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 Bug: The context menu requires registration
Bug: When I use the right button on any folder to bring up the menu and click on e.g. compress or decompress, the program still requires registration even if it is correctly registered. When working with the folder, via the running Power Archiver, everything is fine. (Windows 10 - v. 20.10.03)
Thank you for reporting this, this is not intended behaviour. Can you send to firstname.lastname@example.org export to txt of your HKCU\Software\PowerArchiverInt registry entry, so we can try to reproduce with same settings as you have.
I sent a txt file of the registry to support, but now I
tried to install PA on my Surface Pro 7 with W11 and the problem is there too.
The same behavior, when I open PA, it is functional and registered, if for any file
I right-click and select e.g. wrap or unwrap, a registration request pops up immediately.
So it’s not a single computer problem. (This information as a second email also sent to support.)
