This bug appears after installing AD Version 2.5.158. It remains after reinstalling AD Version 2.4. and also after installing AD Version 2.6.168
Who can help me?
Would it help?
But it seems to me that AD sometimes stops working, possibly due to my laptop going into hibernation(?).
So far, restarting AD or toggling the "Use new caption button style" feature off and on, will make it show up in Office 2007 file dialogs again.
I examined the code and looks like it should not do such effect (changing the style to old and back).
Can I ask you to make a test - when it stops working, open the Properties dialog and click OK without changing anything there. Would this restore AutoDialogs working?
Yes, opening Preferences and clicking OK makes the AD icon show itself where it previously failed to do so.
I haven't found a pattern as to when it works and when it doesn't. It seems a bit random, i.e. it can show up in one dialog window, yet fail to show in another.
Sometimes, but not always, it shows itself if I click in the header area where it should be located.
I'll try your test, the next time it happens. Which will probably be pretty soon, unfortunately.
Please let me know if it fixes the issue after hibernation. Thank you!
I'll test it and report back.
The new version seems to have solved the problem completely.
I'll get back to you, should it resurface.
I've been running AD 2.6.168 SR1 under two licences - one on my desktop (WinXP SP3) and the other on my netbook (Win7 Starter). The desktop version works fine in all environments. But on my netbook I have similar problems to others -- the caption button not appearing, or only appearing after I change AD's properties in some way. And the "recently used" menu isn't always being updated with new folders.
I've installed 2.6.171 SR2 on the netbook, biut it doesn't seem to solve the problem. AD doesn't work at all in MS Office 2007 applications, and only erratically in others.
Have you released any bug-fixes for these issues?
I have the 32-bit version of Win7 Starter.
I am looking for Windows 7 Starter edition, but no such system is available for me so far to test.
I presume that Win7 Starter is an OEM-only version for netbooks. Can you find someone who has a netbook with that OS on it? Sorry I can't help further...
I will ask my friends for such netbook.
