Right drag&drop menu do not work (and everything else too)
« on: April 10, 2008, 08:55:16 pm »
The "Show 'Copy' command in drag&drop menu" and "Show 'Move' command in drag&drop menu" options do not work. When the Copy option is on I have "(CH) Paste" in the drag&drop menu and the Move option gives me "(CH) Paste Special". With the other options turned on I get empty lines added to the context menu. Plus none of these commands work like expected, paste keeps trying to past the same thing that was never copied, copy never actually copies anything and goes straight to 100%. Right now I can't get 1.3 to work at all.

To make it worse I have installed 1.3 on 4 different computer at home and work and all of them have had this exact same problem. This is a shame, I've been waiting for Unicode support for years.

I just noticed that I have "Intercept Left click" off but it still intercepting them, plus it tries to do the redo the same Paste command instead of copying/moving the file that I file(s) that I attempted to interact with.

Hello,
The problems you are mentioning seems very similar to the problems resulting from using older version of shell extension dll than the program version is. The only thing you can to is to unregister the old extension, register the new one and probably restart your computer after that. In the future program will check if there is a valid version of shell extension before using it for any operation - for now you have to manually manage the versions.

Before I installed 1.3 I unregistered the old shell extension dll then exited CH. I will try manually unregistering the dll and reboot.

I unreg'd the old chext.dll and deleted it, then rebooted and reg'd the new chext.dll and it worked. Would have been nice if I figured that out a day ago, would have saved me a lot of time moving my data back to my raid, all 1.2TB worth.  ::)

Thanks!
