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)
Toolbox Download and Install
I can’t figure this out. I have the key for PA toolbox but the download link just takes me to the PA 2011 download. I downloaded and installed that version with the Toolbox key but still no toolbox features. What am I missing? I just want to install the toolbox without bitdefender so I can mount ISO’s.
Could it be that you’re downloading the International version instead of English (or vice versa)?
Both are here:
I made sure I am getting the english version (it’s the only version my key works with). PowerArchiver 2011 is installed okay (no nag screens). I just can’t figure out where the tools are.
Depending on your original Purchase selection you are provided with either “international” or “English” the keys are different.
Reference toolbox, you should notice that when installing powerarchiver without enterng the serial specific tools will not work.
Only when you enter your serial will the following features become available in full to you;

Does it say PowerArchiver Toolbox in the title bar?
Are you using the classic or modern skin?
If classic then see screenshot.
My screen looks just like yours with Toolbox in the titlebar and the same 4 choices on the far dropdown.
Never mind. Put the last 2 replies together and figured out you have to click on “Burner” and then the toolbox options are there. Thanks you Sir Richard and Luxor.
I knew we would get there in the end. :) hope you enjoy the features.

Yes I should have mentioned that really. Glad you got there in the end. :)
