Checking Path-Window

Hi On wake-up from Lock/Hibernation, Salamander shows the "Checking path ..." dialog on on top of other, unrelated windows, even when salamander's main window is entirely covered by that other window. In my opinion, it should show on top of salamander's main windows, but below any other windows cove...

Operation masks are not supported when unpacking from archiv

Copy Error Operation masks are not supported when unpacking from archives (target path must exist or end on backslash). Could this restriction please be lifted when copy is used from panel with opened archive to panel with file system. I need this mostly to compare individual files on disk with it's...

Re: Internal viewer position on minimized main window

I can confirm Jan's description. Nothing random here. wqweto (and Ether), what exactly do you refer to when saying "pretty random"? Does each new viewer window appear in a different size and/or position? Or does each viewer window appear alike but not in sync with Salamander's restored window positi...

Re: Caps Lock and drive change hotkeys

Thanks. SelfMan, but that key or value is non-existent. But I did something, that fixed it for my Win8 system. I changed the order of languages in the language control panel applet. I moved English (United States) to the top, then checked AS. The issue was gone. I changed it back, German (Germany) t...

Re: Caps Lock and drive change hotkeys

I now tried the virtual keyboard. It works as you said. The caps lock key does not influence the hot key combination.

I could not find any non-German HW-keyboards available to me.

Re: Caps Lock and drive change hotkeys

Do you talk about the hardware?
If I am not mistaken you just exchange the key caps.

Re: Caps Lock and drive change hotkeys

I can't believe no one can reproduce this. If so, certainly someone can tell me how to fix this on my end. With any AS version from 2.50 to 3.0 I checked, on any OS version from XP to Win 8 including server versions (not each end every one tested), regardless of x86 or x64, regardless of whether i c...

Re: App Paths problem

Yes, thanks Jan.

That's what I understood from the preceding communication. The solution is not perfect, but in my opinion absolutely adequate and sufficient.

I came up with the thoughts expressed in the former post while thinking about the perfect fix. I just thought I share.

Re: App Paths problem

Thanks, Jan. I thought about it again, and I came up with two possible solutions, both not perfect and maybe not worth the hassle: Try to compose the path from the values in the registry (user and machine) and additionally apply settings in App Paths (User or Machine) for salamand.exe on top of this...

Re: App Paths problem

We should probably introduce a new option (command line switch or inside AS configuration) to disable run-time environment variables regeneration. Yes, I thought about this, but hoped you'd be able to fix this for good. Are you able to pass such option as command line parameter? Yes, I was, but wou...

Re: Caps Lock and drive change hotkeys

Hi Jan, thanks for your investigation and reply. I use German windows. It' the same behavior for German (Germany) locale, both with deutsch and deutsch (IBM) layout. It is also the same with English (USA) locale and it's default layout US. This is tested on Windows 7 Professional. The incident that ...

x64 command line from AS x86

Hi everyone, I wondered, is there a way to launch the 64-bit version of cmd.exe from AS (x86) using its Command Shell command and/or the Command Line (Toolbar)? One way might be to alter the ComSpec environment variable to point to %SystemRoot%\sysnative\cmd.exe. What potential risks or incompatibil...

Re: App Paths problem

Hi mdruiter, I don't think so, but that was my guess at first also. But for one, values in App Paths are shared between subsystems since Win 7 (and this happens to be a Win 7 system). It used to be redirected, which strongly suggests that these settings are intended to be honored by design. And then...

Caps Lock and drive change hotkeys

Hi, I am not sure whether this is the default setting, but I use SHIFT+drive-letter to switch between drives. However, when Caps Lock is activated, AS treats the letter key without the Shift key pressed as it's hotkey. On old, mechanical typewriters, the caps lock key used to be a retainer for the s...

App Paths problem

On most machines I use Altap Salamander on, I usually add an entry under the the App Path registry key like thus: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\salamand.exe] @="C:\\Program Files\\Altap Salamander\\salamand.exe" "Path"="C:\\Program Files\\Altap Salamander\\T...
