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.
Exception while creating thread
this is the error I get when I try to double click an item in the zip file to open it…in particular an image file and only when the file has been encrypted.
the fault doesn’t occur with text files.
it still opens the image in question but the error box remains.
I tested png/jpg and gif images and all result in the error…psd files however work fine.
what kind of archive is it? is the preview on? explorer view? classic interface?
encrypted zip file…tried it in all aspects of PA and same result.
yes, but it works fine here… so it has to be more specific than just encrypted file with image inside.
what can I tell you then…
tested several zip files with encryption and the error appears every time when viewing either a jpg/gif or png.
without encryption PA works fine.
same error when I use the 7z option also with encryption.
also tested cab file with encryption and same error again.
can you send me your registry key, zipped, to support @ conexware . com
sent key as requested…hope I sent correct information
We found the issue. Issue was not only with enrypted files inside archive, but with all files associated with Microsoft Windows Picture Viewer. Will be corrected in next issue.
strange why it should only surface in this version…what changed I wonder?
Please check beta 3 via web update or download page and let us know if this issue has been fixed… thank you!
working fine in beta 3…
