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.
I have some problems, questions, and observations. These don’t neatly go into any of the categories, so I put them here.
Some of the links on the Wiki help page don’t work. Under “make exe” options, there is the following sentence: “Click here for more info on advanced extract path options.” the “here” hyperlink doesn’t work. [What IS the syntax for documents folders?]
I wonder how much of the Wiki help page is out of date. E.g., if states that you cannot make SFX files from AES encrypted files. Still true? If so, how DO you make exe’s from encrypted files? In general, if you are going to use the Wiki as a help file, it should be updated as changes as made to the software.
I would like to see the ability to make SFX’s from RARs.
Once I discovered that I couldn’t make SFX’s from RARs, I tried to convert them back to a format where I COULD make SFX’s. To no avail. So I found myself wondering if your convert utilities handles RAR5 format. Does it? If not . . . I could be in serious trouble. Why? 'Cause I made many of the other files RAR files since I found it was not only quicker, but also often more compressed than either 7zip and zipx.
I have been messing with this for nearly an hour. Does SFX only support ZIP formatted (and unencrypted) files.
I will check it out on monday… shouldnt be out of date. For encryption, 7zip SFX works the best. There are several different SFX formats supported: zip, 7zip, cab.
