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.
7z Spanned Archive
I am unable to open a spanned archive in the 7z format. Creating a spanned 7z archive in both PA and 7-Zip - neither would open in PA. I did open a spanned 7z file with 7-Zip, created with PA. Tested PA with spanned ‘zip’ and ‘rar’ archives, created in PA and WinRAR respectively – these opened fine in PA. The challenge seems to be limited to opening spanned 7z archives in PA.
test.7z.001 is what your forum said it was so i could not upload it though it is just one archive (1 file)
hope this helps i created a 7zip archive with spanning options of 1.2mb disk and it created ok the file was actuallytest. on disk however powerarchiver came up after creating it that it could not open this. However winrar 7zip archiver and another one opened it ok.
there was no warning when i created a 7zip file with the same name using the same steps above. It could not recognise the file so no warning even though other 7zip archivers did produce warnings when over writing it.
Same issue here, PA creates spanned .7z files perfectly, however it cannot extract the files (have to use another archiver program to extract).
this was due to changes in 7z dll that we did not notice - we fixed it in “upcoming” release…
this has been fixed in beta 1…
