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 USB DVD-RW not in dropdown list
I have a “USB2.0” DVD-RW drive with a blank 700MB CD-R inserted.
Windows 10 sees in just fine explorer and it’s usable, and works.
However it is not showing in any dropdown in PowerArchiver.
Thanks for any help…
PowerArchiver 20.10.02 (05/2021) 64-bit
Windows 10 Pro
20H2 build: 19042.1348
Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3920.0
Okay well DVD+R works fine, just not CD-R with PowerArchiver Maybe it’s the disks that aren’t compatible. “Sony CD-R 700MB Supremas” Windows is able format the disk, I have tried not doing any formatting, and I have also tried formatting. Maybe I need CD+R
No big deal, the the disks are not even usable at all on another PC with SATA DVD SuperWrite Master…
So I believe it’s the disks, I have had them for at least 20 years.
Update: the drive is listed as reading and writing all types of disks.
Lite-On EBAU108 External DVD-Writer “EBAU108-11 (6)”
Just wanted to add that.
So still not sure of the issue, seems I had this issue before in the past.
Update: I have tested the DVD-RW drive on 2 other computers running windows 10 20H2 & 21H1 and burning the ISO to disc using Windows built in utility (Not PA) worked fine (PA is NOT installed)
PowerArchiver is not installed on either of them.
However I tested on a 4th computer Windows 10 20H2 (PA is not installed on) however I have installed PA Portable on that PC.
I had the same issue not able to burn ISO to Disc using Windows built in utility or PA Portable.
So far where PowerArchiver is present I cannot burn ISO to Disc.
I was able to get my discs made though.
Still trying to figure it out.
Verified: Uninstalling PowerArchiver from the system solved the issue.
I can now burn ISO files to the DVD-RW / CD-R Disc.
