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 extracting issue
I recently installed Windows 10 and I needed to install a working sound card driver… but doing the self extracting exe was not working… i needed to extract the files in the self extracting exe so i could follow the instruction for tis old sound driver
but Powerarchiver wouldn’t extract all the folders in the self extracting exe
it didn’t error or anything it just didn’t extract everything
the file is SBA5_PCDRV_L11_3_01_0056B.exe and i got it from creative
but Winrar had no issue with it
Downloaded the archive and tested it using the latest PowerArchiver 2019. The extracted folders and files seemed to correspond with the files inside the exe archive when opened in PowerArchiver.
Which folders did you find missing? Please let us know, we’ll take a closer look.
Sorry been busy with Christmas things I did an extract to subfolder with powerarchiver and this is what i get
however I do an extract to sub with winrar and it extracts correctly which you can see here
hope that explains it and this is with version 19.00.59
Thanks very much for the update. Was able to reproduce it now and am logging it in for fixing. PowerArchiver indeed does not show the files properly.
Thanks again and have a great Christmas!
