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.
Comment panel hidden by preview panel
I’m not trying to invent bugs. I just happened to notice this.
I’m using the Classic interface, and under Actions > “Archive Comment…”, I have “Show comments when opening archives” selected. Also, under Miscellaneous in the options panel, I have “Automatically dock archive comments” selected.
The screen shots make this the most clear. When I arrange the comment and preview panels as seen in the first image, and then close and reopen PA (using an archive that has a comment), the result is the second image. The comment panel is there, but it’s “behind” the preview panel (i.e. if I close or move the preview panel, the comment panel is there).
When the comment and preview panels are reversed as per the first image (i.e. comment panel on the left rather than the right), PA can handle it just fine. The comment and preview panels stay put.
I found this bug (feature?) by accident, after trying to arrange the PA window the way I wanted it (comment panel on right). I started this thread as a “Comments not automatically shown” bug, but then realized the comment panel actually is there, it’s just hidden.
every bug is an bug :).
as to the panels, they are killing us, killing us :)
Overall, I love the panels.
I forgot to mention that I know the comment panel is “hidden” because if you close the preview panel (or drag it like mad), you can then see the comment panel.
we love them too, but there are many small issues with size/position, and frankly last two weeks we are banging our heads against it :)
if you like to know behind the scenes stuff, we are one of the few programs that tries to properly resize their panels/windows when you resize overall window. And these unicode components that are using are not really built for that (hence not many other programs have that). Its something that most people dont notice, but appreciate nevetheless :).
