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.
DOH! Just lost my context menu PA entries
The PA context menu entries are gone from windows explorer (xp).
I unregistered zipfldr.dll (regsvr32 /u zipfldr.dll) and not only did that get rid of zipfolders, it killed the PA context menu.
I tried re-registering zipfolders (regsvr32 zipfldr.dll) but that didn’t work, obviously it killed some registry data that was vital to it working. I goog’d and found a bunch of fixes, they all looked promising but all failed.
I uninstalled PA, re-installed, but no luck. I searched microsoft knowledge base, but couldn’t find anything there that worked.
I fired up regedit, looked for the PA registry context menu entries and they are there and they look ok, so why don’t they show up in windows explorer.
Any ideas on restoring the context menu or did I just completely screw myself?
You could have a look in Options > Shell Extensions and see if Use Shell Extensions is checked.
If that doesn’t help then you will have to wait for one of the PA geniuses to come along. :)
execute _pautil.exe in PA folder… (with admin permissions if in Win7/Vista)… lets see if that restores them.
I figured it out! And it’s a duzi.
My restoration of zipfolders actually worked, BUT…. what MUST happen before the changes are accepted by windoze XP registry is that they must be first verified by the class verifier app (verclsid.exe) … and I have that app kill filed by my HIPS firewall because the idiotic thing would run with every launch of every app… doing apparently nothing and killing my peace of mind with excess mouse clicks (I swear my right index finger is 2X as developed as my left index finger - LOL). So I got caught in windoze spaghetti logic and that contemptible heinous, and in a direct quote from billgates himself, “the beep stupid idea I’ve ever heard” … the windblows registry.
The registry is a stinking pile of beep. Thanks microfcuk for killing my precious time, you incompetent worthless convicted monopolist criminals.
oh yeah, one more thing - beep recapthca
