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.
I have recently updated with the old school update tool to the latest version. My current version is 11.70.07 pro version, registered.
OS: Vista 64 bit
I have admin rights.
With this version, when I got to Help-> Check for new version
PA opens up the folder where PA was installed. I don’t get an update screen or see any tool in there I can use to update PA.
Am I doing something wrong?
did you maybe uninstall Patchbeam, our update system?
Sounds familiar to me when I was upgrading to an alpha release! but I reinstalled everything from scrach which included patchbeam.
Maybe PatchBeam could be Hidden from the “Program and Features” window. Thus reducing mistaken removals.?
Patchbeam and PA 2010 did show up in control panel and I did a full uninstall and reinstall and now they work.
I think what had happened is that I updated from the pro (non-beta) to the beta and maybe in the process something went missing.
Works good now :)
Glad its all working now, thats why we advise a clean install for Betas and Alpha releases.
Final Release isnt that far away me thinks ;) hope you enjoy the new features.
I am sure I will :D
i trust update to 11.70.09 went smoothly?
Been away for a while. I finally figured out what went wrong.
When I run PA as an admin, patchbeam works fine. When I run it regularly and hit check for update, the PA installation folder opens up.
I am using the latest version now.
so in a23, it still happens?
ah, you dont have a23 :)
I have version 11.71.04.
How/where do I get a23?
