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.
Unsolved 18.00.48 keeps opening text file in notepad!!
I have had PA 18 set up to view files in Notepad++ for some time and it has worked fairly recently but the current 18.00.48 version always uses Windows Notepad which does not view Linux text files properly.
If I try to set it back to using Notepad++ the setting is instantly set back to Windows Notepad.
I just used Modern> Right click on file in file list, and Open, Open With…, and View all worked fine when I tried a text file in .zip archive and different options. Granted, N++ is my default associated .txt editor in Windows, but Open with… also worked and so did View when selecting other options.
Open archive. Right click on some kind of text file (It was .cpp in my case) choose “View…” select “Viewer:” notice that it’s mysteriously set to use Windows Notepad, change it back to Notepad++ as I usually have it. Click “View” button, file opens in Windows Notepad. Angrily exit from notepad and notice that “Viewer:” has been set back to Windows Notepad.
Did you change the viewer in PA’s Settings area? Mine was still set to Notepad++ and I’m now using AkelPad
@brian-gregory you can set it here and it seems like it sticks:
Also, what about using Open With menu instead of View? It is based on Extension, so you can set different options based on extension of the file there.
I’ve also tested the Open filename.cpp option as well(the one at the very top of the right click menu) and that works, opens with the associated application.
That could be a workaround until we update the view option.
@ckit Thanks, I’d forgotten about that setting. Changing that one to Notepad++ does allow me to use Notepad++ as the viewer.
But why the two possible ways of choosing the viewer?
Maybe the one in Settings should be the default but the one in the View dialog is completely non functional at present!
