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.
Installtion for 11.71
reveived an error while trying to remove old 11.64 version. The install SW does it automatically. The error os “The Feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is not available” - itopen a browse field to my user account, Local aoolication\Temp\7zS54.tmp
MS unistall does not work. It get stock on the same error.
Any idea how to install the upgrade or remove the old one completely?
The problem is due to previous installation not being uninstalled properly.
You can use this installer cleanup utility provided by microsoft to clean out any previous installations and install PA properly; http://majorgeeks.com/Windows_Installer_CleanUp_Utility_d4459.html
Sorry, that utility from Microsoft msiccu2.exe did not help. The new installer remmembers the old dir where ver 11.64 was installed and fails with the same error at the same tmp file.
did you find the PA 2010 entry via that utility and delete it? If so, there is no way windows would know about installation anymore.
Never asked me for PA2010, nor did it showed me anything. The utility just run, said that it cleans some old files and finished.
is the utility name msicuu2.exe?
after that i tryed to run the uninstall from MS add/remove andit crashed again
this is the file it is asking for:
Once you run it, it installs to:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Installer Clean Up
And then you can go to that folder and run msicuu.exe. It will display list of installation registered with Windows Installer. Search for PowerArchiver and remove it…
that should work!
YES it did, Thank you.
BTW, the installer clean up crahed at the end with some error, but it did what it suppose to do, and PA was installed and running
