After update to this beta, when I try to start MC, it takes over 1,5GB of RAM in few seconds and no window of MC shows. I have to kill the app. I must downgrade :)

Try the following:
1. In your previous working version perform "Backup configuration"
2. Perform clean install (or unpack portable) of the latest version
3. Upgrade to the latest beta
4. Perform "Restore configuration"

This helped me.

Strange..  Try to create a dump file from task manager on multicommander.exe when it starts and upload that to http://multicommander.com/upload

Anyone else get this behavior ??
if you do.., Please create a dump file before you fix it. So I can get a hint from the dump file on why this is happening.

This issue is fixed in build 1900
To get 1899 to start  delete the "SessionConfig\History" folder

From bulid 1908 there is a new script function to download a file from an HTTP/HTTPS.

example script that download sysinternals tools and unpack them

Quote
@var $url = 'http://download.sysinternals.com/files/SysinternalsSuite.zip';
@var $file = 'R:\SysInternals.zip'
@var $res = NetWGet($file, $url, "OVERWRITE");
if($res > 0)
{
 UnpackFile($file, 'R:\SysInternals\', "*.*", "OVERWRITEALL");
 DeleteFile($file, "NODIALOG, SILENT, NOPROGRESS");
}
else
{
  LogAppInfo("Failed to download. Error " + $res);
}
(Make sure you change the path where to save and unpack to a location that exists on your system)

Since updating to 5.1 b1913 (W7x64) today, I find all my jpgs now open with the native MC viewer, (I have been using irfanview normally as it has a bit more functionality) but despite resetting the default app for the jpg ext I cannot directly open them with irfanview any more.  Always uses the MC viewer unless I right click/open with.
I haven't rebooted the PC yet but I thought I better mention it...   ;)

Change Log
CHANGE- FileType Default setup change to use Internal Picture viewer when "open/run" a images file.
(If you have done any changes to the FileType setup before, you will not get this behavior. You only get it if you are running the unmodified defaults)
A lot of uses have complain that the viewer is not used when they double click on files.  "MC suppose to have a built in viewer.. why does it not show my image when I click on it"
Answer is Because because clicking it will call for the open/Run action and not the view action. But for most uses there is no difference.
So because of that I added that the default file type setup include an entry to use internal viewer for picture files for Run/Open action.

Menu > Configuration > File Type Setup > Launchers (Run/Open) tab
Remove the "MC Picture Viewer" row in that tab and what ever windows has associated will not be used again..

I'm not sure I will keep this behavior as default. Maybe depends on what sides complains more.
Problem is that it hides the associated 3de party program (like you noticed). But if you do not have that installed you will now get the internal viewer.

When I read that CHANGE I was thinking that it was the Windows ext settings, not the internal MC settings, that had been altered.  ::)
I didn't think of the MC FileType setup as I have rarely used that in the past, (but I really should have as it is a useful extra layer). Swapping notepad for notepad++ & adding some file types was the main thing I changed.

I can see the problem of MCViewer or not as default, I also wondered where the native image display was sometimes but as normally I use MC with irfanview it hadn't been an issue. 
The MC viewer is definitely better as default for a portable install for me at least.

Shows there are many features I have not explored fully in MC!
But Thanks Mathias - now I know how to change it as req'd  ;D
