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.
PA 2007 will not recognize RAR archives above *.R01. Is this a configuration thing? What needs to happen here?:confused:
There is no need/benefit in “recognising” R08, R67 etc.
Besides, partial extraction is not supported.
this is a good point to make 7zip file manager supports this so why not pa, it can be done and is needed the other day at work i had to install the 7zip file manager cause of this program with pa. This will ecrtainmly drive custoimers away and towards winrar
I’m glad it’s not my ineptitude. If I went in to folder options and related all the file extensions to PA RAR files it would probably work, but c’mon…another option would be to rename all the files using a batch renamer utility like File Renamer to have *_part1.rar as a name instead of *.R01…etc. That I know would work. The question is how much work should one have to do for a product that says they support such file types?
But why is it necessary/needed :confused:
*.rar. *.r00 and *.r01 are associated - I don’t see a benefit having “anyname.r28” associated.
The work involved is to “bloat” the registry with 98 silly extension associations - this is why RAR changed their naming scheme in the first place.
what i think he is trying to say yes it would be nice to have them associated. However the point that he also made was that you can not extract files from an incomplete set of spanned rar files which you can do with the 7zip filke manager and why is this.
when will this be fixed
Wow, I’m dumb…It handles it with even less BS than I could’ve imagined…open the .rar and it grabs the rest…duh…:o
Ah now I see… You were referring to extracting, not the assoicated icons etc.
A misconception (they must be associated in order to extract) is not dumb by any means - but it sometimes helps to “Just try it first” ;)
