MC frozen while opening file
« on: May 24, 2013, 09:43:03 »
Hello

On my poor desktop, when I ask MC to open a code file with VS2010, which is quite long to load. While VS has not finished loading, MC is frozen and I cannot work with even the other panel.

Is there a way to make the opening thread less preemptive ?

Strange..

When you dbl click to open something, it is sent to windows to open it (Using ShellExecute). and then MC continue.
MC does not wait for the program to load.

Unless some other software hooked it self into the ShellExeute process in window and makes it lock. AntiVirus maybe ?

Antivirus maybe. It will be hard to check.

BTW, I also have a "Switch To" dialog that appears if I try to interact with MC while it handles drag'n'drop from an external explorer window.

Yes, Drag and drop between application are a mess.

For some drag data types this can happen. Often it is if you drag from MC to an other app and this app does not release the data until it is done.
or if you drop in MC and it is of some special drag data type that prevent it being moved to a background thread.

Ah, nice to know.
Yes, When I think about it, this dialog appears more often when I drag out.

Thank you
