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.
A thought from the peanut gallery
I really like many of PA’s features; I like supporting a small company like Conexware rather than Corel.
However, your company releases versions for Beta testing far too prematurely.
I am amazed at the number of problems I have seen discussed on these forums; I am amazed at the number of problems I have experienced (the most annoying one was fixed, then reappeared several versions later, and despite my best efforts, has still not been corrected in RC3).
I have done a fair bit of beta testing for other companies (including WinZip).
I have never seen anything like this.
You are losing this customer . . . at least for a while. I need something more reliable. I suspect I am not alone. I would urge you to not release version, even for beta testing, until you are sure that any remaining problems are minor.
Consider it. It will help your product, and it merits serious attention.
as discussed in the email, we are sad to see you go.
However, without proper report we can not fix the issue that you have had with extract mru not wanting to overwrite the file in some folders. I understand that you believe similar issue was fixed before, but unfortunatly that does not help us with locating the issue and I have personally tried it on 5 different computers.
You have been very helpful in the past and for that we thank you. So if you ever get to change your mind, we will be here.
thanks for all of your help…
