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.
Registration code problems
I’m using Vista Ultimate and have been able to use PA2007 with some success.
I deleted my windows profile (changed the machine to another domain). Since it’s a clean user I have to enter the registration code again. It accept the code and ask me to restart PA2007, but PA2007 will remain unregistered.
The registration code is Ok since it worked before the profile was deleted. My user is non admin.
I also have problem that I have to enter the admin password everytime I open a archive.
Also tried to register as an admin user, but same problem.
- registration codes: if PA starts unregistered, codes are not good. Go to your account (top left button) and get PA 2007 codes
- Admin password - you probably set PA to start as Admin, and Vista then asks you to login. Right click on PA icon and disable starting as Admin option.
If you need more help with registration, contact support via support form above…
Ok, thanks just had to get a new serial. Stupid of me not thinking I need a new key upgrading to 10.10.07.
No, haven’t set PA to start as administrator. It asks for password when it tries to assosiate files with powerarchiver (_pasetup.exe /paassosiate)
I can fix this problem with giving my user local admin privilegies and assosiate, and then remove admin. But sometimes it tries to assosiate again. That’s a bit annoying, can live doing it once.
well thats something else - you indeed need admin priviledges in order to register file associations or change them.
