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.
Transparent handling of PAE file doesn't work anymore with 12.00.41
With the latest version of PO, 12.00.41, the transparent handling of PAE file doesn’t work anymore for saving a changed text file. If I edit a text file, PA ask me to update the archive when I save the file and I can see that the zip behind has been correctly changed. However, when I close the archive, PA doesn’t ask me anymore if I want to update the archive and left the PAE untouched, with the older version of the ZIP file.
However, if I add a new file to the archive then yes, at the end, when I close the archive, PA ask me if I want to update the archive and process it correctly.
The two options “Handle encrypted archive transparently” and “Ask to update if file has been changed” are checked.
Furthermore, on Windows XP, when I close a PAE file, PA tell me thatthis archive was opened from a temporary Internet folder and ask me if I want to save it. This happens even if I did not make any change to the PAE file. In case I save it after having made a change, this is still only the older version that get saved and not the newer version with the new zip file.
On Windows 7, this second problem doesn’t happen but the first problem still does.
Thanks for your attention and regards,
thanks a lot!
this has been fixed with RC4?
No change with the latest version 12.00.49. I’ve tried both the update with PatchBeam and I’ve also downloaded and installed the rc4 release directly from the web site.
Also, I’ve noticed something else: I’ve told you that if I add or remove a file instead of just changing a file that is already in the archive, it works. However, if I add a file and then, after that, I make a change to another file then the whole process of saving the archive is also cancelled. To be clear:
1- I change (edit) a file: it doesn’t work.
2- I add a new file: it works.
3- I add a new file and then make a change to another file: it doesn’t work again.
4- I change a file and then add another one: it works, as expected.
i checked it during development of RC4 and it seemed fine… We will now update it soon during minor update period on the road to the final.
thanks for the help.
it works here - can you send your settings Options> save settings to support at conexware dot com, it might be some specific setting
please patchbeam to .50 and try there, if it doesnt work, please send us your settings as noted above.
that way we will be able to reproduce it for sure.
I also get this. Updated to .50 this morning, but still the bug prevails.
Win 7 Pro 64-bit
Upgraded to 0.50 and the problem is still there. Here’s my configuration file for PA (on Windows 7 64 bit).
thanks, we got crohans which enabled reproduction… should be fixed within days!
.51 has just been published. It should fix this PAE issue, just patchbeam it!
Thanks, 0.51 fixed it for me!
