Another thumbnail post ... sorry ...
« on: May 14, 2019, 18:48:48 »
Hello ...
There are just too many posts on thumbnails and with a variety of resolutions.
I have not found anything to help me.
My OLD laptop with Win10 displays the thumbnails properly in MC.
I can scale and view.
My NEW laptop with a NEW version of Win10 does not display the thumbnails.
I have rebooted laptop and restarted MC.
I have tried the view menu (changing to detail and back to thumbnails).
I have read in several posts that MC gets the thumbnails from Win10.
So ...
Something strange with my Win10?
If you need more info to help, let me know what to supply.
I am using MC 64bit Edition.  I believe the latest version.
I really want to stay with MC for my work.
Thanks for listening ...

I meant to add, thumbnails work just fine in Win10 Explorer.

Hello ...

Does anyone have any ideas what I might try?
I uninstalled and reinstalled MC.
No change.
I must be doing something wrong.
Thanks
Bob

Recent Win10 updates have broken some things in MC.
This might be one of those things.
I tend to stick to details view 90% of the time but IIRC I had a thumbnail issue a little while ago.
Using MC 8.9 b2520 beta x64, thumbnails work & this Win10 is fully updated.

I can't recreate this,  Is there any error in the app or filesystem log ? (Ctrl+L)

Also in Core Settings in the file system tab at the botton you can change some Thumbnail settings.
What settings do you have there

Sorry, I've been gone for a while.
This is what I get in the log ...

2019-06-19 19:15:44.810 Failed to get Windows Thumbnail by shell item (Error : 0x8000ffff)

Looks like one error message for each thumbnail in the folder.
Also, I have attached what is in core settings.
Thanks for checking into this ...

Hello ...
Anyone else having this problem?
It has been 2 months since I posted my initial posting.
I need to see the thumbnails.
I might have to try some other software and close this post.
Sure like using MC though.
Thanks for listening.

I have not had seen any issue with this. the Error 0x8000ffff is from windows that is had problem getting the thumbnail.. So there is nothing MC can do, It is out of the control of MC.
You are not running the 32bit version of MC on 64bit OS? I know some shell extension have issues with

I do not know why it does not work on you machine. There is some conflict, But I can say what.

You can in Thumbnail settings change to use Internal Thumbnail engine instead. However you will not get thumbnail on as much.

Thanks for checking it out.
I am running the 64bit version of MC.
Life goes on.
I know it used to work.  Maybe I'll stumble across something down the road.
Thanks again ...

Hi Bob.

Have you tried running SFC to see if it lists any problems?

Are you, by any chance, using ACDSee image viewer?

No on ACDSee.
Refresh my memory on SFC. 
What do I do?
I'm an old fart and have CRS!

From one old fart to another...

Run the following 3 lines exactly from a cmd prompt (wait for each one to finish before typing the next):
Code: [Select]
sfc.exe /scannow
findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log > "C:\sfcdetails.txt"
start "" /MAX "C:\sfcdetails.txt"

Check the output for any errors or repairs that were necessary.

Reboot & see if anything has changed (for the better!).
