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 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.
Pa10.21.17 configuration hangs
When switching to another window while the configuration menu is open (to caputre a path, for example), pa hangs on return in w98 and xp.
The config menu is hidden behind pa, is still active, but does not have focus. This can be shown by shrinking pa smaller than config BEFORE SWITCHING AWAY, so that a portion of config is still visible on return. However, pa itself is completely unresponsive, of course, so the only recovery is closing pa with task man when none of the config menu is visible.
Also, when this happens, pa is still on the taskbar and in taskman, but not in the alt-tab view. Sometimes it is possible to recover by switching away again and returning to pa in task man.
Thanks for the default snap-to and launch speed, but this was a large nuisance to get them!
workaround is to put focus on another window, and then PA will come back.
Basically click on Internet Explorer (example) on the taskbar to maximize it, and then again to minimize it, and PA window will return properly focused.
We hope to solve this issue in upcoming update.
The same can happen with “tip of day” window
