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.
Power Archiver Opens When Windows Program Is Opened
A weird problem indeed….
Whenever I open a native Windows program (i.e. calculator, notepad, etc…) the power archiver window opens up instead asking to password protect the file!
If I cancel the action and restart the application all is well.
Any assistance on solving this would be greatly appreciated.
Running Win XP SP2 all patches, 2.8 GHz P4 1 MB Ram computer. Virus clean, trojan clean, spyware clean, adware clean, HiJack This log does not show any abnormal entries.
weird… what version of PowerArchiver are you using?
This started with version 9.60 and has continued on and off since that time. I removed the app (9.64) and removed any entry from the registry referring to PowerArchiver or Power Archiver. I reinstalled the app (9.64) and have not had any problems so I’ll post back if the problem returns.
Just Be careful when removing registry items, if you dont know what you are doing dont do it!
Maybe someone who has expereince with PA Registry Items can let us know there source and how to correctly delete them.
I have a good understanding of registry values and structure but would need to spend some time looking up PA’s values. so If someone has done this already then great share the knolage please.
