Hmm...

Works for me in MC 11.6 and 12.8.  To clarify, did this start only after your changes of hardware/transport protocols?

Some ideas/WAGs:
Do you actually have access rights to the drive roots?
Do you have any locked tabs?
Are the new drives mounted as shares?

2
You need to Ctrl+Click every item you want to multi-select (including the first).

3
I can confirm the same failures in MC 11.6(build 2845).

Hi Ulf.

Do you have a decent text editor that supports macros (Notepad++, UltraEdit, etc)?

As a programmer, I believe it would be quicker and less effort to use one of those as the tool for the job.

Support and Feedback / Re: Problem with UserDefinedCommands.zip

I will check if it is possible to keep date/time when it rebuild the zip

Date/time would be useful, adding the a attribute would give a quicker visual cue what has changed ;)

Also the filename is not important., You can rename the script file if you want. the Guid used is the one set inside the .udc file then you can easier identify what script is what.

Sure, but I don't want to navigate from an open zip file back to MC, open UDCs and check every script to locate the Guid then go back to the zip and identify the changed script!

Support and Feedback / Problem with UserDefinedCommands.zip
« on: November 30, 2022, 00:14:44 »
Hi Mathias.

I have found a problem with UserDefinedCommands.zip.  I have 50 scripts in the zip (each identified only by its GUID).

If I modify a script with MC's editor and save the changes, the zip is updated.  So far so good.  But...

When the zip is rebuilt with my changes all files in the archive are given the same date/time stamp and all file attributes are removed.

So I have no way to identify which file in the archive was changed; there is no visible  connection between the GUId and the script name.

Script / Re: How to open a specific folder in a new tab
« on: November 19, 2022, 12:29:45 »
How about:

Code: [Select]
MC.Explorer.NewBrowser PATH="C:\\MyData\\Projects\\DesktopProjects" SIDE=SOURCE;

@mcfreddog,

sincere apologies - I did not study the images carefully enough  :o

In my (lame) defence, I always hide toolbars and icon panels in my system tools, so I never look for them.

9
I'm confused.

According to your screenshots the colored folders do show !?

10
Oh - that's a shame.

If I stumble across anything else relevant I'll post here.

Good luck.

11
@User_99, did you resolve this?

12
@AlanJB

Thx very much for you're effort. Will check the keys.

Think your're using Windows 10?

You're welcome - hope some of it helps.

No: Win7 Pro x64

I don't not have an entry for HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\txtfilelegacy.

Here are a couple of utilities you may find useful (I've used them for years - completely trustworthy):

https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/regscanner.html

https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/file_types_manager.html

Also, this tutorial may offer something (you could dissect/study the .reg files):

14
Hint/TC Changelog: Still no entry for .txt files in Context menu-New submenu on Windows because the key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\txtfilelegacy was missing a (default) value = description

I really don't know what this "default) value" could be.

Try
Code: [Select]
Text Document (works for me).

Support and Feedback / Re: Dragging bug
« on: October 19, 2022, 11:15:48 »
Result: Tab2 is activated with blank Explorer panel and drive combo-box

Hi Jungle (glad you are still with us!).

  I cannot reproduce the above step (which means I cannot reproduce the rest of the steps).

Tab2 is activated as soon as the mouse cursor passes over it, and I cannot create an "empty" (with no path) tab at all.

How do you cancel dragging?

16
For HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.txt\ShellNew\:

the Key (type REG_EXPAND_SZ) name is: ItemName

data is : @%SystemRoot%\system32\notepad.exe,-470

17
CustomKeymappings.xml should be included in your MultiCommander_ConfigBackup.zip.

Support and Feedback / Re: Can't get MC.Filesystem.Delete to work
« on: August 01, 2022, 12:50:18 »
A dialog could be helpful but only if the reason why the command includes other folders in such a surprising way gets caught.  Would adding FILTER to MC.Explorer.Delete be easier?

Now that is a good idea :D

19
Hmm Might be to dangerous function to allow delete so easy. Maybe should require a confirmation box. ?  maybe a "Do you really want to delete : <folder> ?" box ?, but the idea with script it to not have them..

@Mathias, just a thought...

You could offer the dialog by default with a "Do you really want to delete : <folder> ?" but include an optional NODIALOG parameter (similar to the Multiscript function CopyFile).

Hi Ulf.

Version?

Hi,

Backup / Restore doesn't work, after pressing this option in menu nothing happens.

I can confirm this in build 2894.

I think you have posted in the wrong forum (or this is spam).

Also normal 'date' column is Last Modified date.. they should match on normal NTFS filesystems.

Well, on a whim, I replaced column "Extended - Date Modified" with "Standard - Date" and it worked!  All dates populated.

Go figure :o

I can't make it fail. strange. will check more about it tomorrow.

Follow-up to this problem:

I deleted my test environment completely
Copied my (working) complete live environment to a separate physical drive
Launched the new test environment and checked for updates
It updated to build 2880 and...

No modified Dates  :(

No change with build 2880.  Installed through MultiUpdate.

I even copied my "live" columnsets.xml to my "test" installation and still no-go :(
I can't make it fail. strange. will check more about it tomorrow.

OK.  Thanks Mathias.
