Well that dialog have lots of features that you can select for copy/move. Going with default operation you just press return. takes 1/4s

You can choose to do parallel copy operations.
When you starts a second copy operation you get the question to queue it or start a new copy process. if you start a a new you get two at the same time.

If you only to match folders you can in the advanced dialog in attribute tab check "folder" for file attribute.

Mathias, today all my colored tabs except one are gone.

Hmm Strange.. I can't recreate it..
Do you know what you did to make it loose the colors settings ?
Did you change some other settings. ? close tabs. opened new ?

That is not "programing code" , pdf and word are complex formats and MC is showing the content as it is.. in its binary format.
MC do not have support for viewing complex format like pdf,word. That would be project by it self that are larger then MC.
And buying in ready code for showing pdf,word are not cheap and since MC is free the budget is limited.

But your browser should be able to view PDF.  so just press return/dbl click on the pdf and it should be opened by your browser. and MS have Word viewers you can install for free to view word docs.

Sorry I had missed that. That is fixed now

1) Custom color for tab should be saved. Installed or Portable ?

2) It is planned.  Problem is that they are colliding with shurtcuts in main app..  So some things need to be redesigned to make it work

Strange. Does older version work ?

Try disable update check. Maybe you got some Security/Firewall Software that kill programs that access the internet..

open command program from the location that MC is installed and then do
"multicommander.exe -NOUPDATECHECK"

Everything loads.. so somethings must be closing it after it starts.
I don't know what can cause that to happen.

have you checked TaskManager that the MultiCommander.exe process goes away ?
You sure it did not send any crashreport ?  (dialog showing a crash id is shown )

Maybe a problem with your C++  Rzbtine Installation. You can install
 maybe it works then again.
Rzbtine ? 

MC do not require any runtime dependencies. All dependencies are linked statically into the MC.. (thats why the .exe is a bit big..) Just to avoid issues with missmatched runtimes.

Try the portable verson. it does not relay on any previous settings (if something got miss configured and creted a conflict)

No crash dialog ?
Go to log folder
for installed version it is
and see the latest *-MultiCommander.log and if there are any error there.

If portable edition, the log is located in Logs/ subfolder of where the portable is run from

Check security software so it does not close it. Filemanagers look suspicious to security software since they have code in them to read/write lots of files things, so some security software are blocking apps like that

Are you sure it is standard "Onedrive for business" ?
Might be something else.. that hook it self into windows in some other way

I'm not sure, It should just work. I don't think windows get the OneDrive folder based on environment variables.

Is the OneDrive folder in the tree view in windows explorer correct ?

Well MC ask Windows for the OneDrive location. Windows keep track of that it self in newer versions of windows.
Only if Windows return that it can't find it, Does it fall backs to try the old ways and tries to get the OneDrive location from the registry and if that fails. the Sky Drive location.

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Re: SFTP using scp
« on: March 09, 2020, 14:31:40 »
The different is that TC cost money and have a budget to buy in code that does this.
SFTP it not the same as FTP-S, It is totally different and to be able to include it I need a 3rd party code that does this becuse develop everything from scratch my self is not an options since that would take to much time.
But since MC is free the budget is not there to buy a ready package for that. So I have to use free versions. And last time I look the free version I found was not an option.
But It is on my list and It will be added if possible sometimes..


Code: [Select]
@var $selectedItems = GetSelectedPaths();
@var $selected = ArrayToString( $selectedItems , "  ", 1 ); // space separated list with all selected items

@var $cmd = "c:\myprog.exe " + $selected;
MC.Run CMD={$cmd}

You can add shortcuts/favorites to the menu by creating simple small UserDefindCommands and place them in the menu

Having favorites behind the "star" icons is pretty common things. I think most users understand that.

That is happening becuse you start at character 3 that is a space,  then say that it should be 4 characters in length.
And they are the same for all files..  " 02 " so thats why you get a conflict.

But if they all are the same name it will not be able to rename it, you get a conflict, But you can add a counter at the end [C]
[N1,16][C]  to get a number at the end

You should be able to do this using MultiScript.  (UserDefinedCommand of MultiScript type)

From the script you can get all selected, and then loop all the items and execute a command for each items..

I did not keep the files. But did content search for "foobar" and it searched them all.
Are you sure you had the same search parameters for both programs? I don't know what why there is a difference..

However it works, Even if it is a lite slower I can't spend massive amount of time right now on doing tweaking to just speed up something that works.
How often to you really search the content of 1.7GB+ files.
I put it on the list for future task "investigate performance of content search"  But sorry, it is not on top of my list.

« on: February 13, 2020, 22:33:57 »
Speed depends on so much, if it is doing text search in binary files or not and so on. How large the files are and so on.
I can search over 100.000 files in a few seconds on my test machine, so not sure what takes time on your

I found a FreeCAD- that was 1.7GB unpacked on github..unpacked it..  took me 4s to search it all on a normal spinning drive .
 (but I suspect everything was in memory cache in windows, since the unpack)

Sound very strange. like somethings is ignoring commands from MC.
Copy and Move are same.. move are copy with delete after (unless it is a move on same disk)
(If it is connected as a filesystem.. if it is connected as a portable devies  WPD: then anythings can happens, it is up to the device.)

In the filesytem log you can see that it does  Ctrl+L

That sounds strange. I'm not able to recreate that.
What kind of default setup do you use.. Commander styled or WinExplorer style ?
Before copy how many selected items does it say in the status row.

1. No! Everybody can't see it.. Only if somebody do a man in the middle attack they possible can.
Also SMF also do some encryption before sending it so that should not be an issue.. 
Also the password is not stored in the forum system. only a hash of it.

2. That is a false positive. If you got the executable from my site.
It is called AV Hell, AV software these day create lot of havoc and report more false reports then real. And there is nothing small developers can do about that.
So often when something is reported you need to go to  and check. and if not a lots of the AV there are reporting it, It should be safe.
The problem is that you can not trust the reports of a single AV software because it is so easy to get flagged even for clean apps.


2. eh ?
3. eh ?

4. of course not, Replacing standard dialogs in windows would require hooking into standard Windows behaviour and MC do not hook it self into Windows to change anything in Windows.

5. Can, But not fully supported since it is not designed to work like that.

6. Unreal ?

How to you swap between Chinese and Japanese ?
Go into explorer Panel settings and change the font for the list panel ?
