It depends on your setup and what you done.
If it is because it tries to go to the network devices at startup , then it is because you enabled that option. By default MC do not remember paths to networks locations just for this reason that it can halt the startup until it timeout (can be 1-2 minutes. depends on how windows is configured)

You can enabled that again in Explorer Panel settings under the "Save on exit" section

I don't know what that script does. It look large and I can't process all that and test it now.
I do not currently have the time to test all script function to see what is working and what is not. And I also suspect that it depends on in with context it is being used. sometimes you might want absolute path and sometimes the virtual.
If you run into a script function that does not work I can take a look quick look and see

Strange have not seen anything like that. It can be anything that cause a crash.

When it sends a crash report it shows a dialog with a crashId. With that id I can locate what crash report it is and take a look.

RES: is a virtual device. So the script see it as any other device, So most script function should work on it.
However some might get the virtual path instead of the absolute path.

So what script function are not working ?

Headers are still there so you can still sort content by different things, and the column size are controlled by the first column.
Flexible column size is not support in list mode, because it is a mess to implement that and it also causing some weird behaviours in some situations.

Yes I know :), Problem is that the dialog that pops up saying you need to restart is ignored by many, We are so used to just click away dialogs popping up.
But there are plans to fix that.

At first start up it converts and migrate the script to its new format. so probably somethings with hooking up key binding after migration. I will look at that.

The Zip icon is because the each script is now stored as separate files. And script files can be bundle together in a zip.. and all scripts migrated from previous version are bundled into a zip in the script folder. And if they are located inside a zip, you see the zip icon.

You should not override scaling in compatibility mode for MC since MC will try to scale depending on dpi.
at 250% scaling It works for me if I have auto scaling enabling in MC for toolbar and set it to 100%.. 100% without scaling is 16px so with 250% scaling it should be 40px
After doing changes in MC you need to restart MC since not all parts can resize dyanmically.

What settings are you using for toolbar icon size in Core settings and is auto scale enabled/disabled, and what DPI Scaling settings du you have in Windows.

1. OK. I hope it will change in future.
2. It is happening constantly to me... I will try to record some video, to show you... I know, you have to reproduce it to fix, but maybe we will be lucky :)

Ps: I posted this questions in MC 11 beta thread, because I use the latest beta and all I described was in new beta... btw, are you going to release new version before end of month mybe?
Is there any release date or you just release it when "it will be ready" (no major bugs)?

Thank you for Multi Commander. It is great piece of software!

Beta thread are for things listed as added/fixed in the beta. :)
New release has no fixed date. it depends.  There is a Release Candidate now and unless some major issue is found among the new/fixed stuff or other major issue found.. a final will probably be out in a couple of days.

(Moved post, It is not a question about the beta.)

1. No it is not currently possible

2.I have not seen that.. The coloring is happening in the background after the FS is scanned. and maybe if the FS is updating a lot it can take a while for it to activate

It is not the password that is the is that the archive in encrypted using AES and MC do not currently support the extended compression method AES. AES is an extension to Zip and is not in the standard.

It works for me so you have to be a bit more specific.
Zip is not a standard that many packers are fully following when using extended features. Some zip software do their own thing and do not follow the standard so they can add support for encryption and such.

I would like to askabout MultiScript. Is there a way to get the Windows known folders path using MultiScript?

I know, Multi Commander supports TranslateEnvString function to get environment path, for example:
Code: [Select]
@var $tag = TranslateEnvString("%WINDIR%");It works great, but there is not much env variables to get...

There are plenty of Windows CSIDL_* variables ( Can I use it? How?
Or can I use guids? For example: {031E4825-7B94-4dc3-B131-E946B44C8DD5} (this should points to Windows Libraries)?

Is there support for SHGetKnownFolderPath() function to get all this paths?

I would like to display given path in MC Explorer list, using Multi Script commands via custom menu.

Thanks for any help,
No there is no function that expose Windows SHGetKnowFolderPath. Problem is that many of the path there are not real existing path.
Windows Libraries are not a folder location. It is a virtual shell folder for Windows Shell. and MC do not show them since MC is not built ontop of Windows Shell. MC show the FileSystem as it is.

Did it few times with no success (forced few times) - even fresh instalation with deleted all files, folders created by previous instalation.

Everything works OK if I choose instalation for single user (I have two users - maybe here is the reason).
Additionaly backup of existing configuration do not copy all data from Roaming folder (scripts for sure are missed in the zip file).

Portable version works correctly also with upgrade.

Such problem I see since I use MC (few years).

I have all updates installed to my Windows 10 Pro.

Very strange. I tried on many machines. Works. so I have no clue why it fails for you.

Here you have log file.
I see that all extensions are in instalation folder.

Very stange.. Something gone wrong and it did not update any files except the .exe
try to do a force upgrade
Start MultiUpdate.exe  in setting enable "force update even if no new version is found"
then start the update process.. it should redownload it and try to replace all files.
(Also enable the show extended information checkbox below the Start button)

This is the situation in Extension Manager.
In MultiUpdate_log.txt file I have only 32 rows and no errors.
And it show that it copy the files ?

I don't know why it failed for you. I cant reproduce that.

In last version of MC - RC build 2765 extensions don't work.
I've upgraded and then do fresh instalation and I've got the same problem in both cases. Switching to admin rights do not help.
Cant recreate that. Is there any errors in MultiUpdate_log.txt
Also check Menu> Config > Extension  dialog and check the Interface version. must be that some of extension failed to be replaced

I see. Thanks.

I feel Multi Commander is not easy to preview multiple files.

I found a preview app for Windows Explorer named QuickLook It's quite handy. Its preview window stays on top, and reflects the selected file promptly. It would be great to let MultiCommander trigger QuickLook.
The viewer is not a previewer.. it is a full viewer and text analyzer.  A preview way is planned. in some way.. not decided how..

Selected Many files. then select view. it will have them all ready for view..
Then in viewer you see [1/x] in the title bar.. and if you press ctrl+pgdn it will go to the next file.. and ctrl+pgup it will go back to previous file.

normaly UTF8 file will have a BOM bytes in the beginning. If they do, it will be loaded as UTF8.
But you can also add a configure a profile that openen all *.txt files as UTF8 or similar
check out
In MultiDataViewer
Menu > Options > Configuration Profiles

I can't reproduce that.
Make sure you have not reconfigured F7 to something else.

PS this is not so important but I also just noticed another visual bug (screenshot attached)
Maybe DPI related; I'm on 3840x2160/250% (thinkpad T580)

Fixed in latest beta

Hello Mathias,
I've just updated from 9.7 to 10.3 and got an empty toolbar here (not sure if this is related to this BETA).
Do you have an idea what caused that? Can I completely remove it like before?
I'm not able to reproduce that. Can be some missmatch with configuration since the toolbar is rewritten. Try to enable it and then disable it again
Just reproduced that on a clean 10.3 MC disabling the following:
Core settings->Standard Commands
Explorer panel settings->Layout->File commands
Explorer panel settings->Layout->Drive buttons

In previous versions that bar was hidden if the above options are disabled, now there is an empty bar.
Is this possible to bring back the old behaviour? I enjoyed my minimalist hotkey-oriented setup  :)

Try disable them in the menu->view->toolbar instead
