Shell Extension on Open-File dialogues?

Post by sirtet » Fri Jul 12, 2013 9:13 am

The shell ext. does not show up in file-open dialogues, eg. Browsers like chrome or Firefox. (On Win 7 64)
I have not used the extension in a while, but i am quite sure, this used to work once. (maybe under XP)

I see that eg. my zip software (7-zip) also does not have an entry in chrome, but eg. eset antivirus does...
So i guess it's a question of how the extension registers itselfes to the system.

Do i remember wrong that this once worked?
Could it be made to work (again)?

Thanks.

If you try to install XnShellEx 32 & 64 bits?

Yes, it works. Thanks a lot!

I had only the 64bit version installed.
After adding the 32bit version too, it works.
Not sure if the 32bit version alone would be enough.

This might be worth a note in the download area?


Thanks again!

If you use 32bits apps, you need the 32bits version of XnShell
