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 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.
Wrong position when maximising
I have my taskbar located at the top of the screen, rather than the bottom. When I maximise PA 2007 (all versions – currently 10.00.42), the window does not cover the available space, but is moved downwards in its entirety leaving a gap between the taskbar and the PA window that matches the height of the taskbar. PA’s statusbar drops off the bottom of the screen. I’ve also noticed that, unlike other programs, PA slips behind the Google sidebar when maximising.
Other things that may be relevant:
- 2 adjacent monitors, both at 1680x1050
- Google sidebar docked at the far right (tried disabling it, no effect)
- using UltraMon (tried disabling it, no effect)
- position is fine when taskbar is at the bottom of the screen
we will check it out - btw, latest version is 10.01.03…
p.s. are you using modern or classic interface?
Good point. I use the classic interface. When using modern, the positioning is correct (although it still slips behind the Google sidebar).
thats interesting, common sense says that modern is the one that shouldnt work and not classic…
and what OS?
Hadn’t really used modern since I can’t find anything anymore. Took me 3 minutes to find the way back to the classic interface :)
I’m running Windows XP SP2 (I’ve also tried using different Windows visual styles to no avail).
thanks - we will take an look for .02 and let you know if we have any questions!
