Altap Salamander 3.08 wont start

Post by Dirian3025 » 11 Jun 2019, 19:41

Hello,

since today for no reason at all I cant start Salamander no error message no nothing windows task manager shows that it's starting and then close it in an instand. It worked before for months.
Win10 Home
Maybe somebody has a clue what's going on.

Thx Dirian

There are 2 possibilities:
a) corrupted configuration store (not very likely)
b) a broken shell extension - most likely

Did you install some software which adds own item to the context menu? (right mouse click)
Download https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shexview.html from Nir Sofer, run it and check for non microsoft shell extensions.
You can temporary disable them here and try to run Salamander.

No that's not it only thing I did I can remember is running ccleaner with easy clean for the first time normally I do it with custom clean and windows updates . I believe maybe ccleaner did something with its auto mode.
I tried reinstalling salamander x86 x84 other drive same problem I get the installer and the the screen for registration and thats it wont start or anything.

Ok then,
run WhatIsHang from Nirsoft https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/what_is_hang.html
then start Salamader and when it hangs, switch to WhatIsHang and hit F9 to get a snapshot.

WhatIsHang does not even show salamander refresh does not do anything either.
Strange thing is after I clicked serveral times to start salamander it shows the logo for like 100ms and then if I try to start chrome it wont show any websites...

I must say very strange problem here I tried to get a closer look with systemexplorer as alternative task manager he just shows salamander with undergroup salmon.exe and closes in an instand.

You can download Altap Salamander 3.08 SDK from https://www.altap.cz/salamander/downloads/sdk/
Unpack it and run bin\vc2008\SDK_x86\salamand.exe
Altap Trace Server window should be displayed during startup, maybe there will be some error in the log.

What icon pack?
And what was the message the SDK gave?
And just what did you do to "fix" things?
WinXP Pro SP3 or Win7 x86 | SS 2.54

This here was the icon pack I was having problems with
https://virtualcustoms.net/showthread.p ... Blue-iPack

the sdk was could not load icons for some folders and something else and since I installed an icon pack my guess was good and a uninstalled it.
