Problem with the explorer replacement tweak

Post by *Woailizhi »

Hi,
I've tried replacing windows explorer with Total Commander using these two registry files
File 1:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell]
@="open"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell\open]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell\open\command]
@="c:\\totalcmdTOTALCMD64.EXE /O \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell]
@="open"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\open]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\open\command]
@="C:\\\"Program Files\"\\totalcmd\\TOTALCMD64.EXE" /O \"%1\""

File 2:
Used for the Windows+E combination to open TCMD as well:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{52205fd8-5dfb-447d-801a-d0b52f2e83e1}\shell\opennewwindow\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\totalcmd\\TOTALCMD64.EXE"
"DelegateExecute"=""

It works pretty well except the fact that the following happens, hwen trying to open a folder through the run dialog or the Total Commander command Line:
[Window Title]
C:\Users\nuno6\downloads

[Content]
This file does not have an app associated with it for performing this action. Please install an app or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Apps Settings page.

[OK]
What did I break?

With best regards,
Nuno.

Your file 1 contains to much \ and is wrong formatted for Directories.
Here my example which works without any problems

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
 
 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell]
 @="open"
 
 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell\open]
 
 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell\open\command]
 @="c:\\tools\\wincmd\\TOTALCMD64.EXE /O \"%1\""
 
 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell]
 @="open"
 
 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\open]
 
 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\open\command]
 @="c:\\tools\\wincmd\\TOTALCMD64.EXE /O \"%1\""
Windows 10 Home x64 Version 21H1 (OS Build 19043.1055)
TC 10.00 x64 / x86
