Re: V Hangs During Startup in Windows 8.1

I want to make it clear that this issue is strictly related to Windows 8.1

OK. I will look into it. I may send you a diagnostic version if I don't get anywhere.

Please select Send Error Report from the Help menu and send me any V.log files - they may contain some clues.

Re: V Hangs During Startup in Windows 8.1

Thanks for all the details - I have a few more questions:

What do you mean by hangs?

Can you move or resize the V window?
Does the V main menu work?
Does the Windows Task Manager show that V is not responding?
Are you running the 32 or 64 bit version of V?

Re: V Hangs During Startup in Windows 8.1

Under some circumstance (that I can't reliably reproduce), V starts to load, then goes into a loop while searching for system drive devices. In your screenshot, what are the drives that do not have a name next to them? Are they local drives? Are they mapped network drives? If possible, please post ...

Re: DST, FFT, etc.

OK, I tested the DST question by running a backup. Nothing copied on the second run, indicating that VBackup is DST aware. Nice. I never considered the DST situation. The reason that it works is because I use the Uniiversal Time (UTC ) for comparison instead of the local file time. Also, what about...

Re: replacing (ms) explorer

but if a registry setting. would the change then be ok? I am sure there is more involved than just changing a registry entry. There is no Microsoft approved method of replacing explorer.exe Back in the days of Windows 95 it would have been much easier to produce a reliable hack to replace explorer....

Re: replacing (ms) explorer

a similar app to fileviewer, powerdesk from vcom.com has an option to "replace" the system explorer (explorer.exe) explorer.exe is much more than just a file manager - it handles many other Windows functions (like the Desktop). Just use the Task Manager to kill explorer.exe and see what h...

Re: V doesn't show up in Programs and Features

crud, as I think about it more, querying current_user won't work since the logged on user won't necessarily be the user who installed V. You can tell if V has been installed by the existence in the Registry of HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Prineas\FileViewer . However, I am not sure if it is possible ...

Re: V doesn't show up in Programs and Features

when I install V, I do usually install it for all users, but it still appears to only show up in Programs and Users under my account and not anyone elses. Yes, this is done deliberately.I do not think that you would want any user to be able to uninstall the software. Is there any way to correct thi...
