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 Some settings not restored in PA portable
On latest PA 17.00.69 x64 portable, some settings are not properly restored on launch. For instance View->Windows->Preview pane when settings are exported, are properly saved:
But when I launch PA again, preview pane is still there, so it seems they are not properly loaded. I can confirm that works on PA 17.00.69 not portable.
@nikkho check: C:\portableinstallationfolder\saved_configuraton\file1.reg file for what is saved in Portable registry. Keep in mind it is completely different registry key from main PA, so it has nothing to do with each other, they are independent.
Thank you. Sorry for the confusion. Was not aware of this new reg file for the portable edition.
You can discard this then.
@nikkho ah, ok. Yeah, keep in mind portable is there to be used on anyone’s computer without changing their PA installation. So they are kept completely separate.
Portable can be use from usb and it will save settings to usb, and you should have same settings no matter where you use it.
