HANG Explorer V1.3.5.531

Post by john.bergman »

I am getting frequent hangs, causing me to have to reboot my computer because I set Explorer to be the Default file manager.

First, I cannot even uninstall this thing because I cannot get it unregistered. Can you please provide me a register script that will remove this from being the default explorer?

Please help me!
John

You could try version 1.4.0.1588 I uploaded on 26th March 2020. It integrates beautifully with Windows 10.
If you decide to uninstall it, all the registry associations as set back to default.
Look further down the posts.

Alex.

I need some help here. I installed 1.4 and still have issues.

double clicking folders still brings up 1.3.5, I cannot seem to find 1.4 installed another, although I see it in the control panel. Installing it leaves 1.3.5 installed and running.

The old 1.3.5.531 version came back and was still installed; how do I manually remove this thing from the registry?

Help!

Hi John,
In answer to your question...
I need some help here. I installed 1.4 and still have issues.

double clicking folders still brings up 1.3.5, I cannot seem to find 1.4 installed another, although I see it in the control panel. Installing it leaves 1.3.5 installed and running.

The old 1.3.5.531 version came back and was still installed; how do I manually remove this thing from the registry?
I am making the assumption you are using Windows 10. There are 2 registry entries created.
The first is in "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Folder\shell". To change back to Explorer, change the default key to "explore"
The second is in "HKCU\Software\Explorer++". This has all the settings for Explorer++ which includes layout, bookmarks etc.

This is the installation .INF installation script I created to install Explorer++. I hope this is useful to you.

The installer has two versions of Explorer++, a 32-bit & a 64-bit version.
I used IExpress to create the two versions.
