How can one make FreeCommander work with CopyHandler?
« on: October 12, 2016, 05:30:43 am »
How can one make FreeCommander - http://freecommander.com/en/summary - work with CopyHandler?

So for instance when I drag and drop files in FreeCommander to copy / move them and when I delete them how can I make CopyHanlder to do it?

Respectively, make CH work with every program?

Can you confirm the system you're using (64 or 32 bit)? Also, which version of FreeCommander - the free 32-bit one or the donor-only 64-bit?

I have played with FreeCommander for some time since you first post and it seems it just forces standard Windows copy when pressing F5.
There is the possibility of dragging and dropping the files between panes to be able to use CH.

As for overriding F5 button - free commander allows using command line program to make the copy. At this point however CH uses xml-based task scheduling which does not integrate easily into that workflow.
I have to think about easier command line interface for that purpose (I have updated the command-line related task: https://dev.copyhandler.com/browse/CH-4).

Many thanks.

Here are some settings for it:

That would be great, how could I do it?

I assume, that's done by those settings on the screenshot.

Dragging and dropping just works (select files, drag using right mouse key and drop where you need). Make sure you have the newest version of CH (1.44) as there were some fixes there that improved that aspect of integrations.

Ah, that's great, the option is new, so I missed it.

Unfortunately I cannot use CH anymore because of its high CPU usage.

Many thanks!
