
PowerArchiver file associations …
why does PowerArchiver associate all known archive types when I click the associate button in the configuration menu or when I use the regfiles.exe binary in the PowerArchiver directory.
If the regfiles.exe binary would only associate the archive types selected in the configuration menu, it would be very useful because we use this tool to ensure that all archives are associated in the right way.
Is there a possibility to make the tool work in this way?

REGFILES.EXE is distributed with older versions of PA (<= 8.8) and it is used ONLY by installation. There is no other way this file was used. Of course, it used to install PowerArchiver with all known file associations so if someone wanted to associate all of them, he could run REGFILES.EXE.
Since v9.0 REGFILES.EXE has been changed with _PASETUP.EXE. Very similar but more powerful.
If you run this utility without parameters, it wouldn’t associate any file (even those checked in Configuration).
If you run with parameter /associate it WILL associate:
- ALL files if there is no registry entry:
- ONLY THOSE FILES that are specified with
So this utility is not for home users. It is for multi-user environemnts where administration has set default archives that should be associated with PA in given registry key. Given key is similar to ‘HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PowerArchiver\General\Associated Archives’.
B.t.w. “Associate” button from Configuration window should work fine - it should associate only files checked in Configuration window. Also starting PA itself automatically checs for associations (that are checked in Conf. window).
So if you want to do as described in your post, create HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\…\General key and set value for ‘Associated Archives’ similar to your current user key. Then run _PASETUP.EXE /associate and it will do exactly you wanted.
- ALL files if there is no registry entry:
