(SOLVED) TC sending small case drive letter to application

Post by *IceLancer » 2019-01-30, 18:41 UTC

Hey there!
I am heaving a problem. There is application that when used from explorer and do some config in it it will store path's in Upper case drive letter
and it xml file it would write this:
<filename>C:/Users/

Now the problem becomes when that application is started from TC either 32 or 64 either admin or not all behave the same.
above xml file would be wiped, because now it would send lower case drive letter and application would delete entry from above
and u would have to config all over again and this time it would save new config with lower case drive letter
<filename>c:/Users/

and result everything breaks

Is there something that can be done about this? I cant figure out why is app from TC getting lower case drive letter

9.21a TC
This is big problem for me, because i consider TC "extension of my arm on pc"
Problem is because , i mostly use batch files to call application and in that moment it would get explorer behavior and get Upper case drive letter.
And then sometimes i have to start exe manually via TC and everything breaks all xml config gets wiped due to wrong drive case letter

Hi and welcome.

Try INI-Parameters

DrivesExportUpcase=
DrivesShowUpcase=


Note: The location of the ini files can be seen in menu Help - About Total Commander.
If entry doesn't exists, just create them below of [Configuration]

See Help > Configuration and Switches > Ini file Settings





Total Commander 7.50 Public Beta 2

26.04.09 Added: wincmd.ini [Configuration] DrivesShowUpcase=1
shows drives with uppercase drive letters in drive bar, drive dropdown list,
current dir, tabs and to the left of the command line

26.04.09 Added: wincmd.ini [Configuration] DrivesExportUpcase=1
exports paths with uppercase drive letters in functions like Mark - Copy to clipboard with full path,
and when launching programs (current dir, program name)
