Win 11 64 bit
I have some archives which have been encrypted, using the encrypt option either in pbs or when interactively creating a zip. When I open these, and look at files, I am asked for passwords, which I know, and then can view items or decrypt the files in the archive (tools>decrypt files).
However, when I use the Actions>Remove Archive Encryption (whether using the same zip or asking to write another), the routine shows progress bar to the end, but then just hangs i.e. “OK” never activates. All process information shows this stalled/hanging.
What can I do to sort this out?
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)
Text Field in Tips Dialogue Popup is Too Short Bug resurfaced in v10.20.02
I posted a bug about this earlier with a screenshot but that thread’s gone walkabout. As I’m too laz…ahem…busy, you’ll have to read this and use your imagination: “Show tips at startup if not opening an archi”
If you mean Tip Of the Day “dialogue” - it works for me … Both under Help and at Startup (with no archive).
Screen 1400x1050 :p
I’m using the latest Beta and browsed all the tips to see if any of them overlaped the message screen as well as to see if the text was to small/big etc…
I couldnt find anything.
Windows XP Pro (Resolution 1280 by 1024) (Dual Screen)
Sorry, maybe I wasn’t clear - it’s not the tips themselves that get cut off, it’s the text in the drop-down combo box:
“Show tips at startup if not opening an archi”
It’s supposed to be the word “archive” at the end there.
TBGBe, you’re running at a different resolution and may not be able to duplicate. Sir Richard, please try toggling the combo box to the longer of the 3 options and see if it does it for you as well. Thanks guys!
TBGBe, you’re running at a different resolution and may not be able to duplicate.
Agreed, that’s why I gave it - I was hoping you would say what resolution you are running to get the problem?
It’s showing for me at 1280 x 1024, same resolution as Sir Richard is running. I just didn’t think you’d want to bother changing your resolution, takes like 10 clicks to get to that screen in Vista. :o
Not so difficult on XP :p
1280 by 1024
1280 by 768
Even 800 by 600 :eek:
A picture says a 1,000 words ;)
Dam! I tried to replicate that in XP Pro, Home using all sorts of resolutions and it didnt show like that! maybe it is something to do with the way Vista Displays things???
“Im still waiting on my new Workstation to be built as the last one Blew up!” Using Dell Laptop at home, and HP Workstation at work with dual screen and XP Pro 64Bit.
So I’m unable to test in Vista :(
Dam! …maybe it is something to do with the way Vista Displays things???
Probably, need another Vista user to confirm …
Drop&down has been expanded little bit more for Beta 3. Hopefully it will be OK.
Please check with Beta 3 preview:
and let us know if it works properly now.
