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.
The longer the better?
this is just a shot in the dark but maybe someone could help me. :) The thing is that earlier this week I needed to packed batch of files and put a password on it. And so I did. I didn’t use any compression it was all about password. And because I needed it to be safe I used a citation from a book (exactly 972 symbols), copy-paste method. Well, when it was packed I tried again copy-paste method and unpacked. Everything worked, so I deleted the original files.
But today (after hdd format and winXP reinstall) I tried to unpack the archive just like I did few days before … and it just won’t work.
When I copy the pass PA just creates an empty folder and that’s it no other actvity or error message. I also tried to use older version - the same I used for creating the archiv - but it’s all the same.
When I try to use first 128 symbols of the pass it says that password is wrong. When entered 129 and more -does nothing, like I said before.
Well I know that it was stupid to use such a long password (don’t judge, I’m only human), but I hope that someone might have something to say and help me. :o
Another thing just crossed my mind - the password is composed of some special symbols (á,č,š,ř,ž…) I’m from CZE … but first time it worked, so …
Anyway, thx for every idea…
did something else changed as well? maybe you had different computer/os? Thinking about those special symbols and maybe different language setting that may have affected it…
and yeah, long, long, long, long! I will enter it as an bug (support for too many letters).
The only thing I can think about is new RAM modules, OS is same, language settings was probably the same as it’s now - I’m not aware of changing it … so I guess now it’s just a big pack of trash :)
check your Control Panel> Regional and Language> Formats, and see if something there could be done differently now from then…
