Re: program closes went starting config

it doesn't phone home to figure out that you are downgrading; that information is contained within the configuration files.
Everything should work fine after you click away the downgrade notice, if the license is not fake. So, good luck.

Re: Custom/Portable File Icons and .ico extension

Hey autocart, I would like to use the icon file as its own file icon in a portable file icons definition in order to be able to use this also in a portable "installation" of XY so that it does not matter what settings the target system has. In my own system, everything is ok. I think you're trying t...

Re: Reasons for using xycopy?

Actually XY can copy those metadata without xycopy, as long as the copy operation is initiated within XY. Just having Configuration > Information > Tags > Copy tags on copy operations enabled is sufficient. The impetus for XYcopy is explained here (from history.txt): v8.90.0003 - 2010-03-14 18:35 ++...

Re: xycopy forking useless

can't reproduce. This would be a pretty weird behavior since the whole point of having xycopy as a separate process is so that XYplorer doesn't get blocked during file operations.
Review your custom copy options at Tools > Configuration > File Operations.

Re: OT: Comparative Forum Stats

all regular members can see that. :)
anyway, what I found interesting is that all members over there have at least 1 post (apparently mostly one-off bug reports). But here almost half of the created accounts are inactive with 0 posts. Maybe XY has less bugs :ugeek:

Thumb-gen progress counter adjustment

I knew XY used to show a counter during thumb generation: Creating 56/1024 image.jpeg It worked as a nice progress report, I could get a rough idea for how much longer I needed to wait. But I wasn't noticing this counter anymore for a good many versions. Today I realize it's always been there, but w...

Re: Folder View subtlely

You have an FVS saved for a certain location. You navigate to that location, and the FVS gets applied. Now, suppose you make some temporary alterations to the view, maybe add a couple columns, change the view mode to thumbs. Then you navigate to another tab to do something else. Okay, now when you r...
