Win 11 64 bit
I have some archives which have been encrypted, using the encrypt option either in pbs or when interactively creating a zip. When I open these, and look at files, I am asked for passwords, which I know, and then can view items or decrypt the files in the archive (tools>decrypt files).
However, when I use the Actions>Remove Archive Encryption (whether using the same zip or asking to write another), the routine shows progress bar to the end, but then just hangs i.e. “OK” never activates. All process information shows this stalled/hanging.
What can I do to sort this out?
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)
Missing Burner Tab in PA Pro 2011
I just upgraded to PA Pro 2011 v12.01.02 and went to create an ISO from disc and cannot find that function any longer. I looked in help and it referred me to the Burner Menu in the Main Power Menu but there is nothing regarding a Burner Menu to be found much less Copy Disc to Image. Can someone advise?
Update. I uninstalled everything that I could find related to Power Archiver. I then reinstalled PA Pro 2011 and opened it in trial mode. The Burner Menu was there. I then entered the PA Pro 2011 code that I was sent by email and after doing that the Burner Menu was gone. Seems there is an issue with the code and the registration of my upgrade from PA Pro 2010 to PA Pro 2011.
Did you get your new code? as you need a new code for PA 2011 That may be the problem.
Sign into Conexware account via the Support Tab on the main page and select Order Recovery or just use this link http://www.conexware.com/shop/ and once there select resend code from your purchased licenses.
Doh! just reread your message and you have your code for PA 2011 already. :o
Strange problem can’t recall seeing this issue pop up before. Best wait for support to see what they can recommend.
