That is a pure Windows problem and not related at all to Mc. Anyway, have you tried the Microsoft wrapper wt.exe?
For specific folder launch that is quiet not yet possible, see


- Many dialog is not change to DarkMode. All of them will not be change. But request the dialogs that pops up often for you that you want to be updated.

Hello Mathias,
I think it might be a lot of work, but what about the MultiDataViewer? I often use it, so I'm trying my luck.


Hello Mathias,

Regarding translations, can we start on this version, or is it better to wait for a more stable version?

Portable Installer (.zip)
The portable installer is named MultiCommander_x64_Portable_([version]).zip or MultiCommander_win32_Portable_([version]).zip
The portable package is a zip archive that you only need to unpack to a folder. Just make sure that you keep the folder structure from the zip package.
The portable version is the same as the installed version. The difference is that the portable version is configured to store all settings and configuration in the folder that Multi Commander is installed in and run from.
The portable version does not save anything to the registry or to the user account folder. Everything is saved in the Multi Commander folder. So the program must have write permissions to the folder that you start Multi Commander from.
This version is ideal to be installed to - and run from - a USB memory stick.


Translations And Language Packs / Re: Language Changes 6.2> 6.4

Hi Alan,

If I remember correctly my exchanges with Mathias on this, it is a way of commenting entries in English reference files. It is not impacting the translation process.
He told me that he may be cleaned one day.

Best regards.

Attached is the last translation of the MC_LangPack_fr_5.9.5_Build2805_BETA.


Very quick overview.

In the Submit Language Pack, an extra & character, "wit" without the "h"

"press then "Export/Send" button.&

A windows with a dropdown wit three options will be shown."

The google translation option do not appear too. Wanted?


Hello Mathias,

A script function to be able to download files from the internet using the HTTP, HTTPS or FTP protocol.


Script / Script to retreive and/or update sysinternals tools
« on: July 22, 2014, 21:59:30 »
I share my script in case of it can interest other people.
The need is to update "Process Explorer" tools from Sysinternals to the last version.
It verifies the registry to see if the EULA has been accepted. If it is the case, it retreives the running path to overwrite it if a newer version exists.
If no EULA, retreives the last version in a defined path.

The only possible problems is that may take a long time to respond.

Code: [Select]
// =
// Return Only wants "num"

@var $ProcExpOnlineVersion, $ProcExpLocalVersion;
@var $ProcExpOnlinePath, $ProcExpLocalPath;

@var $ExecutableName = "procexp.exe";
@var $ExeRegName = "Process Explorer";
@var $l, $o;

function GetOnlineVersion($ExecutableName)
 @var $Result
 $ProcExpOnlinePath = '\\\Tools' ^ $ExecutableName;
 $ProcExpOnlineVersion = GetFileProp($ProcExpOnlinePath , "ExtendedProp.prodVersion");
 $Result= StrReplace($ProcExpOnlineVersion , "." , "" );
 return $Result;

function GetLocalVersion($ExeRegName)
 @var $Result
 @var $exists = RegKeyExists("HKCU","Software\\Sysinternals\\" + $ExeRegName );
 if( $exists == 1 )
  $ProcExpLocalPath = RegValueGetSZ("HKCU","Software\\Sysinternals\\" + $ExeRegName, "OriginalPath");
  $ProcExpLocalVersion= GetFileProp($ProcExpLocalPath , "ExtendedProp.prodVersion");
  $Result= StrReplace($ProcExpLocalVersion, "." , "" );
  return $Result;
  $ProcExpLocalPath = "C:\\Temp" ^ $ExecutableName;
  return 0;

function CopySysTool()
 CopyFile( $ProcExpLocalPath , $ProcExpOnlinePath , "NODIALOG, OVERWRITE_ALL");

$o = GetOnlineVersion($ExecutableName);
$l = GetLocalVersion($ExeRegName);

if( StrCompareNoCase($l , "0" ) == 0 )
 if($o > $l)

« on: July 23, 2012, 16:12:02 »
Is it possible to have for each panel explorer it's own Hot Paths list?

Is it possible to add a Stop Service button when it is a service that is using the locked file?

Do you plan to realize the NL Language? If not, I can help in the way of realizing the translation files using online tools, but as I do not know at all NL language I will not understand the results and for sure it will need corrections, ... So if you are ready to verify/correct the work, I can work on it. Let me know.

When this option is used, no file is created in the destination folder selected.
Tested using the default name unkown.txt and with another one.

More the type combobox is not available in the Save As dialog.
