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.
No way to enable PAVD functionality?
Running 11.60.20, paid and registered for many years now. I can’t find any tabs or entries in the Configuration dialog for the virtual drive / PAVD. I also didn’t see any choices in the installer to select PAVD for installation. How do I activate this new feature?
PAVD doesn’t have to be configured as such.
It can be selected as a shell extension (under extract menu list) where it is available for iso files (etc); or it is available from the Modern Toolbar under (tools) Burner.
Edit: Under Configuration / Miscellaneous / General
there is a selection for the number of Virtual Drives.
Doesn’t appear, don’t have the setting, don’t have the menu extension:
<– this is an .iso file.
and you have the latest drivers installed?
strange how the tab doesn’t appear…admin will be around sometime today to give useful feedback I’m sure.
I’m sure these options are only in the pro version.
Do you have the Pro version wohali?
yes, the PRO version will give you VD/Burner capabilities.
You will not see and burner/VD options in the Standard version.
Good call - surprised this isn’t called out more clearly in the PA help. The helpfile documents the functionality as present; it didn’t make it clear that it’s Pro only.
I’ll see about upgrading now. Thanks!
OK, purchased - and now I see the functionality. Thanks again! :)
thank you :-)
