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.
Force 32-bit shell extensions on 64-bit XP/Vista
I am running currently WinXP x64 (maybe later also Vista x64) and PA 10.01.
Shell extensions in 64-bit Explorer are working fine.
But as I am using 32-bit Total Commander (no 64-bit version avaliable) as my primary file manager, I would like to switch on permanently the 32-bit extensions of PA, even at the price of completly disabling 64-bit support of PA if coexistense is not possible.
You will have to replace PASHLEXT.DLL from the PowerArchiver’s installation directory with the one we will send you over email. Just send email to support(a)conexware.com and we will get back to you.
Sometimes it is tricky to replace PASHLEXT.DLL becasue it may be in use, but you can do this imediatelly after Windows start by executing Command prompt and doing all this stuff under command prompt (not Windows Explorer).
It is working!
The final solution was to just overwrite the 64-bit version of PASHLEXT.DLL in the installation directory with the 32-bit version from the downloaded installation package (extracted with PA).
Under Win XP Pro x64 no safe mode was needed, just overwrite without using Explorer, reboot and go.
I’ve just tried this under Vista Ultimate 64 and it hasn’t worked for me. (I use Directory Opus 9 as my explorer replacement, which is a 32bit app.)
Before I replaced the PASHLEXT.DLL file I would only get the right click menu items in Explorer, not Directory Opus. After I replace the PASHLEXT.DLL with the 32bit version I get nothing :(
Any ideas would be welcome (currently relying on WinRAR as that’s pure 32bit and its shell integration is working in Directory Opus and Explorer.)
maybe svecinger can help you since he is using the same application?
