Exclusively for information: 7-Zip 15.12 stable release was published just 2 hours ago.

Also the version number of 7zip jumped from 9 to 15 ( There have not been a lot of version since 9, so 9 is not 6 version old)

Yes, you are right, but I never counted something only according major version builds, but between version 9.20 and 15.11 there were 18 updates released... And if you open discussion for every build, you'll see how many changes is beyond the words 'Some bugs were fixed'

May be it's a good idea to update 7z Standalone Plugin from version 9.20, that is used in MC currently?

Of course, you can say, that current 7-Zip 15.11 is only beta, but look how many problems were solved since version 9.20 was released.

Beta Releases / Re: MC 5.5.1 build 1980 failed to read config file
« on: October 25, 2015, 18:19:45 »
Desided to make update from build 1975 to MC 5.6.1 build 2021 and I see no more that problem! It works fine in Windows XP SP3. Several times before I tried update to previous beta versions and MC refused to work. So problem is fixed now (hope, forever).

It would be simple, if xdoc2txt converter would be supported in MC like in other file managers. It helps to find text in most popular office formats rtf; docx; xlsx; pptx; doc; xls; ppt; sxw; sxc; sxi; sxd; odt; ods; odp; odg; pdf; eml.

Nothing helps me to solve the problem.

I was the owner of all files, but I forced update of user rights to all MultiCommander folders incliding subfolders for Program Files and Documents and Settings.
Also changed date for all folders to current. But it also could not solve the problem.

Something is very strange with your system
I could agree, if the problem was on only one computer, but it occurs on different systems with different apps installed.

It would bad if MC could no longer support Windows XP.

Are you sure, that MC is right with problem detection?

I made one more update and restore to understand what's the problem.

I must say, that C:\Documents and Seiings\<Profile name>\Application Data\MultiCommander\Config\MultiCommander.xml has no problem at all!
I just restored data in Program Files and everything works fine.

Then I desided to change only 1 file - MultiCommander.exe to latest version and app stopped working with the same error messages! All other files were from the old version.

Once you already made non working update for Windows XP after Visual C++ update. May be problem is similar... And I don't see any messages from my AV software and nobody could change content of xml files because nobody changed them. I restored MultiCommander.exe from previous version (5.5 build 1975) and MC works again! It's a miracle! So the problem is with 1 file - new MultiCommander.exe under Windows XP SP3.

Either the file is not a valid xml file..(something have modified it)
or you do not have permission to read it
or something is blocking MC from reading it  (AV/Security software/Sandboxing)

But previous version worked without any problems! Update "killed" MC

You should not pack xml files.. they are text files and need to be that. Packing them will corrupt them
I packed file to have ability to restore them if deleting would not solve the problem.

Quote
And you should not delete the file under program files since that is the "default" file, That file is never change.

But MC suggests to delete that files! You have to change warning messages.

I have one more computer running version 5.5 build 1975. I updated it today, and got the same problem. App worked till update. Now it says the same and couldn't start.
It was absolutely different PC with different config and different apps installed. Only OS was the same - Windows XP SP3.
Thanks God I made a backup. I restored previous version from backup (5.5 build 1975) and all works again without any problems!

So it is MC problem.

Beta Releases / MC 5.5.1 build 1980 failed to read config file
« on: August 18, 2015, 19:55:27 »
After update to current beta version 5.5.1 build 1980 from previous beta (maximum 7 days have passed since previous update, it worked without any problems) I see error messages:
Failed to open or read config file: C:\Program Files\MultiCommander\Config\MultiCommander.xml
It might be corrupt try to replace it with a backup or delete it.

Failed to open or read config file: C:\Documents and Seiings\<Profile name>\Application Data\MultiCommander\Config\MultiCommander.xml
It might be corrupt try to replace it with a backup or delete it.

Both messages are shown several times.

Tried to pack xml files and deleted both MultiCommander.xml files, but problem is still present.

OS Microsoft Windows XP SP3

P.S. By the way, comma is missing (after word corrupt) in English version of error message - It might be corrupt, try to replace it with a backup or delete it.

10
Sounds good. Hope so much that it would be implemented!

11
If in Configuration - Explorer panel settings... - Layout tab - I switch off "Device dropdown list", Alt+F1/F2 stop working.
For me "Drive buttons" is enough (I don't need dropdown list), but IMHO Alt+F1/F2 should work always (as it is done in all other file managers).

Multi Commander 3.5.1 build 1530

Create any file in russian, for example "тестовый документ с русскими буквами в названии.txt". In Windows Explorer (under Windows XP SP3) right click on that file and select Send to - Compressed zip folder. Now we get archive "тестовый документ с русскими буквами в названии.zip"
If we try to open such archive with Multi Commander, we see only inexplicable symbols instead of russian.

In other commanders (like Total Commander or FreeCommander XE) the same file is opened without any problems.

If we pack file "тестовый документ с русскими буквами в названии.txt" using Multi Commander in zip format, content of archive is shown correctly.

Support and Feedback / Any plans to support new RAR5 format archives?
« on: September 04, 2013, 19:32:18 »
Now MC could not open, list archive content or unpack RAR5 archives. Files could have old RAR extension or WR5 or RAR5.
We see error message:
Failed to open volume: <full pathname>
Unknown error (0)

After program update till Release v3.3 (Build 1446) (31-Jul-2013) MC fails to start on Windows XP Pro Rus 32 bit and show error message "Procedure entry point InitializeCriticalSectionEx not found in library DLL Kernel32.dll"
in Russian - "Точка входа в процедуру InitializeCriticalSectionEx не найдена в библиотеке DLL Kernel32.dll"

Previous version 3.2 (Build 1430) (16-Jun-2013) worked without any problems.

17
Different file commander do it in a different way.
In Total Commander file under cursor is NOT selected.
In FreeCommander XE file under cursor is selected.

18
MultiCommander 3.3 build 1442 32 bit edition from Jul 28 2013 (and earlier versions)

Selecting files with Shift + Arrow Down/Up does not seem to work as it should.

The last file (the one under cursor) is selected as well, while it should not be. Also it is impossible to deselect files with Shift + Arrow Down/Up.

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Re: MC and Listary integration
« on: March 14, 2013, 13:00:12 »
Yes, something like that. Works really fast.

But some improvements in MC may be needed, to make it work in all modes with Listary (especially in filters and quick search)

Listary http://www.listary.com/ already have support of most file managers.
Do you have any plans to contact with Listary developers? It would be great to include MultiCommander support in upcoming versions of Listary.

Support and Feedback / Re: Why some folders are omitted in a MC window
« on: February 25, 2013, 19:32:08 »
But you always can show/hide "hidden files and folders" and "system files and folders" in Configuration - Explorer panel settings... - Display tab - File and folders display - Show/Hide special files and folders

Include this example with description in tooltip for future versions. I think many people do not even know of such functional existence.

Beta Releases / Re: Multi Commander v3.0 BETA 1337

Autoupdate works bad.

After first run of update, we see that there is Release v3.0 BETA (Build 1337) (9-Feb-2013)
but Multi Update says:
Checking if newer version exists.
Version information received.
Current installed version is 2.8.2.1291
No update of Multi Commander available.

Only after second run of update we can install current version.

Do not see any download links for 32 or 64 bit version MC v3.0 BETA 1337.
Check for updates in previous 1335 version reported "No new version is found!"
