Search results -->right click ->SendTo

#1 Post by fcny » 14.03.2020, 19:33

I use FreeCommander XE 2017 Build 740 32-bit on Windows 10 Pro 64 bit Version 1903.

I am familiar with adding items to the SendTo menu. For example, I added an item in the SendTo folder so that when I am in FreeCommander / Windows Explorer, I can right click on a file, and select “Send to Notepad++”.

I just noticed that this same option is available after doing a search for files within FreeCmommander. For example, if I search for files named *.txt in a subdirectory, 5 files are found, and shown in a results window by FreeCommander. I can select a few of those files, right click, and select SendTo Notepad++.

That does NOT work. FreeCommander displays an error dialog showing

“C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe The specified path does not exist.”

At one time it must have (with an earlier version of Notepad++). Now it is located in C:\Program Files\Notepad++.

All my other SendTo menus that allow “SendTo Notepad++” work fine. Also, within the files pane of FreeCommander, I can select any file(s), right click, and select “SendTo Notepad++”.

It’s only when from the FreeCommander search results view that I can not.

I’ve searched the registry, and all over the hard drive for

“C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe”

and can not find it.

Can anyone suggest how I resolve this ?

Thank you !

I'm not sure how to solve this issue, perhaps it's a bug...

Anyway, I tried drag&drop search results from container tab and it works, so you can try this as workaround. You can drag&drop to another program or to favorite toolbar icon.

If you no longer have the 32bit version of Notepad++ installed on your system,
I would search the registry for all instances of
C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe

and replace them with
C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe

Searching the registry is best using this software:

Nirsoft RegScanner

"I would search the registry for all instances of C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe
and replace them with C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe"

I said in my original message that there were NONE to be replaced.
