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.
PA1001 BUG: PA clobbers Windows 'Transition Effects' settings
OS: Windows 2000 SP4 with all current updates
PA: PowerArchiver 2007 10.01
When PowerArchiver is run with the Classic theme, the Windows “Use transition effects for windows and tooltips” (Display control panel, Effects tab) is disabled. This means that when the Taskbar is set to “auto hide”, it snaps straight up instead of ‘scrolling’ up from the bottom of the screen.
As far as I can tell, there is no valid reason for PowerArchiver to be changing this setting, much less changing it without asking.
Reverting to PA 9.64 stops this behaviour, so I am led to think this may be an issue with the new theme engine.
Steps to reproduce:
Set Taskbar to Auto Hide (R-click taskbar, Properties, check Auto Hide box)
Set transition effects to ‘Fade’ (Display control panel, Effects, Use Transition Effects for Windows and Tooltips enabled and ‘Fade’ selected from adjacent dropdown)
Note that the taskbar ‘scrolls’ up into view when the mouse is moved to the bottom of the screen
Run PowerArchiver, set skin to “Classic”
Note that the taskbar now ‘snaps’ up instead of scrolling
Note that the taskbar still ‘snaps’
Open Display control panel, Effects tab
Note that the Transition Effects have now been partially disabled.
