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 configure clouds hangs up system
This are the steps :
- in Options, select ‘configure clouds’
- try now to quit this option…
No way, everything is locked up, the only way is using the task manager to quit PA.
Thanks for the report and nice to hear from you!
Please try with this latest final release candidate, where it should work OK:
let us know if it’s OK and thanks again!
As the RC Candidate 21.00.14 overwrote my version 20.10.02 and considered me as an unregistered user, I uninstalled PA completely and downloaded the latest official version 20.10.03 and I am back in business and without that options clouds problem…
Strange : when I checked for updates I never got the release 20.10.03 in the picture (patchbeam fast ring ??)
Is there no way to install RC Candidate 2022 beside your installed PA. Now the soft detects an existing installation and consider it as an upgrade and gently overwrite your existing PA …
Kind regards, Pirrbe
