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.
In my Account it says Available upgrades PowerArchiver 2011 Pro - Personal - English (FREE upgrades for life!)
I beleve I bought PowerArchiver 2009 Pro with free lifetime upgrades … I’m trying to verify this somewhere… cause I think I’m covered forever … Or do I need to buy the PowerArchiver 2011 Pro - Personal - English (FREE upgrades for life!)
is there anyway to know?
I am also confused by the term Legacy
If you have purchased via personal means PowerArchiver Standard, Pro or Toolbox then you are entitled to a lifetime of free upgrades for that version.
However, should the version change or you wish to upgrade then a fee is applicable.
Pro Legacy was a gift from ConeXware to provide existing Pro users some key toolbox features. Thus most pro users didnt require to upgrade at that time.
at the bottom you should see Free Upgrades, and listed very clearly the name and download link.
email support and they will check what version you had.
At the bottom of the account page, you will see your order. If you purchased PA 2009 Pro, then you have access to free upgrade to PA 2011 Pro Legacy.
Pro Legacy has same features like Toolbox (with no BD), while PA 2011 Pro has less features, so they are not the same, and hence the term legacy.
