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.
Solved Compress with Options missing from context menu.
In explorer, I often select a bunch of files and right click and choose “Compress with Options”, but this seems to have disappeared. I have the ‘Display “Compress with Options” item’ checkbox selected in Configuration>Shell Extensions.
This fails in version 170090 and still 170104 that I have installed.
This issue appears to be fixed.
@south37 thanks for the report… Do you by any chance have only 2 items enabled under shell extensions, or less? We currently have one bug open with those conditions.
I have three enabled (Compress to ZIP…, Compress to RAR… and Compress to PA…) as well as the Main PA 2017 option with it’s sub-menus.
@south37 can you save your settings under options, and send them over to support at conexware dot com so we can check it out, thanks.
I have sent the settings file.
thanks for sending over the reg file, we have confirmed the issue and it has been added to our already existing report.
The dev team will check it out for fixing
thanks very much for your help!
@mili I have the same problem on Windows 10 64-bit
@south37 if you dont have PA 2018 license already, let us know via support at conexware dot com and we will send one free or add more select plan to your account, for your bug hunting. Thanks!
I have a licence already. I will check this build out.
This issue appears to be fixed.
