Can the IFileIsInUse Interface be used in Salamander?

Post by Andre.Ziegler » 24 May 2011, 00:32

If an app implements the IFileIsInUse Interfacethe Explorer shows which program has the file open if you try to move or delete that open file. Can this be used in Salamander, too like in this competitive tool http://blog.speedproject.de/2007/06/15/ ... verwendet/ ?

You should be aware of Unlocker
(Do a custom setup, as there is some add stuff added. Also some antivirus programs may alert you because of this. The program it self is just fine.)

I don't need unlocker, I use ProcEx to search for the handle and close it. I'm here in the Feature Request forums so I want to request that feature and no workaround.
