Incorrect message for incorrect password



  • Trying to extract a password protected rar file (just one 75MB video) using shell, I entered a wrong password and PA gave me the “CRC error - continue YES/NO” dialog 😕

    Then I retried entering the correct password - extracted OK.

    Then I thought to check from PA GUI.
    But now when I tried to extract and entered an INCORRECT password, the file extracted OK :eek:

    Realised that PA had stored the correct password in Password Manager - should this be ignored when INCORRECT password is entered via dialogue? Or maybe have a “Use Password Manager” dialogue / Option instead?

    Then I deleted the stored password.

    Now incorrect password gave the same CRC dialogue.

    Then I tried again - but pressed Cancel on the Password entry dialogue (nothing entered). PA reported “incorrect password” :p followed by the “CRC Error dialogue” again.

    PA 11.00.55

    I am not sure if we can have better error - we will check.

    So PPMD is not used for shell - will see if we can add that as well… thanks!

    PPMD 😕
    Password Manager did store the password from shell - that’s why first incorrect password in GUI was ignored.
    Unless you mean the “ask to save password” dialogue - which does not appear from shell.

    wait - did it use password from PPM in shell or not?

    thanks



  • Sorry if I confused you.
    Sequence was

    1. download rar
      … new archive so no passwords stored
    2. extract through shell - using incorrect password
      … CRC error
    3. extract through shell - correct password
    4. Check in GUI with incorrect password
      … extracted ok
    5. deleted from password manager (stored from step 3)?

    etc.

    Didn’t use shell again - all further testing (Cancel etc) using GUI.
