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.
Shell extensions don't work in winxp 64
I have recently installed winxp 64-bit on my computer and after installing power archiver I realized that the shell extensions didn’t appear. I checked in the settings and they were turned on and I also tried restarting. Anyways, I browsed here and read a post about Power Archiver coming out with a 64-bit version after Delphi came out in 64-bit (which, it sounded like, wouldn’t be for a long time) and thought that was it. But then I saw a post about winRar which had the exact same problem getting fixed with a registry hack. So, I was wondering, if there is any solution to the shell extensions problem?
Thanks in advance
No, there isn’t easy solution, nor any registry hack fixes the problem. We have to rewrite shell extensions using new VC++ and hope we will do this in near future.
main problem is windowsxp84 is a rewrite of xp with changes that aren’t compatiable with like programs
