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.
Run .REG file when xtracting SFX archive
is there a specific command line to input @ “Run command line after extracting” under “SFX Options” that will automatically import a *.reg file when the SFX is extracted.
if we just put the *.reg file name in the “Run command line after extracting”, we get the error prompts;
“This file does not have a program associated for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel”
“No application is associated with the specified file for this operation.”
Our Windows XP system certainly knows how to handle .REG files. SFX archives created with WinRAR handle .REG files with no issue.
You need to call regedit.exe /? and see what exactly you have to call to run that .reg with options needed. It is regedit that runs the show.
basically, it is regedit /s file.reg… and it will silently run that reg file and merge it with registry.
it doesn’t need to be silent…
the reg.reg file is extracted to the DIR with the rest of the files
regedit reg.reg was entered in the “Run command line after extracting” box when creating the archive
then we get;
“Windows cannot find ‘regedit reg.reg’. Make sure you typed the name correctly and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search.”
“The system cannot find the file specified.”
have tried, in the “Run command line after extracting” box:
can you tell me what SFX are you using? zip, cab, 7z?
please try using our 7zip SFX. It has better compression and more advanced features. Let me know if that works better.
