Hi,

Trying to setup a pure x64 TotalCommander environment for test purposes, I found a small cosmetic bug, which does not affect functionality.

So, I've set up a pure x64 TC with few plugins to test TC's usability in a recovery environment (ie: WinPE). Everything works fine, TC and plugins except for one small cosmetic bug.

In "WinCMD.ini" section "[FileSystemPlugins]", every plugin is declared as :

Code:

[FileSystemPlugins]
somepluginname=%COMMANDER_PATH%\plugins\someplugin.wfx


As this is a pure x64 environment, only the *.wfx64 files are present (and their related DLLs/files where applicable)

When you open "Network Neighborhood", none of the plugins have their respective icon, only a default yellow folder icon.

They all work perfectly though! So I think, TC just doesn't try to open "*.wfx64" to fetch the icon when "*.wfx" is not available as a file.

Note: If I manually modify "WinCMD.ini" to change the FS plugins section filenames to "*.wfx64", then the icons are showing again after TC's restarted.

Confirmed
If remove the .wfx file from the plugins folder then TC x64 doesn't show the plugin's icon in Network Neighborhood, even though I can see that the same icons are embedded in the .wfx64 file

Try changing the line
[FileSystemPlugins]
somepluginname=%COMMANDER_PATH%\plugins\someplugin.wfx
to
[FileSystemPlugins]
somepluginname=%COMMANDER_PATH%\plugins\someplugin.wfx64

That works, but is not very practical, userfriendly or obvious.

If the user wants to save space (portable TC), he would like to delete all his 32bit plugin files if he is only using 64bit TC - then it is not very smart, or what you would expect, when the icons are not shown for the filesystem plugins.

(this statement also applies to female TC-users)

I don't expect TC to look for a *.wfx64 file if the path points to a *.wfx file. I've been using paths to *.wfx64 files for many years now, primarily because I separate TC 32 bit from TC 64 bit (which is a PITA at times).

However, I think it's inconsistent that the plugins work fine and only the icons are missing when a path to *.wfx is specified in TC 64 bit.

So do I - use separate 32-and 64 bit TC.

But when installing mixed 32- and 64bit plugins (which are the most, nowadays) in TC x64 - TC itself uses .wfx in the path and not .wfx64. And where it is easy to delete the files you don't need for your TC's bitness, it is more cumbersome to edit the path in the inifile.

That was the point I was trying to express.

Confirmed fixed in TC 9.11rc1 x64 Smile

I havent tried it for .uwfx64, since I don't have any plugin with that extension.

There is no uwfx64 since there is no need for ANSI versions of 64-bit plugins.

I think this can be moved to "TC Fixed bugs".
