Re: New to XE. Questions on several settings

Thank you very much! A picture's worth 1000 words and that's all I needed to see. Both problems solved. I've now pretty much got it configured as I want, except that I can't figure out what I must have done that suppresses tabs in the Tree viewer. I can click on the title bar for the pane and see al...

New to XE. Questions on several settings

LONGTIME user of FreeCommander 2009.02b. Having a very tough time getting XE set up properly and also getting used to it. Much of the terminology used in Settings is not intuitive (at least for me), adding to my confusion. Two specific problems which are most annoying and therefore most important fo...

Why doesn't RAR file present as a directory, like ZIP?

FreeCommander automatically presents ZIP files as "folders", such that if you select a ZIP file in the Explorer Tree pane its contents will be displayed in the files pane. Why doesn't the same presentation also occur automatically for RAR files, as one would expect it to? Or is it just a s...

Re: Where is "Help" file?

Well, I'll simply say this... I am running Win7 Pro x64, and Help -> Contents works perfectly for me with FreeCommander once I copied the CHM file to the program directory. I haven't actually tested this out on my WinXP Pro x86 system, but I'd be surprised if it didn't work perfectly there as well. ...

Re: Where is "Help" file?

I had the same problem with Vista and Firefox. Works fine now after using the HHReg-utility. Thanks a lot for pointing this out. :) As I described in my earlier reply, all that is required is to simply copy the FreeCommander.CHM file to the c:\Program Files (x86)\FreeCommander program directory. I ...

Re: Where is "Help" file?

Unfortunately it seems not to be that easy. When I download the file, unzip it and open the .chm file, I only get a contents display and an index, but no content. Where is the content? I´m using Win7 64 bit and Firefox as browser. Why aren't you just using HELP within FreeCommander? HELP -> Content...

Re: Where is "Help" file?

Ok... I'm an idiot. I saw the 2-tone blue sentences below and thought they were instructions, not that the darker item in the front of that first line was actually the link to the zip file they were describing. Don't know why it's just not included in the installer along with the other files. Anyway...

Re: Where is "Help" file?

The Help file is in a separate zip file. Not to be rude, but this is no more helpful than the FreeCommander web page itself... which does not provide a download link for the Help file even though it provides instructions on what to do when you get it! The link on the page is for the program install...

Where is "Help" file?

Win7 x64, installed FreeCommander sometime back and it works fine. However when I try to view Help -> Contents I get an error message about Freecommander.chm not being found either in the program directory or in the Users\AppData\Roaming\... directory. The web page for FC seems to say that the Help ...
