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.
Shellextension for non-admin-users (vista)
if i try to use the shellextension (for language “germany”) for a restrictetd user (Non-Admin-user on Vista), if i do so, always get for the extension the “polnish-language” (i think it is polnish). If i close the customize-dialogue from PA (Version 11.64.01) the uac come up, i allow the change (using admin account) but nothing changed, i can only set shellextension on or of but always with the wrong language. PA itself uses the right (german) language…. strange thing… for now i will set shellextensions of…
Any solution there?
you can change language in Options> Language, you do not need to go to the configuration screen.
Was this your first PA installation or did you install it over some other release? Since we had this issue of wrong first time selection in 11.63.
If you did upgrade over 11.63, please restart your computer as your shell extensions need to be updated. If it still does not work, then reinstall 11.64 and restart.
thanks for the answer!
I use PA for a long time, so i copied the new version over the old one…
This was done with the admin account. For the admin -account it works fine, for surfing i’ve a “guest”-account without admin-rights. For this account i have the descripted problems.
Should i try to reinstall PA for the restricted user?
