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.
Email functions not working
If I right click any given file(s) and select the “Compress & E-Mail ‘name.zip’” option, it doesn’t work. The archive doesn’t even get created, and no email client window opens. (The “Compress To ‘name.zip’” function does work.)
If I right click an existing archive and select “E-Mail it…”, nothing happens (so to speak). I can see POWERARC.EXE being launched with this command line, but no email client window opens:
"C:\Program Files\PowerArchiver\POWERARC.EXE" -emailit "C:\path\name.zip" ```This copy of POWERARC.EXE doesn't show a window, and it exits immediately. I'm running the bleedingest-edge version of PA that all the coolest people are running, on WinXP Pro SP3\. Thunderbird is my email client, and it's properly registered as such.
if you select right click, send to> email, it works i would suppose?
I just tested and it works with Outlook (we just use 10 year old MAPI functions), i need to download and install tbird to see if i can reproduce it. thanks.
works on Win7 and latest tbird… need to try on XP tomorrow.
In fact, the “Send To” > “Mail Recipient” function was not working. But this turns out to be a Thunderturd problem, not a PowerArchiver problem. They screwed this up in the latest Thunderturd update. Fortunately other users have dealt with this already.
The solution is to go to this registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\Mozilla Thunderbird ```And set **DLLPath** (REG_SZ) so that it points to the full path to **mozMapi32.dll**, _sans_ quotes. (I actually found it will _not_ work if you surround it in quotes.) For me, the path to mozMapi32.dll is:
C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\mozMapi32.dll
My PowerArchiver email functions work fine now. Sorry to take your time with this nonsense.
its all good, thanks for clearing it up, closing this one!
