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 Removing virtual drives
Removing virtual drives by using the right-click menu item sometimes does not work. I have to load PA and go into the burner section and do it from there.
Not much more to add other than that really. Please let me know how to get some more useful info to you.
The above was in Windows 8.1 x64.
I had to work in Win 7 x64 on the same PC and found the virtual drives system flaky to the point of being unusable. This win 7 install is not the one I had problems with in the past. This one is a recent vanilla install. It was virtually impossible to create any virtual drives. I used both the context menus and the functionality within PA. On occasions where I did create one drive and tried to create another, I just got an installing driver window that did not succeed to install any drivers. I ended up burning DVDs.
If you want me to troubleshoot this, please let me know exactly what you want me to do. I can provide screenshots and screencasts. I backup daily so can do any risky stuff you like.
When you right click an ISO and select Unmount, what happens?
The VD dialog should appear with the mounted drive showing, select the drive and click start and it should be unmounted.
It seems fine in our tests, but I will check it on W8 also.
If I do that, the drive remains. After multiple tries, usually by abandoning the context menu and opening PA and doing it from there.
thanks, charging up the W8 test machine to check it out and will report back with test results
I can test on both Win 7 and Win 8.1 here and can provide videos of the issues. I am very surprised that a clean install of Win 7 has such problems.
apologies for the wait, I was finally able to test on W8x64 and it worked fine.
Mounting and unmounting via shell extensions did not show any irregularities.
Right click on the ISO>Unmount brought up the Remove VD dialog, selected the mounted ISO, clicked Start and ISO was removed instantly.
Maybe try reinstalling the VD drivers? Delete pavd2018.exe from the installation folder and run VD from the Burner tab in PowerArchiver. You’ll then have to download the VD drivers again and those will be the latest. Does that help?
Hi there. I was using the latest drivers anyway, but did what your suggested and redownloaded them. No change. Right-clicking Unmount did not work but working in PA’s burner section, the unmount did.
PS Worse issues in new install of Win 7 x64 as mentioned above.
