Beta Releases / Re: Multi Commander 9.1 **BETA**
« on: August 12, 2019, 18:10:00 »
Thanks for the new Beta, Mathias :)

Starting to test now...

27
I could not find any (built-in) way to do this.

Can you explain why Left Arrow is "faster" than Backspace and Right Arrow is "faster" than Enter (each is one keypress) ?

Thanks, will try later today.
Your opinion?
Windows or MC issue?
Bob
Fairly sure it's a Windows issue.

Bugger  :(

If you're game, I have one last thing to try (if you're not - I understand - you've been very patient).

Step 1: create a restore point with a meaningful name (important)
Step 2: open a command prompt as Administrator
Step 3: run the following command:   DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
        Wait for it to finish. It may take several minutes (even appearing to hang), but it will finish.
        If it finds any corruption, it will contact the Microsoft servers and install anything it needs to
Step 4: Reboot and re-test.

If anything goes wrong - very unlikely - recover from your restore point.

This is my last shot, so good luck!

Hi Bob.

Looks like you had at least one Windows Update fail at some point (and the backup store is corrupt, so cannot be repaired).

When you ran Disk Cleanup (as suggested by @Anti-Bacterial) did you make sure that both Thumbnails and Windows Update Cleanup were checked?  If not, please run it again with (at least) those two options checked & reboot afterwards.

After a reboot, please check for windows updates and apply any that are found.  Reboot afterwards.

Check your thumbnail issue and let us know how you get on.

Do you use MC in Commander Style or Explorer Style?

Bob,

if you run the first and second commands I posted, you will end up with a file at C:\sfcdetails.txt which is a filtered CBS Log with only the relevant lines from SFC.

This will be small enough to attach to a reply here.

You could try this - it won't hurt as the thumbnail cache will simply rebuild itself as you browse files.  Might be worth a try.

Good catch @Anti-Bacterial: I should have thought of that (but then I am very old  ;))

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!).

HTH

Hi Bob.

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

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

36
Sorry - I misread your post.

AFAIK there is no way in MC to sort files before folders.

37
Menu -> Configuration -> Explorer Panel Settings -> Display tab -> Sorting and Columns section: uncheck Sort file and Folders separately, Folders first.

Any better?

38
Menu -> Configuration -> File Type Setup... -> Editors tab.

The following link may help.  The solution is for the "Q-Dir" file manager, but the principle should be the same.

Disclaimer:  I have not tried this.

Normally, .jar files do not contain .exe executable files.  They usually contain Java class files (among others).

44
Thanks  :D

45
So ?
View Filter, the Filter box at the bottom right in each Exploer Panel, should remember its value between restarts ?
I will check if that is possible

Mathias, if you do implement this, please make it user-configurable:  I, for one, would not want persistent filters.

46
OK.  I understand the problem now.  But I have never seen it happen.

Maybe because I user"Explorer Style" and not "Commander Style".

47
I tried to unpack the Software FontViewOk directly in the program files folder, but this did not work. MC do just nothing, say nothing when run not anyway in admin mode.
I cannot help with this because I use WinZip & 7Zip.

Have somebody testet the daylightsavings-problem when run MC permanent as admin?
What is the "daylightsavings-problem"?  I run MC permanently in Admin mode and I have no problems...

Make your selection then, from the Menu:

 Tools -> Change Properties (Attributes/Time)..., check 'Change attributes' and make your settings.

Hi Mathias, dunno if you were talking to me, shift drag only does a move here, and ctrl drag does a copy.

But that is normal Explorer (and other file commander) behaviour ???

Should that not be Ctrl + drag/drop?

Shift + drag/drop does a move in Windows Explorer...
