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 Shell Extensions
I installed the new version of PA on an XP machine and it seems that the Extraction Shell extensions (e.g. Extract To; Extract to here, etc) will not work. I installed and reinstalled several times, but to no avail. It does work on another computer I have, so it may be something in the operating system. Is there some software configuration that would block the shell extensions from working?
Any help or advice on this would be appreciated!
what exactly happens? Try resetting options by going to Options> Reset to default…
Basically, if I right click on a zip archive, and then click on “Extract Archive To”, “Extract Here”, or “Extract Archive to subfolder”, nothing happens (no PA window opens to show activity and no files are extracted from the archive). What is wierd is the Compression Shell Extensions work fine, it is only the Extraction ones that are not working.
I tried resetting to defaults as you suggested and this did not solve the problem.
Thanks for your help.
did you restart computer after installation?
I discovered the problem. I had CuteFTP 8 Professional installed on this computer which has shell integration for Windows Explorer. When I turn off CuteFTP’s shell integration, PA works fine. Apparently CuteFTP is overriding PA somehow.
Thanks again for your help.
thats very strange… is that the latest version of Cute FTP Pro?
Yes, it is latest version (8.05).
