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.
PA 2004 is great!
Just wanted to say this is a great release! 7-Zip support was a must and you guys delivered!
I hope to see more frequent updates but you guys do a great job as it is!
:cool: Thank you!
Along with a good job on 2004, the forums also look nice.
I love the new slick icons in PA 2004! Although I find that it takes a little longer to open PA2004 than PA 2003 version 8.8. I’m using a 3GHz CPU with 1GB ram and XP Pro.
Yeah PA 2004 is a huge step forward !!
Great Job ! :D
Now i’m waiting for the dutch translation.
The forum is a major change with the old version.
I only forgot my login name was case sensitive.

Just curious… I hear people complaining about lack of 7Zip support all the time in certain archivers, and raving about presence of 7Zip support in archivers that have it. But I’ve yet to even come across a 7Zip archive.
So who uses it? Is it just an archive format that people like for their own use? For backups?
I use it, for me 7Zip is the inofficial successor of ZIP. it has better compression ratios than RAR and ACE. And the best the 7ZIP format is OpenSource, so every programm can use this routine. Even Linux programs.
I read in someone’s post on FileForum that RAR compresses better than 7Zip on text files. I wasn’t sure I believed it at first, but I tried it myself on a couple large text files. Sure enough, RAR did compress better than 7Zip (with maximum compression specified for each).
In my tests 7ZIP always comrpess better than RAR. You have to activate “solid” compression in 7Zip to get the best compression. But in anyway the comrpession of both archivtypes is on a very high level and definately better than ZIP.
7zip is definetly better when compressing applications/installations/program files… It gives 10%-20% better file size than RAR, but what is the most interesting thing is that it is an open format so it has an chance to become new standard for compressed files since everyone can use it and every application can support it.
Then again, PA 2004 isnt only about 7zip, many other improvements as well… From the basics to more specific options…
Yes the new PA is very great! Congratulations!!
But I lack these: -iso support
-More Options in SFX Wizard
-German Language(I know in few days it comes out!!)
But it is the best archiver (look at many tests)
simply the best archiver period
It will be more better! But you can always find improvements
