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)

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.
I’m trying to work out how to encrypt a folder and all its contents as a self-extracting file. It seems that you can only encrypt individual files.
I don’t think there is a way round that to be honest. I’m willing to be corrected though. :)
You could use the SFX Wizard and create a password protected SFX from that. Though that’s not exactly what you are asking for.
It looks like I will have to resort to creating an SFX file and then encrypt that. Does seem clunky!
Thanks for your help.
It’s not really that clunky honestly.
Just click on the SFX wizard, select a destination and select your folder. Click next, select protect with password, type in your password, click next. Job done. :)
Wouldn’t that just password protect it without encryption?
Yes unfortunately so that’s why I put in my first post
Though that’s not exactly what you are asking for.
The only other option is to create the SFX then encrypt that and yes I agree that would be a clunkier solution.
Oh and if this is something that you would like to see in a future version you could make a post in the wishlist forum
Ok, thank you.
No problem hafren and welcome to the forums by the way. :)
SFX Wizard with 7zip compression will do what you want :).
That’s great news.
