Win 11 64 bit
I have some archives which have been encrypted, using the encrypt option either in pbs or when interactively creating a zip. When I open these, and look at files, I am asked for passwords, which I know, and then can view items or decrypt the files in the archive (tools>decrypt files).
However, when I use the Actions>Remove Archive Encryption (whether using the same zip or asking to write another), the routine shows progress bar to the end, but then just hangs i.e. “OK” never activates. All process information shows this stalled/hanging.
What can I do to sort this out?
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)
Changing file focus does not work properly
When you try to change the focused item by the use of the keyboard. (Pressing A key will focus the first file that start with A) it does not work most of the times. I could link a preview if needed.
maybe because if you press them “fast” enough it adds them together (so pressing a and then b, will look for “ab” not b.).
Or not :-). Let us know.
The matter is that when I press a key, it does not always focus a file/folder. Sometimes it does not work for only a particular letter, this usually happens when I press its key twice, and others it does not work until I use the arrow keys to select another file/folder, make a click on a file/folder or in any part of the PowerArchiver windows.
If needed I could create a demo and upload somewhere.
so it is not an issue of it adding them together if you write them fast after each other?
In some cases it is because the key is pressed “too quick”. (It usually only works when the time interval between pressed keys is more than 1365 milliseconds but sometimes it works with less time too.)
The other behaviours do not always happen. Could it be due a software conflict?
if you could send an video or something that explains it better, it would be very good. I tried it few times and seems to work fine, but i might not be trying exactly the same thing as you.
The pressed keys are not displayed properly. I will try to upload a better demo in some days. (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=XXO4UZUW )
In the demo you can see:
1. At the beginning the “4.txt” icon is not the one it should have.
2. When the Desktop (Escritorio) is selected (Not using “C:\Documents and Settings\Administrador\Escritorio” link of the Explorer Display Stile but “Escritorio”) and a file is deleted, PowerArchive does not refresh itself
3. When key 1 is pressed two times, 11.txt file is not selected. And the same happens with the other ones.
3. Is that only for numbers, it works fine for letters?
1. weird, does that happen a often?
2. PowerArchiver does not refresh after deletion or creation, you have to press F5. Reason for it is that some users experienced AV’s with automatic refresh which we could not reproduce so that was the easiest soution (having to press F5 rather than automatically getting an AV).
1. I do not really know. I just realized this when I was creating the files for the demo.
2. In my computer PowerArchiver refreshs itself after deletion or creation of files/folders. It only does not do it on Desktop.
3. It is for numbers and letters. (aa.txt, 11.txt)
Some focus problems are generated due to the Internet view of the preview window. For example previewing pdfs.
3. i got it, it is when we have same characters typed in…
