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.
9.02 bug, cannot extract .exe's anymore
Since 9.02, say if I download something like a display driver, I cannot extra the .exe anymore, however with WinRar I can.
In general, extracting from sfx (tried with Zip and 7z exe) files works for me.
Can you give more information :-
Does this problem occur with all sfx (exe) files?
When downloading, are you saving to disk first or trying to “open” immediately ?
What format has the exe been compressed with?
Can you provide a link so it can be tested?
Go and download the latest ATI drivers from www.ati.com on the front page. Save them to your HD, then right click and go extract here, it will give you a “invalid archive error”.
I downloaded WinXp version of “tv-capture-wdm-6-14-10-6246.exe”
This can be opened with 7zip and WinZip - but not PA :confused:
Thanks for confirming, this is a pretty bad and annoying bug. I hope it can get resolved soon.
It is not an bug, we removed the support for some SFX’s because new CAB sfx support had some issues, and we will not put it back in until they are solved. We reverted back to the pre-9.00 support, so all SFX’s that worked then, will work now as well.
thats a bad idea it might have some issues so do all file types nonme are perfect. if you don’t add this support back you will lose some people who require this support. You have 7zip support but 7zip is forever changing and you have winrar support but that is a little buggy due to winrars dll so why take the sfx support off for these type of files as it is stupidto do so i personally would of had a warning message wused when trying to access these file types instaed. personal choice.
Please read my post carefully - support was moved from certain CAB SFX’s not all of them, and basically what happened was it would make browsing CAB SFX’s show error msg’s all the time, and that happened for ALL CAB SFX’s - this also included WinXP SP2, which was reported on these forums month ago. You could not browse that file and now you can.
I will close this thread and will post when we update the CAB SFX support again.
