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.
PA2007 Beta 4 heavy problems
I have huge problems using PA2007 / beta 4.
As you find in the attached images, I will get a weird message at start and cannot end powerarchvier due to the second message.
I already uninstalled completely.
It would be helpful to describe the steps necessary to produce your problem (i.e. precisely what were you doing that led up to the errors?). What is your OS, etc.
It actually appears right after installation and at every start.
First installation was an upgrade from Beta 3.
I am running a Windows XP Multi-Language Edition with German Language-Pack running (this is also stated in my signature btw.).
I just have to start PA for it to happen. It is reproduceable every time.
I did a full uninstall and then tried to reinstall with no change :-(
nice, thank you!
Shell extension is also not working at all.
Neither extract to… nor Extract to folder.
An open through double click will open powerarchiver, give the error on start and then will NOT load the double tabbed zip.
I have to manually open the file through the menu.
did you try restarting after installation?
what is double tabbed zip?
yes, restarted a couple of times.
before install, after install, before deinst etc.
tabbed should have meant tapped :-)
just a typo.
Regards and good night
Ok, now I am really stuck.
The beta3 installation does not work anymore.
It comes up with a requester showing the temp-directory as installation source.
I never got the PA to uninstall correctly, so I had to stop the process.
it looks like the MSI installation is buggy as it does not react on some situations.
I will try to clean my system if possible.
Maybe it helps.
Anytime the installation stucks, the _PASetup.exe takes nearly 100 % CPU and will never stop.
did you uninstall Beta 4 properly through Add/Remove programs?
If you cant, because you deleted files from the folder, download Beta 4 again and run it… it will give you an option to Uninstall then.
I have found the problem.
Somehow the permissions on the HKCU\Software\Powerarchiver was not set right.
Administrator had only read-access.
This leads to the problem, that the deinstall hangs, the start cannot write the settings, so that seems to be the message.
Although I don’t know who set read-access rights, I have done some changes so this error message doesn’t show in the future even if the access is read-only.
