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.
Shell extension compress profile TAR
Trying to change the Compression Profile for the ShellExt:TAR-Default and it does not seem to take effect.
Have added the shell extension for Compress to TAR. After adding it, it does show up although it shows up as ‘Compress To "<blah>.tar.gz’" and it works. The issue is that I want a ‘Compress To “<blah>.tar”’ as regularly compress to just tar but not to gz (and the activity I use the file for does not do un-tar.gz).
BTW, I even did a full Win7 system restart after making the Compression Profile ShellExt:TAR-Default changes (and confirmed those changes still existed in the PA Configuration).
How can I change the compression default for ShellExt, esp TAR?
Actually suspect this is a subtle bug. Also I am using a workaround of having the shell extension for Compress with Options also active… so this is not a show stopper, but I like PA’s shell extension and having the one click for the compress to just .tar vs .tar.gz would be nice.</blah></blah>
Thanks for the info grogier, it’s indeed a bug. Should give you a .tar when selecting store method in compression profiles.
logged in to fix asap!
Thanks for confirming. Look forward to a future upgrade with the bug fix.
please patchbeam the latest update to see if this has been fixed… thank you!
Updated to 12.10.05(01/2012). Quick check of it and it looks like it works now. Thanks for fixing… ~G
