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.
PowerArchiver causing system crash?
Each time I try to open a zipped file with PowerArchiver, it causing my windows box to crash. I have isolated this to an issue with either windows or PowerArchiver, saince it has happened 4 times in the last 2 days. Each time I try to open a file, my system spontaneously reboots, and after it boots up I get a screen saying the system has recovered from a serious error. I have never had any troubles with PowerArchiver in the past and am not sure why this is happening. I’m not certain that it is PowerArchiver causing this, but it doesn’t happen with any other software.
Have you got a link to the zipped file causing problems ?
what system are you using and there is a known virus that only affects archive so check that you don’t have this also. if you don’t then it could be that zip file.
I would suggest uninstalling pa and then rebooting and downloading a fresh new version of pa and see what happens then.
I think it has to be either a virus or another software that is conflicting with pa.
There is an known issue with Startup Guard that crashes systes after PowerArchiver is run. Other than that, it could be hard driver or ram issue as well.
Generally speaking there is no known issue with PA causing system to crash and thats after few million downloads of 9.xx release.
As david noted, try reinstalling PowerArchiver.
If it still happens, scan your hd for errors and if there is nothing found, let us know and we will show you how to check what might be running unde pa.exe that is not from us.
thank you and have a nice holidays…
