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.
English version auto-updating to International version
Just wondering if anyone else has this problem, and more importantly a fix. So I register the English version, and all is fine.
Then Patchbeam will run, and auto install the International version (no way to tell which version is being installed until AFTER the installation). Of course I go to enter my rego info, and bam. No go.
So I have to un-install, restart, re-install. And its a major pain in the ass. It has happened a couple of time now… hence this post. I need a fix.
Any ideas would be most welcome. Thanks!
Hi - new PA 2012 has same installer for both versions, so it will be easier for users to download what they actually want to use, without too much thinking.
You can use both codes - if you use English, it will simply enable English language only.
Your problem is most likely that you need latest codes for version PA 2012, which you can get from your account:
Also - there is no auto install. You have to press Update and then click through complete installer for it to actually install. We did this on purpose for major versions as supposed to quick Patchbeam update which would usually be 2-3 seconds.
Your hunch was right, I need to update my keys.
And you’re also correct regarding the update procedure. :)
My bad for not describing that correctly.
Thanks for your help! :D
thanks, i am glad you were able to find quickly what you need… have a nice weekend and enjoy PA 2012!
