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.
PA 2007 RC1 Password Manager
I use your Password Manager on a regular basis at home and work in order to encrypt files and not have to re-enter my password each time I open it.
However, On uninstall and update of the new RC1 I lost all my saved passwords. (I understand that this would happen)
Is there a way in future that I can export a dll or copy a reg file which contains my saved passwords and on install of new version or on new computer I can copy across the file to the PA Directry??
This would be a great way of ensuring all systems can access encrypted content but the user doesnt know what the password is too!
Please help as I dont want to have to re-enter all my passwords again on the next release of your fantastic product :) “apple with that sir”
did you uninstall before RC1? And if so, why?
I uninstalled Beta10 due to an issue with upgrading from 9 to 10beta which was raised in the forum.
I have recently just uninstalled the old version and made a clean install to ensure that its issue free. “esspecially when dealing with betas”
is it possible to extract the data in Password Manager? obvisoly this would be encoded or encrypted so you can’t read it raw.
you can save PPM registry key and just execute it later on… but you have to do it on the same system, you can transfer it to another computer…
it doesnt work, I exported the following key before i cleared the passwords
then clicked on it to activate the settings and they arnt there.
The Passwords Stored in PA Password Manager must be kept somewhere in a file or Registry if I could find it I would be able to keep regular backups.
Its very close:
Cheers! tested and works! and the passwords pluss location in the registry streem are encoded so I a user can see the result!
I created a self extracting registry file of the passwords and deployed it on my network at home to update each users system and everyone was able to use an encrypted file without having to input a password!
(I can see this coming in very handy security wise!) Thanks PA!
