Columns not populated in file list for certain file types

#1 Post by bugmenot » 23.10.2016, 17:37

Many columns are not populated in the FreeCommander file list for files with certain extensions. This happens whenever a file has an extension associated with a Windows property handler, but the file is in the wrong format for that property handler. For example, a 16-bit MS-DOS executable with the .exe extension will not display its owner on an NTFS volume. The problem goes away as soon as you rename the file with extension that doesn't have a property handler, like .txt. The missing columns include those populated by the property handler of course, but also many columns that should be populated for any file. This bug only affects Windows columns, native FreeCommander columns are always populated.

Steps to reproduce
  1. Switch the file list to detailed view
  2. Add the following Windows columns
    • Attributes
    • Availability
    • Computer
    • Date accessed
    • Date created
    • Date modified
    • File extension
    • Filename
    • Folder
    • Folder name
    • Folder path
    • Item type
    • Kind
    • Link status
    • Owner
    • Path
    • Perceived type
    • Rating
    • Shared
    • Sharing status
    • Size
    • Space free
    • Space used
    • Total size
    • Type
  3. Create an empty file named "file.exe"
Expected result
All Windows columns in the list above should be populated for "file.exe".

Observed result
Only these Windows columns are populated for "file.exe":
  • Attributes
  • Date accessed
  • Date created
  • Date modified
  • Item type
  • Size
The following Windows columns are not populated for "file.exe":
  • Availability
  • Computer
  • File extension
  • Filename
  • Folder
  • Folder name
  • Folder path
  • Kind
  • Link status
  • Owner
  • Path
  • Perceived type
  • Rating
  • Shared
  • Sharing status
  • Space free
  • Space used
  • Total size
  • Type
