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.
File Rename in ZIP archive is not working
1. Use the latest version of PowerArchiver Toolbox.
- Open some ZIP file containing two or more files.
- Select to rename one of the files contained in the ZIP file.
- Provide a new name and press OK in the rename file dialog.
- Notice how nothing seems to happen.
thanks, checking it out!
Tested here and rename worked.
Tested by right clicking a file inside archive and then Rename
or selecting a file and then Rename from the Action menu.
Please send us a sample archive that reproduced it on your machine along with your settings(in a Cab file) to support at conexware dot com and we will attempt to reproduce it that way.
I forgot to mention something very important, Namely, the name of file I tried to rename was very, very long, over the NTFS file name (path) limit of 250 chars.
Maybe that is the problem?
Knowing that the file name is exceedingly long, I tried to rename it.
Does this help?
Thanks for the info.
Here I have a 263 character filename to which I added characters to rename and it worked. Also removed characters to a shorter filename, also worked.
Maybe we can give it a try with your sample file and settings as described in my previous post. Hopefully we’ll be able to reproduce it then.
