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 File Browser: Operations don't trigger UAC
This happens in Archive and Explorer Mode:
- Navigate to a folder, which is UAC protected (for example C:\Program Files)
- Right click -> New -> Folder (or any other item)
=> Nothing happens
Expected behaviour: UAC prompt is triggered and a new folder (or file) will be created
Confirmed and logged in
Just to report back: Still not working in 19.00.58
I am getting UAC now when creating a folder in C:\Program Files. You’re still not getting UAC?
Seems to work for me with .59 on Windows 7 (64 bit). (Create “New Folder”, Rename folder and delete folder in “Program Files (x86)” each gave a UAC prompt and worked when I said Yes)
@Brian-Gregory nice, glad it worked. thanks for your help!
Seems still not working with .59 on Windows 10 1909 32bit.
I have no test machine on x64 - but glad to hear, it’s fixed there…
I have still the problem with 20.00.53 (x64):
Being in explorer view, I try to create a new folder in “C:\Program Files” (right click -> New -> Folder: Nothing happens)
It’s working in folders, where I have write access with my restricted account.
Seems to have returned in the latest 2021 version, logged in for fixing.
While this seem to have been fixed in the x64 version 22.214.171.124, it seems to happen now with the x86 version
