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.
Trayicon remains after extraction
The PA Trayicon is still there even if the extraction of an archive is complete. You have to click on the PA trayicon, so it will disappear
What exactly are you extracting? Or does it not matter?
More info please…
PA icon in the tray could only left if you clicked on “Tray” while extracting and the extraction finished - but in this case a ballon showed up saying “Extraction of … finished. Click here…” and it would stay until you click on ballon or the PA icon itself.
is it possible that the ballon showed up for a few seconds and then the trayicon will vanish
PowerArchiver tray icon + ballon should disappear after some time - please wait for about 15 seconds and you should see.
I waited 15 seconds.
The ballon dissappear but the trayicon remains in tray
Hm, is this happening from main PA window or when using explorer shell extensions?
it happens on both
I cant reproduce it on my computer, however it takes around 30-40 secs of baloon&icon to dissapear (not only on PA - Windows baloons as well).
I can reproduce it on Win2k - I thought it was a feature !
Extract via shell and click on tray button.
On finishing the ballon shows, do nothing and the ballon disappears.
Still do nothing and tray icon stays - letting me know that extraction completed.
So, to me, I can go for a coffe and on return I can hover over icon and see which file I was working on :D
Note 1: Just tried on win98 and didn’t get the balloon - but the tray icon remained until clicked. Just testing but waited over three minutes after unzipping completed (although hover tooltip stopped at 99% complete)
Note 2: In both cases I have taskbar on “Auto-Hide” - is that relevant?
Icon still there on Win98 - now 20 minutes (I like this) :D
Might be connected with Auto Hide, will check this - I am not sure if this is an Windows feature that PA follows or do we actually make the icon dissapear after a while…
bug is still there in PA 9.1 Final
bug is still there in PA 9.1 Final
Behaviour differes in different versions of Windows. I am not sure if we have ability to control it. We will check it a bit more for 9.2.
