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.
What about creating a new product
I am a very big fan of e-mail.
Sometimes, particularly at work, where I don’t have PowerArchiver Installed, I would have the possibility to send messages with transparent autocompression of the attachments they contain.
The problem is that, PAOP, which does that marvelously, requires PowerArchiver to be installed to work.
In other words, it would be great if a Stand alone product does the same thing as PAOP curently does.
Does such a product have a chance to come in the future ?
since we are giving PAOP free to PA users, why not just use PAOP with PA installed? You dont have to use PA outside of PAOP usage…
Yes, but installing only a PAOP-like standalone product would be faster and using PAOP currently with pa require to update them both. Maintening a single product is easier too. And more simply why about an outlook addin, it would be easier than installing a product with a traditional installation scheme …
you dont need to update PA as much because most of the changes dont relate to the PAOP usage.
So it is really the same thing - if we had more time, we could create another version of PAOP, but it really doesnt make sense.
This way you can use latest version of PA, with all the updates you might need, or just use whatever you have installed…
We dont have time for 2 separate versions of PAOP for no valid reason.
Ok, no matter, I found a solution…
Good bye !

Tell us what your email address is and I’ll make sure you get some then :D I try to accomodate ;)
