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.
Drag and Drop Bug w/ Multiple Monitors
There’s a bug in 11.50.23. It’s existed for quite some time really, I just never bothered to report it before. I figure since you’re in a beta phase, now’s as good of a time as any. :)
I have a multiple monitor setup. If I have PowerArchiver on the secondary monitor (e.g. the one without the taskbar) and drag a file from an archive into an explorer window, the PowerArchiver window will disappear and reappear on the primary monitor.
It seems that the disappear and reappear act is due to showing the progress window. After testing with a larger archive, that’s exactly what happens: The main window disappears, the progress window appears (on the primary monitor), then the main window reappears on the primary monitor instead of the secondary monitor where it was originally.
Bump. Bug still exists in 11.50.37 (Beta 2).
Child dialogs (e.g. Configuration Window, About Screen) also don’t show up in the correct place when PA is on 2nd monitor. They’re showing up on the main monitor.
I’m going to dig around a bit. I wonder if this is a VCL bug?
I would also like to vote (again) to have these little multimon problems fixed.
thanks for the bumps… we will take an look.
Please check beta 3 via web update or download page and let us know if this issue has been fixed… thank you!
Yes, this is fixed all around for me with Beta 3 on XP SP 3. The progress window shows up where the window was, and the main window returns to its original position. Thank you!
There’s still a very minor bug in that if the child window to be shown is larger than the main window, and the main window is near the edge of the screen (or near the edge of a monitor), then the child dialog/window may show up partially off screen. But that’s a pretty minor thing.
screenshot for that issue?
Sure. Pic 1 shows the “ready” state. I positioned PA’s window near the edge of my monitor.
Then I went to open the configuration window. Since it’s larger than the main window, it completely obscures the main window. This is fine. The problem is it’s “centered” over the main window, so part of the window hangs offscreen. This is what pic 2 shows.
The same effect happens on a multi-monitor setup, only the child window shows up partially on the other monitor, but it’s harder to provide screenshots for. And you probably don’t want to see crappy pics from my cell phone. :)
so you want it centered on screen instead of PA?
No, centered over PA is great, just nudged to ensure that the entire window is on the current monitor.
It’s a very minor thing to me, and if it’s more trouble than its worth to fix, I’d rather see the current behavior over any other.
