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.
Pa crashes when changing different windows/views
Testing 11.50.30 this morning and was greeted with this screen…shortly followed by a violation screen and then the program crashed…on restart I discovered I was unregistered and the program had gone back to default settings.
at the time of using PA I was exploring the bug reported in this thread by using different views and settings…I guess I pushed PA to it’s limits and it didn’t like it.
I was able to repeat the crash several attempts later but I’m guessing you guys need additional information or do I just test the next release ?
no, we need report, i moved it into separate thread… thanks
I have been trying to recreate the bug that happened to me on about 3 occassions earlier today but upto now no success I’m afraid.
my system has been checked for malaware/spyware and any virus but my system came up clean which pretty much eliminated any outside influences.
I’ll run some additonal tests tomorrow to try and once again recreate the crash.
it is hardly possible it is virus or malware… just set of specific usage pattern… if you let me know what you did, i will try to reproduce it here.
I’ve followed my steps as closely as I could remember because I was opening and closing many different aspects of PA to find any other faults.
I can’t give you specifics I’m afraid…I wish I could judging by the result but as I said I will test more later in the day to see if I can possibly recreate it…it happened on about 3 occassions but since registering PA for the 3rd time I’ve been unable to recreate the fault.
all I was doing at the time was recreating the fault as reported in the original post you moved this thread from.
ok, let me know if you reproduce it again
… all I was doing at the time was recreating the fault as reported in the original post you moved this thread from.
Switching interfaces - Modern / Classic / Modern ?
Were you only using Classic (default) or did you try with classic skins?
Did you re-install PA during this testing, or restart Windows - or just continue switching with different views/settings?
I’ve lost Q.A.T. a few times as I posted (and I see it is missing in your screenshot - among other issues), but I have never had a crash.
it is not the same issue, thats why i moved it…
Beta 2 is out, please check it out via web update or download page. Thanks!
haven’t been able to recreate this problem in beta 1 and beta 2 seems fine at present.
