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 B2 quirk
I installed this level and things turned weird. Maybe it was some settings - but I wouldn’t expect those to change.
From Windows Explorer [Windows XP Pro Sp2] I right click on a .tar file and no PA related options shown… just generic open.
when I chose to open file using PA 2009, no file contents shown.
Funny ribbon stuff which I cannot configure away.
Lots of screen space devoted to ftp, which I don’t use.
Reverted to PA2007 and things working as expected.
Will try later betas, but this seemed pretty rough. At least my machine didn’t crash!
Welcome to PA forums and thank you for posting your suggestions!!!
I tried resproducing what was reproducable from your post and couldn’t.
1.) What do you mean by “just generic open”? Did PA options show at all when you right clicked? Do you have shell extensions selected in Configuration>Shell Extensions?
2.) How are you opening the file?
3.) “Funny ribbon stuff which I cannot configure away.”
I have no idea what this means. Please re-define.
4.) You have the option of turning off the FTP window or reducing its size to your preference.
