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.
Deploying updates to non-admin users without patchbeam
I deploy PA2011 via MSI and Group Policy. I’ve turned off updates using Group Policy. How can I push updates to users? Can I apply MSP files to the MSI and redeploy?
since there are so many minor updates, easiest thing would be to push “full” msi… so:
msiexec /i Powarc1200.msi AI_DESKTOP_SH=“” ENABLEQUEUE=“” SHOWCONF=“” CHECKBOX_1_PROP=“” /qn
(this will do proper Windows Installer update and preserve all of your registry entries)
Thanks, SPWolf. I confirmed that although the file size is the same as the last MSI I downloaded, the file number inside the MSI was incremented to 12.00.60.
Is there an update mailing list I can subscribe to?
Easiest way for advanced user to get full MSI is to simply download latest EXE from our website, right click on it and chose Extract… it will extract full MSI file (exe is only wrapper that makes it smaller and more common for average user).
We also update our advanced install PDF with link to MSI and updated instructions (if any), and that works by resending codes via account (always get the latest PDF version).
We have can send newsletter via our store (to larger users), but problem is that (as you probably know), most of the contacts are purchasers, who are technically inept :-), so we were worried that it could back fire.
