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.
Various GUI settings not remembered
Running PowerArchiver 10.22.02 on WinXP Pro SP3. I’m having a minor but annoying problem: Various settings keep getting forgotten between PA runs.
One example is the “grid lines” setting. I enable it, and PA disables it for no apparent reason.
Another example is column settings. I order the columns as Name/Size/Packed/Ratio/Type/Modified/Attributes/Path, but PA rearranges them, usually by reversing the Type and Ratio columns. Also, I like to keep the Path column very wide, to accommodate long paths when they appear, but PA insists on senselessly narrowing the Path column to make it fit the window, forcing me to constantly resize it.
Yet another example is the “Highlight archives” setting. I enable it and change the highlight color to yellow, and PA disables that option again and resets the color to the default of blue.
do other settings work properly?
Yes. Just the GUI settings are lost sporadically.
does anyone else have the same issue with 10.22?
Cant replicate it on my uber release, so just to make sure it is something that wasnt system specific and that was fixed for “upcoming” release…
I can’t seem to replicate this on the Current Public Available Version nor any other version.
Using Windows XP Service Pack 3 with latest Windows Updates to date.
None of this occurring on my Windows XP SP3 or Vista SP1
