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.
Houston, we have a [hotkey] problem…
I’m accustomed to typing either:
Alt+F > X
Alt+F > C
…to close my Windows apps. In Classic skin mode, PA follows this standard, however, in Modern skin mode it doesn’t respond to the Alt+F hotkey input. I noticed that if you just tap the Alt key then you get some little helper popup keys displayed over the menus area, with ‘M’ displaying over the program menu circle in the upper left.
Now, 2 assumptions:
1. I’m assuming that ‘M’ was used instead of ‘F’ because ‘F’ was already used to map to the file menu when using the Classic skin mode.
2. I’m assuming that ‘M’ stands for “menu.”
These are both fine, however, by using the letter ‘M’ as the hotkey to expand the main (normally ‘File’) menu, it turns this hotkey combination into a 2-handed operation, which is bad. :(
1. If it’s possible to do so, using ‘F’ to expand the main menu would be ideal.
2. If that’s not possible then could we at least choose a letter of the alphabet that’s on the left-hand side of the keyboard?
From my experience, I’d say the majority of pc users use the right-handed keyboard/mouse setup (with the mouse on the right-hand side of the keyboard). The current hotkey combination negates the efficiency of using hotkey combinations. ;)
Hmm, Alt+F4 does indeed work- thanks for the tip as I wasn’t aware of that hotkey combination until now.
However, it is not very user-friendly ;) since it’s quite a stretch to activate and it also requires interrupting what I’m working on in order to look down at the keyboard to confirm finger placement. Alt-F > X allows a noticeably smoother workflow.
Also, I noticed a second but closely related quirk. In MS Word 2007, which also uses the new Office 2007 ribbons toolbar interface, the menu fires as soon as you type Alt+F. In PA you have to do:
In other words, Alt+M does nothing, you need to press and release Alt and then hit ‘M’ for the hotkey combination to trigger. Hmm, I guess that would make it by definition…not a hotkey combination, perhaps more closely resembling a turn-based strategy game… Care to play? :)
thats one of the parts we are definetly looking to improve for 10.2…
