[SOLVED] Explorer Shell Integration present but doesn't function

Post by Bats586 »

Hi,

I'm using the latest version of Xrecode64 on W10 64 bit - 1.102.

Shell integration is present - I can see, edit and create new menus (witihin xrecode) for windows explorer.

Only problem is that nothing happens when I select the menu options in explorer, xrecode doesn't start or load the files (if already running).
I have disabled and re-enabled shell integration and un-installed and re-installed xrecode. xrecide opens if I double click on a file.

(Xrecode is set to run with admin privileges)

It has worked at some point in the past for me, but I don't know how long ago that was.

Grateful for any suggestions

Thanks

Have you tried to run it in non admin mode? Program does not require admin rights.

Hi,

Thanks - that worked. Seems strange that having admin permissions stops it :)

(i didn't give it admin rights, it was set in properties after install - maybe inherited from an older installation?)

Cheers

Great. What was happening was that shell extension (running in explorer as a normal program) was trying to send message to program (running as admin) and that does not work in Windows, because of the security.
