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.
Non associated files
if you open say a zip file for example and double click on a file that is not associated with anything pa sayes extarcting on the bottom line of the program.
shouldn’t it say something or actually do something?
PA lets windows handle the file when you doubleclick on it, so you should get the same message you get in Windows when you doubleclick on file that has no association?
What i put down was the steps to recreate the fault. What i have scince found is that powerachiver extracts the file to a tmp directory and winmdows trys to open it. However as pa window is open you do not see the windows behind it that say what program do you wnat to open it with.
What i would like is a way for pa to associate the file with a program or on double clicking the item within pa to tell you there is no associated program with this file type on your computer.
but Windows does tell you that :-).
This way, PA stays compatible with every version of Windows since it lets Windows handle associations. In fact, PA uses Windows Explorer not just Windows. Meaning that if you have set something in Windows Explorer, it will work properly when called from PA as well.
There is no reason for PA to tell you that there is no association when Windows tells you that and offers alternatives which, for instance, might be different in Windows 8.
is there a way to make pa go in the background once you have double clicked on an item, so i can see the windows associated window
