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.
Solved PA 16.10.24 asking for pgp password 2x during decryption
The latest build of PowerArchiver (16.10.24) requires us to enter a PGP decryption password twice. Previous builds did not require this.
It might make sense to require double-entry of a password when you’re setting it, but when you’re decrypting, it’s just unnecessary. My users are grumbling.
thanks @JoeS, logging it in
Unfortunately, 17.00.91 is still requiring double-entry of the PGP decryption password. I’m reminded of joining wireless networks back in the Windows XP days.
My user base is perseverating on this issue. It’s their primary association with PowerArchiver.
@joes we will try addressing this in the next minor update, sorry for the delay!
@joes Please check latest update:
It should fix this issue. Sorry for the delay!
