AutoDialogs not working under Win7 x64

10/17/2010 07:13 pm
AutoDialogs has been my favorite windows application for a long time. I would not work without it. All the more I miss its support under Win7 whose Explorer and related dialog boxes I find rather unclear and confusing as compared to WinXP. I have already inadvertently deleted files for this reason. AutoDialogs integration into the Win7 (x64) Explorer does not appear to work reliably. There is no entry in the Explorer context menu at all, the shortcuts do not work reliably in all situations and the AutoDialogs caption button does not always react.

In order to recover some of the old clarity I installed the “Classic Shell” by Ivo Beltchev. I do not know whether the problems described are wholly or partially attributable to this shell or whether they show up under the original Win7 shell as well. Please help me to get my beloved AutoDialogs functionality fully back under Win7 x64.

Yes, we are aware of these issues and still looking for solutions under 64-bit Windows. Sorry for this inconvenience, but it is not easy to integrate 32-bit application in 64-bit environment that deep.

You can also use tray icon to choose the folder to navigate to. It will work exactly the same way as the caption button - change folder of the active Explorer or Open/Save window.

Thank you for the advice. The tray icon works great but I would prefer to use shortcuts (Alt+figure). Is there any hope of getting that working pretty soon?

Yes, this seems to hax fixed the issue, atleast from the taskbar icon.
