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.
Cannot install PowerArchiver 2007 Update
today I tried to install the latest Update of PowerArchiver 2007.
But the installation fails at about 75%, I think my MSI (MS Installer) is broken.
I tried to reinstall MSI with the help of a link I found in this board.
But after this, all was the same as at the beginning.
Can someone explain me what to do to get MSI or PowerArchiver working? Or better both ;)
Is there a possibility to get a log from the Setup?
I tried this:
powerarc101g /l! C:\power.log
it’s a lower L behind the /
because I know that there are MSI Options, every MSI Installer understands.
But it doesn’t work! Maby there is a typo?
please help me
I’m having the same issue as well with my registered version of powerarchiver. Looking at the error messages it seems to be unable to find the original install file of the old version so it can uninstall it. Any thoughts?
hmm I reinstallt windows and installt the new version. no problem.
maybe try to uninstall the old one first and then install the new one.
perhaps there is a bug in the new installer.
I tried uninstalling it through add/remove programs and the same error box pops up as during the installation of the new one, asking for the setup.msi for the old powerarchiver, then reporting it cannot uninstall it until it gets it. I’d be fine with manually removing it, but I don’t think I’d get enough out for the new installer to work properly.
Problem comes from deleting original installation or any part of installation.
If you do that, you have to manually remove Windows Installer entry for PowerArchiver.
Here is Windows Installer Cleaner:
Run it and remove PA 2007 entry. That will make everything work properly.
Unfortunatly, this is how Windows Installer works, and if: .msi package or any part of install is missig, you have to do process above, it will not ignore old installation (which I believe it should).
And we have to use Windows Installer for Certified for Vista compliance :-).
Works like a charm! Thank you all for your assistance!
