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.
My PA 2007 impressions
I’m a new Power Archiver user and I have some comments and suggestions regarding latest 2007 beta versions.
First, some GUI ones:
SFX Wizard text is not centered correctly, there is one more pixel on the right side; there are two ways to solve this little glitch: 1. the hard way - redesign (resize) all windows in that menu; 2. the easy way - use two rows for writing SFX Wizard; there is enough room to do it and it could be done easily :)
And some requests:
could you make last options dialog to be the default one when I look again through the options? Currently, clicking on the options windows will always send me to the same place…
after changing an option/dialog/etc or trying to modify something and pressing ok/cancel PA will always send me to the default archive folder; this one is a really annoying behaviour and I can’t understand it. Why shouldn’t I be in the same folder after trying to modify something?
memory consumption could be improved a little bit, the beta takes about 40 MB of my system
same thing about performance: it takes visible time (~ 2 seconds) only to start and archive a small folder; I have a Barton XP 2500+ and 1 GB RAM so this shouldn’t take so long
interface - most of the changes are planned. Columns are aligned as in Windows though.
Memory usage depends on what you are using - use classic interface with classic view, and it will be much smaller.
Use modern interface, with explorer view, and it has to take more memory due to custom controls.
It is mostly shared memory though, actual memory in use is more like 10 MB.
Almost all UI glitches were fixed in the latest version, good job.
There is only one I could see for now: the white space that sorrounds the text in the Check for new version window.
