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.
Open folder after extracting–key word being "EXTRACTING"!
I have about ten seconds to write this problem report, so sorry if it has been reported already…
Running PA 9.11.01 here on WinXP Pro SP-2. I like to keep the “Open folder after extracting” option selected. This setting is remembered from the last use of the “Extract” dialog.
In any event, if I drag-and-drop an archive, select “Extract here”, then get an overwrite prompt and select “No”, the target folder is still opened. This happens even if there was only one file in the archive, and (as a result of the “No” reply on the overwrite prompt) no files are extracted.
The same thing happens under some other (but similar) circumstances, where no actual extraction took place. I can detail them at some later date, if needed.
Basically, “Open folder after extracting” should work exactly that way–after extracting. And not after simply beginning an extract operation, regardless of what happens after that point.
Edit: I just noticed that WinRAR doesn’t open the target folder at all, when using the shell extension. This may seem to make sense. If you are doing a drag-and-drop, you already have an Explorer window open. Besides, using the shellex, you don’t have an opportunity to change the setting! (i.e. open target/don’t open target)
Basically, folder opens even if extraction is cancelled before anything is extracted.
I am not sure if it is possible to detect it properly, we will check it out.
For me personally, way I use shell extensions, I find it very nice to have folder open after extraction since I usually extract from large archives, minimize pa and close explorer window (i hate those windows).
I know it’s possible, question is… How hard is it. Since the user responds “No” to overwrite prompts, PA knows what that user response is. If all PA gets back is nothing but “No”, then … nothing got extracted. :)
Thanks for reading.
