Re: floating preview doesnt show PDF here

I tried Foxit Reader on Windows 7 64 bit and I couldn't get thumbnails working even for Explorer. A quick look at their forum says thumbnail generation on 64 bit systems is not fully working at the moment. I tried Adobe Reader 10.1.3 on Windows 7 32 bit and thumbnails works for Explorer and XYplorer...

Re: floating preview doesnt show PDF here

Sure Don, I did something similar to what I described here for .flv viewtopic.php?f=3&t=7635 My notes are a bit fuzzy but after many experiments I think this modification gave thumbs in XYplorer Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\PDF-XChangeViewer.1\shellex\{BB...

Re: floating preview doesnt show PDF here

I have working PDF thumbnails in Windows 7 64 bit with PDF-XChange Viewer, however out of the box I could not get thumbs in XYplorer in Windows 7 32 bit nor in 64 bit, only in Windows Explorer. Had to mess a bit with the registry.

Re: Floating preview shortcuts question

Thanks j_c
I just found the shortcuts in Customize Keyboard Shortcuts > Miscellaneous

Old setup
Full Screen Preview = F11
Open in Browser Shift + F11

Fresh installation
Full Screen Preview = Shift + F11
Open in Browser = Ctrl + F11

(it was not so obvious for me at posting time).

Floating preview shortcuts question

A question about the new floating preview. I could not understand how it worked because instructions and shortcuts didn't seem right for my installed XYplorer, so after some thinking I tried a fresh copy. On the left shots from the existing XYplorer, on the right the fresh one. Senza titolo.png More...

Re: WinZip integration on 64-bit Win7

Out of curiosity I tried WinZip, I have no time to do extensive testing but I'd like to confirm that it installs both 32-bit and 64-bit shell extensions on a 64-bit (Windows 7) machine and basic operations from the contextual menu in XYplorer seems to work correctly. The version I tried says in the ...

Re: File copy to/from Remote Desktop Connection and/or VMWar

After tons of tries I came to the conclusion that it cannot be tested I mean: the "paste" command of a dummy zip file is enabled only if the file is available in the virtual machine in the temp location, otherwise there are only cut and copy, no paste is available in the contextual menu. By the way,...

Re: File copy to/from Remote Desktop Connection and/or VMWar

Mh I think that maybe I didn't manage to explain how it works :oops: Suppose we perform a copy of a file on the real system (Ctrl+C), and let's look at the clipboard on the real system, there's a CF_HDROP which holds the full path/name to the file on the real system. Ok it's clear. Now we focus on t...

Re: File copy to/from Remote Desktop Connection and/or VMWar

OK; can you think of any way I could detect whether the current clipboard is from VMWare? In that case I could force a shell paste (instead of XY's native paste) which should work (because I'm sure all other FMs do it that way). What about triggering a shell paste if the file names in CF_HDROP cont...

Re: Video thumbs for .avi & .wmv only

Don this seems to me a kind of black magic at the moment because I'm not an expert at all. I'll recap what I did. I set up an absolutely fresh Windows 7 64 bit virtual machine with nothing inside. The goal was to reproduce .flv files (actually this may be inaccurate to say because .flv is a kind of ...

Re: Video thumbs for .avi & .wmv only

After hours of experiments... this registry modification gave me thumbnails Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\.flv\ShellEx\{BB2E617C-0920-11D1-9A0B-00C04FC2D6C1}] @="{c5a40261-cd64-4ccf-84cb-c394da41d590}" I don't know if it's a workaround for a real problem. ...

Re: Multilingual Support

Some thoughts... I saw a bit of demand for a multilingual version. When I showed XYplorer to other people one of the first questions was always, does it exist in italian? well for completeness most also said, for my use I don't need it, Explorer is enough for me :( I love my language, however I ofte...

Re: Video thumbs for .avi & .wmv only

Not to hijack another thread but this is recent and seems to fit :) I never used thumbnails before but today I decided to fight with codecs and related stuff, anyway whatever I try, I am not able to produce thumbnails for the .flv format in XYplorer (I didn't move testing other formats yet). The OS ...

Re: File copy to/from Remote Desktop Connection and/or VMWar

I always suffered the same problem and worked around using Explorer but I'm not sure it's XYplorer fault. This is the clipboard format, generated on the virtual machine, for a sample file XYplorer fails to paste in the VM after copying on the real machine, I don't know if it says something useful.
