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.
Problems with tar.gz files in 11.50.23
since I upgraded to 11.50.23, PA has problems opening tar.gz files.
On my Vista x64 quad-core machine, it shows me a CRC error.
On my XP x86 single-core machine it just hangs up without an error.
The error seems to occur turing the .tar phase, so extracting the .gz first seems to work.
This happens with every tar.gz file I’ve tried so far, but opening .zip or .rar still works.
PS: I really love the changes you’ve made in the newest version. Thanks for such an awesome product.
can confirm a problem when opening a tar file…
program just hangs and I have to close it via task manager.
thanks a lot!
I receive this CRC error too.
Easily reproducable because it happens with every .tar.gz file.

yes, should be fixed in next release! thanks
seems to be working fine for me now in 11.50.28
but I have a question regarding the use of .tar and the ‘store’ method.
I tested this option but it didn’t create any file for me even after several attempts.
yes, we know :-)… thats why .28 was not official.
.30 is up and should be good with tar files…
Please check your issue with latest 11.50.30 release:
and let us know if this works better now.
working fine for me in 11.50.30
not only that but both compression and decompression of tar.gz/bz2 should be a lot faster now :-)
