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.
Issue with opening tar.gz file
I’m using this internal build that was graciously provided to resolve other issues. I’ve found a separate problem with this version. I don’t know if it happens with the current release version, but I assume it does.
I downloaded this file (you have to click the “nipfilter.dat.gz” link at the top, then you have to click “Download” on the page that opens). I opened it in PA and tried to extract it to a folder that already had a copy of ipfilter.dat. The prompt I got was strange. See attached.
It says the new file is 0 bytes, yet you can see it isn’t. The date/time is wrong too. When I open this archive in WinRAR, the date/time shows as 7/14/2009 4:19 AM. PA shows the same date in the archive and in the dialog, but the time is off by one minute. Irrelevant. Both the date and time are wrong.
The other strange thing is that the file is named ipfilter.dat in the archive, but when extracted, the file is named nipfilter.dat.
nice one, thank you!
Note to others: This problem has been fixed in a new internal build that was supplied to me. My thanks to ConeXware.
if you guys redownload PA 2010 from download pages, you will get latest 11.50.66 version which fixes this issue. Thanks!
