542 Context menus

#1 Post by By-Tor » 30.06.2011, 17:03

In alpha 542, the context menus when right clicking on a file in the right pane will appear in the left pane, nowhere near the selected file.

Same behaviour here... I went back to 540... on 542 context menus aren't showing o correct place.

Also there is a bug on every release from XE on 64 bits the context menu will not work until I go to settings page and press ok.
So after lauching the app I always need to go to settings page in order to context menu to work.

How must you close the settings dialog - OK or Cancel?
Is the same behavior if you start FC XE with an empty freecommander.ini?

Same behaviour here. :(
Context menu is shown on the left, "outside" the FreeCommander window; this only happens on the system context menu, while the context menu of FC (i.e. right click on a blank area) works fine.

Hi,

I confirm that the context menu is now on correct position.
My problem is that is constantly hanging and not showing nothing.
I notice that the FxContextMenu64 process is hang....
on 532 version I go to options-> Shell Menu and then Apply and start working again.
On 544 this workarround is not working

If you have some problem with 64 bit context menu, then switch to 32 bit context menu:
- check under help - info, the location of your freecommander.ini
- close FreeCommander XE
- open freecommander.ini with the text editor
- change/define the line in the [Form] section
ShowContextMenu64Bit=0
- save the changes
- start FreeCommander XE

The above worked for me. However, later it happened again that the
line
ShowContextMenu64Bit=0
is missing again. and I have to add it into freecommander.ini one more time to fix the same problem. Is it possible to keep the above line always in freecommander.ini without being modified unless I want it to?
