Strange, because the crash is that the AVX2 cpu instructions is not allowed. 

I'm running Windows 7 SP1.

Already had in my system:
- Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 9.0.30729.6161
- Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 10.0.30319
- Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2022 14.31.31103

Updated to Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2022 14.32.31326. Rebooted the computer. But nothing helped. Crash-ID: 12-L120AF

Are you really sure it is SP1 ?
Because the crash is in the new unzip code. The new unzip code uses AVX2 CPU instruction for faster performance (If the CPU supports it).
But AVX2 CPU instruction also require OS support and that was not added until Windows 7 SP1. So that would explain the crash.
Not sure if the AVX2 support is something that can be turned off someplace in the OS.

I have it running on a clean Windows 7 Sp1 on a virtual machine.. I don't have one without Win7. can't install that anymore

you have not by any chance modified the boot kernal parameters and have run

"bcdedit /set xsavedisable 1"  ?

That would disable the OS support for AVX2.  so doing "bcdedit /set xsavedisable 0" should enable it again..

Yes. I can open and files with Windows Exporer. I even checked the archives for integrity in Winrar 6.11 and 7-zip 21.07 and 22.00- No errors found. Can I provide any additional information to solve the problem?
Also are you running Windows 7 or Windows 7 SP1 ?

You can try to install the Microsoft VC Redist 14.32

It should be built into the exe, but Windows 7 is weird. and might require as a side by side install.

(Move topic to Beta section, since v12 is only out as beta..)

According to the crashdump it is when trying to read the language file. I can't see exactly what since the minimum crashdump does not contain any data.
The crash location is very strange and should not even be possible to happen.
Maybe <appfolder>\Languages\ got corrupted ? can you open that file with Windows Exporer ?

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  :(
Strange, I cannot reproduce that, I tried to change to different date/time settings that are in MC.. But it works.
Most be some conflicting settings or something. But can't reproduce it.. very strange

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

Hi Mathias,

I reverted to the non beta. Everytime mc got focus, from alt-tab and back for instance, it created a new tab on C: on the right side. After a while, i had several extra c: tabs.
Strange, nothing about tabs has changed. I'm not able to reproduce that.
Probably some settings or combo of settings you have around tabs or something are causing that.. Problem is that I cant find what that can be.?
Have you changed customized any settings around tabs?

No change with build 2880.  Installed through MultiUpdate.

I even copied my "live" columnsets.xml to my "test" installation and still no-go :(

From columnsets.xml, the relevant row is:

<column id="0CC970781498A4EF9AA7139DA448F5744.datemodify" name="Last Modified " options="197632" width="94" paddingleft="0" paddingright="2" align="2" flags="0"/>

Edit to add:  this row is identical to my "live" config
Looks correct, Strange..

Win7 Pro x64.  MC Portable.

I just installed build 2879 and all "Last Modified Date" columns are completely empty: all tabs, including new tabs.

See attached.

Neither restarting MC nor refreshing the view makes any difference.

The columns used saved in columnsets.xml . That is the "id" for the "Last Modified" column you have..

Strange.. I'm not able to reproduce that. try 2880 just released.. but I don't think there is any change around that there,

Nice update.
Can we get more space for all text in hover window?
Sometimes the text is cut off. See attachments please.

For me PDF files are shown in an empty preview window...

It should use defined default margin in the templates now. so there should be some more space

Strange that PDF is not working for you. Do you have 3rd party PDF reader installed ? maybe they installs therir own preview handler..
Thing is that MC have almost no control at all over the Windows Preview Handler, the API for that is very basic.

Script / Re: Strange behavior with MoveFile
« on: June 15, 2022, 10:14:51 »
Thanks for answering.
It's the installed version, v11.6 (b2845).

Thats the command I try to run:
Code: [Select]
@var $files = GetSelectedPaths();
@var $count = arrayCount($files);
@var $n;

for($n = 0; $n < $count; $n++)
  @var $file = $files[$n];
if (FileExists($file) == 1 )
  @var $path = PathGetPathPart($file)
   @var $name = PathGetNamePart($file) + "|";
@var $ext = PathGetFileExtPart($file);
  @var $folder = $path ^ StrReplace( $name, $ext + "|" , "");
  MoveFile($folder + "\", $file,  "NODIALOG,NOPROGRESS,USEEXISTINGQUEUE" )

Yes looks like NOPROGRESS parameter have been broken.. I will fix that for the next version

By default it uses what you configured windows to use. But you can override that in Explorer Panel settings. Under Display tab. and down under the "Date / Time format" section
You can check "Use custom date and time format" It is the same formatting that is use in Windows

It is something like "Preview Panel". In Total Commander it is displayed in external window, but can be also displayed in Panel (like on my screenshots).
In TC it can be extended by plugins...
So Review panel, yes that is coming.. Hover Preview is like 90% of it but it is shown in a hover window instead of own panel.   It comes as hover window first since that is what I find more useful.
Showing it in a preview panel comes later.

Hover Data Functionality.

It looks promising... However, did you think about implementing such feature, like Total Commander Lister?
User select element in one panel and all related information is displayed in second panel (different information for different file type/content). Something what you did in "Hover Data".
"Lister" is better, as it can be shown imediately and can show much more info (Panel window is bigger)...

How do you think?
No idea what "lister" is. Is "lister" not just the fielist ? or Is it something like a preview panel ?

It crashed in a placed that cannot happen.. hehe. What the crash report show is not logical. So might be corrupt or something so it shown wrong.

Look like it is during startup ? Does it happens always ? sometimes ?

Support and Feedback / Re: Plugin / Extension "Picture tool"
« on: June 06, 2022, 16:30:05 »
Additional informations:
No special in log written!
Report.txt shows: "Failed - Failed to save new file" for each image
Maybe a problem with included color profile?

More photo-details - Pictures created by photographer:
MC Extension Picture tools 3a.png
MC Extension Picture tools 3b.png

and here some details from working pictures:
MC Extension Picture tools 4a.png
MC Extension Picture tools 4b.png

After some more test with this extension, I think these pictures have an unsupported format...
How can the support for such formats extended?

Not be able to recreate that.
Hmm If Im reading the images correct.. One of the pictures are 1.2 GB ?

13500x9150 is very large. Not sure if there are a limit with the image library that is used. I don't have any images that big

I frequently use Compare Folders - Advanced - Profile: Identical (By Content)

This requires three steps:
1. Open Compare Folders - Advanced
2. Select Identical (By Content) in the Profiles pulldown
3. Click Compare and Select

Is there a quicker way? I would greatly appreciate it.

Would it be possible to add any of these:
1. Add Compare folders, Select Identical by Content to Edit menu
2. Add to Keyboard Customizations commands, so a hotkey can be defined
3. Ability to set and save default Profile for Compare Folders - Advanced dialog
4. Make command available for scripting so button could be assigned for this


Might be able to add scripting support so you can create a command setting up that to do and call that.

I might be able to add that.. problem with shortname are that they are legacy and are not always available. It is a feature many turn off to improve filesystem performance.
Also windows 10 is disabling it by default for none system partitions.

If parameters have spaces you should really use " around the parameter instead relying on 8.3 names. you are just asking for problem down the line.

Yes this is a know problem I got on my list. It is a weird edge case.

Problem is that at first it detected that D:\Source and E:\Link really are the same volume
And if you do a move on same volume, the file content is not copied. the entry in the filesystem is just renamed so it is located on a new path . Like if you did not go via the symlink..  Then D:\Source would just be renamed to D:\Target\Source and no need to copy data. But this does not work over a symlink.

There are also a couple of way to solve this. Problem is that both have there own issue and drawback.

Not even windows explorer is consistent..
Copy D:\Source to E:\Link it will resolve the link and do a rename
Copy from D:\Source to E:\Link\SubFolder it does a full copy
and copying from E:\Link to D:\ it will do a full copy.

I will see if there are some easy fix for this.

I fix so the field are cleared until they are used..

Hover Data Preview-feature is really nice.
How about these icon set for this feature?

A bit more square, I like it. I will try it out. Thanks a lot.

& I noticed that the tabs - with custom colours now get blacked out randomly.... bug or not?

Hmm not see anything with that. what does it look like?

Hi Mathias,
did you find anything on the tabs issue I have? 
Here are some more examples, 3 screens of the same section of tab bar:-
Mouse cursor position determines color for some tabs, as you can see mousing away reverts others to black & in some cases color changes if selected (red to blue in the attached).
Tabs still showing colors are persistent between MC starts/reboots, the black tabs seem to always be the same & will call color on mouse contact.
I've tried reassigning colors to 'faulty' tabs but the new settings don't have any effect.

No able to recreate that  yet,
Hm wait I think there are a change, If you go in to tab properties you can now define different colors for when tab is active and inactive.
Might be that if that is not configure if does not fallback to the correct color ? So test if it helps to define an color for when tab is inactive

Say mention above.. PDF support is not fully there yet, It will probably be added in the next beta unless the Windows Preview API cause issues
Only want to report, that per default no preview handler for pdf is installed on Windows 10.

Actually Edge installs a preview handler for pdf by default.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge\Application\102.0.1245.33\PdfPreview\PdfPreviewHandler.dll

Not sure if you install something else will remove the connections for that, I guess that if you install another pdf reader that reader might install its own Pdf preview handler.
