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)
Unmounting ISO from navigation pane is impossible
After the unmounting dialog I get this error message
The ISO is not in use or locked by any other application.
The only way to unmount it is to track back it’s folder and press unmount… on the file itself and it’s VERY uncomfortable.
is this only on particular ISO or?
Of course not, on all image files.
“Mount on Mount” unmounts the previous image file but as expected mounts the new one with same problem.
BTW I’m trialing v13.01.04 Pro
You are referring to getting a “device busy” dialog when specifically right clicking on the virtual drive letter in Windows Explorer and selecting the “unmount” option?
Please try clicking on another file and using the “unmount” option, like a file on the desktop for exacmple. You will still get the unmount option, which should work fine.
Let us know.

Yes you are correct right-clicking on any file or folder will open up an unmount shellex -> unmount diaglog
1)It’s very much not straight forward
2)Why using a dialog when only 1 image file is mounted ?
3)How/can I mount multiple image files ?
4)How can I edit/create an image file ?
All 4 are available in a “dedicated” image file software like MagicISO
Another easy way to unmount VD’s is to right click on the PA Starter located in your system tray, that will also give you the unmount option. Easy to right click there and unmount, without having to be in a folder or right clicking a file.
You can mount multiple image files by simply mounting one after another.
Also, you can create ISO files using PowerArchiver as well. Simply use the ISO builder by clicking the “New Disc Image” button in the burner menu.
Hope that helps :)
If you go to Options>Configuration>Miscellaneous, you will see an option where you can enter the number of Virtual Drives you would like. Located on the top right side of the Miscellaneous Tab.
Well it cannot edit ISO images (remove/add files & folders to an existing image file), determine/make them bootable,non-bootable and create multi-boot image file and probably some more features like …
If we are talking about a “swissknife software” sharpen this edge could be nice :rolleyes:
there was a new wish in wishlist section about editing ISOs… keep in mind that PA is only archiver right now that can make iso files…
