Reopening tabs issue in portable mode
« on: August 31, 2012, 17:32:11 »
Hello

I am working with v2.7 1171 32bit portable Edition, portable mode.

I have "Remember open paths"  checked and "Save only path to local harddrive" unchecked.
When I close and open MC, all tabs are there but network drives and shares are replaced by C:\ .
It seems like "Save only path to local harddrive" is forced.

The <MC install dir>\Config\ZFileManager.xml file contains:
  <save>
    <path value="1"/>
    <onlylocal value="0"/>
    <sort value="1"/>
  </save>



Could you confirm ?

TY

Works for me..  Strange.

Check in the about menu that you really are in portable mode. So their is no mix up with the configuration files.

You can also send me your MultiCommaner.xml and ZFileManager.xml config file and I can try with them.. Might be some other setting that conflict with the "Save only path to local harddrive" setting , so that it fails.

hello

portable mode: read it from dialog, to be sure :)

About xml config files: I have them on two places : <mc install dir>\Config and <mc install dir>\SessionConfig\Config.

Latest ones are in the former, but latter also has a multicommander.ini very fresh, so am not sure which one is really used. I attach those in former.

FYI, here is my folder tree in MC:

├───Config
│   ├───CfgProfiles
│   ├───Extensions
│   │   └───MultiFileViewer
│   ├───Presets
│   │   └───zFileManager
│   ├───Scripts
│   └───TOTD
├───Extensions
│   ├───FS7Zip
│   ├───FSFTP
│   ├───FSRAR
│   ├───FSRegistry
│   ├───MCAudioTools
│   ├───MCLanEditor
│   ├───MCPictureTools
│   ├───MCSpecial
│   ├───MCUtils
│   ├───MCVideoTools
│   ├───MFTools
│   └───MultiFileViewer
├───Logs
├───SessionConfig
│   ├───Config
│   │   └───Extensions
│   │       └───MultiFileViewer
│   ├───History
│   ├───Logs
│   └───Misc
└───UserData
    ├───Multi Rename
    │   └───Undo
    └───Video Tools
        └───MediaDB


PS: xml files could not be uploaded (filtered by forum). I should have zipped them.

Config/  Has the settings config fles
SessionConfig/ store configuration that are normally stored in the registry. And that are not vital for the program, Information that are session based.
Like history information for dropdown list and stuff like that, Last windows position, and stuff like that, that are not settings but information that need to be saved between restarts


I will see if I can reproduce the issue with your config files.
