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.
Unknown Encryption Method
I am trying to access a .pae file for my job, but when I try to open it I get the error message ‘Unknown Encryption Method’. This is even before the prompt for the password. I’m pretty sure that the file was encrypted in PowerArchiver (would anything else give it a pae extension?).
Would you please let me know how I can access this file.
Do you have PowerArchiver installed on your work computer? PAE files are not self decrypting and require PA installed to unpack them.
Yes I do have PA installed and I have been able to decrypt other pae files
can you send it to powerarchiver to check
Open the .pae file in a text editor and you should see something like:
“Rijndael Encrypted File (PowerArchiver 2004: www.powerarchiver.com)
as the header. If not, then it’s not a PA encrypted archive. If you do see it there, then it’s likely that the file has been corrupted somehow.
Your PAE file has been corrupted most likely. Usually this happens during download or email, but it could happen due to the bad media as well.
Unfortunatly since it is an encrypted file, it is impossible to repair the archive.
