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.
Add files without asking archive file name
Say I have default PA open with empty left panel and
the smaller preview right panel.
Now I drag and drop files using Explorer from whatever folder into the left panel of PA.
They are in various folders, so I want to pick a file here and select a file there, i.e. I want to keep on adding files until I am finished, without PA asking me for a filename though….!
How to do that ??
Secondly, I have a dozen files in the left window panel, that I have been able to add, without PA prompting me for a archive-file…
I control-A select them all, then I click on SFX maker-wizard. Within the wizard I donot want to again select files to be archived, they shd be there in SFX maker.
I only need to insert a name there, PA shd use a password that I have inserted into PA as being my default pw and then the file is created.
Is this possible ?
you have to create an archive first and then you can add to it all you want, all day long…
as to the wizard - i am not sure how would that work with various different scenarios - try creating an wish in wishlist forums and we will take an look…
