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.
Disc to Image
Why does PowerArchiver 2012 Toolbox freeze if I try to use Disc to Image after the CD has been inserted in the BD-RW optical drive?
This is a technical issue that would be best raised via the support site.
If you click on the below link and fill in the form to submit, the PA Tech guys will be able to contact you direct. Obviosly, we can use this forum for further talks, ideas, requests etc later on.
PS: Thank you for contacting PA Forums,
Tried to reproduce this on a couple of computers, but couldn’t get it to freeze on any of them.
Did it exactly as you wrote to us at support.
“From the burner tab, insert the CD-ROM in the optical drive, wait for drive
to be ready, then click Copy Disc to Disc or Copy Disc to ISO from the
burner tab. It freezes in either cases.”
This problem only occurs when using standard CD of up to 700mb but not with DVD. The PABURNER120.DLL version is 220.127.116.112 modified on 12/13/2011 5:09 PM and the STARBURN.DLL version is 18.104.22.1682 modified on 10/17/2009 5:15 PM. Both files are in the PowerArchiver installation folder. The whole system freezes with the HDD LED light staying on constantly and ctrl-alt-del doesn’t work and there is a spinning mouse cursor. I have only one optical drive called Sony Optiarc BD-5300S-03.
tried here with CD Disc, and no freeze.
If anyone else experiences it, please let us know
do you have any cd or dvd copying software.
If you have nero uninstall it.
Some softwares change the upper and lower filters on your dvd or cd writer.
does a cd or dvd copy ok with other software on your pc? if so its not the drive. but a conflict between pa and something installed on your pc.
Can someone else with the same Sony Optiarc BD-5300S drive try to reproduce this issue as it could be drive specific due to possible bug in firmware?
