Re: Recent versions slow to load

Using v20.90, my XY is loading up in around 440 ms with over 40 toolbar buttons and colored tabs.

Re: Freezing / lagging during thumbnail creation

Hey m48tx, through out the script and my first post in this thread it is " ...2, 0". I changed the "0" to "1" only so you could better see what was going on when troubleshooting. Hi highend, throughout the Thumbnail script I was using cmd /c as the lead-in for running the script in the background. I...

Re: Freezing / lagging during thumbnail creation

No, it's just a "better be on the safe side". OK I see what you mean, but in my specific case, in the "command" field the full path of XY is provided via <xy>. Help for SC run directory field states, The working directory, allows you to skip the path in command; defaults to current path. So it defa...

Re: Freezing / lagging during thumbnail creation

Thanks highend. Should have thought of using a heredoc. It does seem to resolve many of the issues in running these type of scripts. For setups with XY in Program files folder or other folders with spaces, is it necessary to have "%Temp%" in the directory field. Just curious. For me your code line w...

Re: Freezing / lagging during thumbnail creation

I uninstalled XY from "C:\Program Files (x86)" and installed it in "C:\XYplorer" and the script line works. I suppose that's telling us that the issue is the spaces in your path (when XYplorer was located in the Program files folder). The problem is: I've ran the code with """<xy>""" with and witho...

Re: Freezing / lagging during thumbnail creation

However, after creating all thumbnails, the thumbnails were created a 2nd time. Well, it seems we are making some progress anyway. Yes, for that single line of code the thumbnails would be created once due to running ID #307. When the folder (which you had no thumbs) is entered and that CID is exec...

Re: Freezing / lagging during thumbnail creation

Hi m48tx, the only thing I would suggest trying is running the code line without the "/win=tray" and simplified so you might see what's going on and to ensure it's not something else in the line causing an issue. run "<xy> /path=""D:\your picture path\"" /new /script=""::#307;wait 1000;#1001;#501;wa...

Re: Freezing / lagging during thumbnail creation

...but nothing else seems to happen. Well it could it be that it may seem that nothing happens because the work is being done in a 2nd instance of XYplorer (i.e., you should see an XY icon in the tray when the 2nd instance starts and the thumbnails are built in the path you specified). If it's a la...

Re: Freezing / lagging during thumbnail creation

Hi highend, thanks I was just doing some experimenting. My Thumbnail Maintenance script has always used lines similar to the following. It uses run "cmd /c <xy>...". Now that's always worked for me and I suppose others, but maybe I should be triple quoting <xy> in the event of XYplorer in a path wit...

Re: Freezing / lagging during thumbnail creation

Hi m48tx, it still bothers me why you have no success running that SC run script line. Could you try running the following from the Scripting menu > Run script... Change the path in that line to one where you have pictures, but don't have that as your current path. run "<xy> /path=""D:\your picture ...

I had to enter ::e get("instance"); but regardless, thanks for this.
Sorry, apply this tweak to eliminate the need for the "::"

Re: Freezing / lagging during thumbnail creation

When I follow your instructions, this is what happens... "The system can't find the specified file" error - I'm not sure if it can't find XYplorer possibly because of spaces in your path or it can't find "cmd". Have you tried modifying the one liner to run by itself (i.e., not using the Thumbnail M...

Re: Freezing / lagging during thumbnail creation

1) There is no way to tell which instance is active. Pay close attention to taskbar. typing e get("instance"); in the address bar will tell you what instance is active, but that may not work if thumbnail creation is in progress in that instance. 2) You should create all required thumbnails in insta...

Re: Freezing / lagging during thumbnail creation

You can definitely create or rebuild thumbnails in a background instance of XYplorer and those thumbnails will be available for proper use in the original instance of XY. This is done as a default option in the Thumbnail Maintenance script https://www.xyplorer.com/xyfc/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=12257 . Th...
