Download this ZIP file: http://dslstats.me.uk/files/dslstats32W-6.5.zip
Everything in the ZIP file is in a directory “dslstats32W-6.5”.
However when I extract using right click “Extract Here” the name of the directory created is “2W-6.5” !
I am running PA 22.00.09 on Windows 11. I have seen the same happen with some other kinds of archive too.
If I compress a folder to a .pa using right click, Compress to folder.pa and use the new Windows 11 menu then the Options, Configuration, Miscellaneous, Use normal relative path setting is always enabled.
But I like this option disabled so I have to use the old style menu in order to get PA to compress a folder in the way I wish.
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.
Impossible to extract a specific zip file
I just want to tell you that i discover a problem with this specific link http://www.mister-bills.com/downloads/MrBills.zip.
I can read this file but it is impossible to unzip it with PA. The internal Windows XP Pro zip/unzip can unzip it without any problem.
Could you mind tell me why a such problem occurs.
Chris is right. PA won’t extract it. But it does open and extract with 7-Zip file Manager and Winrar. :rolleyes:
Is 9.5 version of PA will solve this problem ?
I hope yes ! :)
PowerArchiver - Shell extension - test reports
“All files OK”
However, open file with PowerArchiver and then run test reports
“Unexpected end of Zip file”
But click OK (twice) and test reports “No errors in the archive”
Why is there a difference between the test reports??
I have try the same operation and i was suprise that the test reports was ok.
So i agree with your remark.
its the zip engine dynazip that is at fault here you can download a trila of it from there web site and it fails too
Even trying PA Repair doesn’t work :confused:
Open MrBills_PAFixed.zip file with PowerArchiver and then run test
Still reports “Unexpected end of Zip file”
Then click OK (twice) and test reports “No errors in the archive”
This will be fixed in 9.25. PowerArchiver will have better tolerance for out-of-spec ZIP files.
PKWare’s SecureZip as the only reference for ZIP archives extracts MrBill.zip without errors, so MrBill.zip must be a valid zip file. ;)
No, it just ignores the errors, like new PowerArchiver will do.
So where is the error in MrBill.zip exactly?
Check this release out and see if it helps:
This is 9.25 beta thats going to be published in a day or two.
Great work, express correction.
A very thanks for all the team ! :)
PowerArchvier 2005 ? is very Great with a very good team ! :)
thank you very much,
