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.
Bug in PowerArchiver 2021 RC2
I need to report a bug in PowerArchiver 2021 RC2.
When you open an archive file in PowerArchiver and you drag a folder from Windows Explorer into the PowerArchiver window, it will correctly detect that you want to add the folder along with anything in that folder. This is the proper functionality. However, when you drag a folder in Windows Explorer onto an archive file it will detect that you want to add something but it doesn’t detect it as a folder thus it adds nothing.
I’ve recorded the steps in Windows 10’s Steps Recorder to reproduce this bug, you can download it on my web site at https://www.toms-world.org/PowerArchiver/steps.zip. You will have to open the compressed ZIP file and view the contained MHT file in Internet Explorer.
Also, when you open a registered version of PowerArchiver 2021 it’ll show up with the word “Unregistered” for a second or two before a refresh of the window which removes the text from the window’s titlebar text.
thank you, @Mili will be checking it out!
thanks very much @trparky, reproduced it and it has been logged in
I’ve been attempting to reproduce the “unregistered” text appearing but I cannot. Does the text appear at the top title bar? Is it possible to send a screenshot of it?
It only shows up for a split second, you have to really be paying attention. If I had to hazard a guess, the code that loads the fact that it’s a registered version isn’t loaded early enough during the application initialization phase.
