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.
30-40 seconds before I can use beta4
Over 30-40 seconds before I can use Powerarchiver 2009 beta 4.
Not 100% sure if you would class this as a bug or not but here goes.
If I have PA startup location set as last open folder, then I am getting a heck of a delay when starting PA and it is unusable until the files appear. CPU usage is very high nearly 50%. Now admittedly there is 2.5 gig of archives in there and 30-40 seconds may be acceptable, but I can’t remember seeing this behaviour in the past. But as I usually have PA startup location elsewhere I maybe just overlooked it.
If I have PA startup location set to an empty folder I can use it instantly, I then can open the folder with those 2.5 gigs worth of archives and it displays them immediately. No lag or high CPU usage then, which is what makes me wonder if it is a bug after all.
you are using explorer view? and if you go to classic view, it works fine?
i got it, will check it out
Yes I was using explorer view. Classic view shows no files when I run PA, so the delay is not there.
Is that the right behaviour ? it’s so long since I used PA in that setting I can’t remember if it should be showing the files there when I open PA or not. :o
we found why it happens - it is due to explorer component checking out zip and cab archives to show them in treeview to the right… It is slow if you have huge zip files.
Now we are looking what can we do about it… thanks
probably, do you have zip/cab archives shown in the treeview to the left after you click on +?
They appear in the treeview after 30-40 seconds.
That’s after the high CPU occurs (where it looks like PA is not responding). Which pretty much follows the behaviour of the bug here.
As I stated in the other thread
There are about 30 pae files in the folder all around 90Mb in size, so you might need something similar to duplicate it, or maybe not.
Which incidentally is the same folder that I was using when I reported this one.
Please check Beta 5 via web update and see if this issue is still happening… Thanks!
Now opens instantly. Fixed.
