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.
Bug - OpenPGP Key Manager
- Pressing ENTER when typing the private key passphrase, to revoke or sign a certificate, will report an error and break the certificate.
- Session cache problem when generating certificates without closing the OpenPGP Key Manager.
After generating a certificate, OpenPGP Key Manager will cache your passphrase and the certificate information - session cache.
If you try to generate another certificate, all the fields will have the previous certificate information and the wizard will jump the “enter passphrase” field and will use the previous passphrase.
Conclusion: If you need to generate more than one certificate you’ll need to close and open the OpenPGP Key Manager to clean the session cache.
Keyboard ENTER problem:
Pressing ENTER, when entering the passphrase for the private PGP key, to revoke or sign a certificate, will not make the Wizard step forward. You’ll have to press the window OK button and after that you’ll get an Access Violation Error.
Despite the error the revocation or signature will succeed and the certificate integrity will be ok.
But, if you press ENTER two times and then you click OK, you’ll get two Access Violation Errors,
the certificate status bar will not respond and the following Access Violation Error will popup
and if you close and open the OpenPGP Manager, the certificate will be broken.
If you press ENTER tree times you’ll get the following errors and a broken certificate:
thank you, we will take a look for upcoming release!
We were able to reproduce the issue and are logging it in for fixing.
thanks very much for the details, we appreciate it!
