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.
PA2009: Minor Registration Bug
One thing I noticed when trying to register PA2009: The registration code box doesn’t trim trailing spaces. While it’s a minor thing, it did cause me to do a double-take when the copy-paste job on my serial number failed.
Yeah, it’s a minor bug, but I knew what to look for after copying and pasting from webmail. Someone less savvy could easily get stuck and frustrated. A call to Trim() (or 2, if you also do the name edit box) would eliminate the problem and maybe even put a minor dent in support requests.
interesting, it kept doing it for me so i thought this was already implemented… thanks
I’m running under the assumption that PA is developed in Delphi. It certainly looks like it to this Delphi developer. :)
It depends on where you call Trim from. I’ve noticed that a TEdit’s OnExit event doesn’t fire if you click a button with the mouse when that TEdit has focus. If you’re doing it in a button’s OnClick handler (or an action’s OnExecute that’s bound to a button), then it really should just work.
At least, this is my experience up through BDS2006. I’m not running the Vista Feature Pack^W^W^WDelphi 2007 yet to see if this has changed – holding out for Tiburon. (Aside: Have you seen that Nick Hodges is referring to it as “Delphi 2009” in his blog? I’m hoping that it’s not getting pushed back AGAIN. Give me my Unicode, generics, and anonymous methods now please! :) )
thanks - i will make sure dev team checks this up for beta 2…
as to the delphi 2008 (!!!), didnt have time to read anything recently, but dear god we all need that Unicode, now!
