TC 9.22a
Win10Prof(32)

I tried to install this plugin but get the error messages above. Missing dll? Workaround doesn't help.
What to do?

Thanx
Wolfgang

Extract the plugin archive, delete filetime_delta.uwdx and try to install it again via TC's settings dialog. The *.uwdx file doesn't export any functions, thus rendering it useless for TC.

PS: I got a plugin crash in TC 9.22 (x86) when I tried to install this plugin and after that the "usual" DLLs are missing message was shown. TC 8.x didn't show a crash but instead said it's an invalid plugin (which is correct because of the bug mentioned above).

Try to use ReDate or another addon/plugin
Or maybe try to set another timezone…

Thanks. That helped to get the plugin installed in TC 9.22a 32-bit.

I could see it in the Change Attributes dialog, however it displays the "write time delta" twice and subsequently does not work in changing the file time. Image: https://tbeu.de/forum/filetime_delta.png

I fixed the typo and also repacked the plugin fixing the naming/DLL issue. You can download it from filetime_delta_1.3.zip. This way installation and usage in both TC 9.22a 32-bit and 64-bit worked for me.

I managed now to install the plugin, however, it doesn't work...

I wanted to change a picture date (in the TC-standardview) according to the readme file to one hour later, but it shows still the same timestamp as before...

What am I doing wrong?

...I think I found it myself...
When I choose "write time delta (german "Änderungszeit", the second entry), the timestamp will be corrected as desired.

There seems to be a "name conflict"...

By now I thougt in the standard window (long) shows the creation time (german: "Erstellzeit"), but obviously it seems to be the write time / change time... (german: "Änderungszeit").

Maybe Mr. Ghisler can give a comment...

By default, the write time (or change time) of files is shown. This has always been the case, in Windows/Explorer and TC. To see the creation time, you have to create a custom columns view.

This has always been the case, in Windows/Explorer and TC.
I didn't know that, as in the headline there stands only "Datum" resp. "Date" and I thougt it's the creation time. I never thought about it if it's creation- or change time in Windows-explorer...

Maybe it were a good idea to change the headline in TC from "Date" to "Change Date" resp. "Aend.-Datum" in one of the next versions to clarify which date it is... There is enough place as date and time is shown, at least in these two languages...

So in the Content-Plugin the Change Time should be on the first position and creation time on the second...
To see the creation time, you have to create a custom columns view.
I do not want to see a special time, but the time which is relevant for working with it. So I think I'm going to create my custom view for "Change Date" to get reminded which type of date it is... Btw., is it possible to make a custom view as standard...?

In any case,
thanks a lot for all hints.

Yes.

You need the following for this:
1) Custumns Column View -> [=tc.Änderungsdatum.D.M.Y h:m] or [=tc.writedate.D.M.Y h:m]
2) View Mode
3) Auto Switch Mode

1    Custumns Column View
1.1 Titel: Change Date
1.2 [=tc.Änderungsdatum.D.M.Y h:m] or [=tc.writedate.D.M.Y h:m]

2    View Mode
2.1 Titel: Änderungsdatum
2.1 Columns view: Change Date (<-- Name of your saved "Custom columns view")

2.2 <Vorgabe/Default>
2.1 Columns view: Change Date (<-- Name of your saved "Custom columns view")

View Mode and Auto Switch Mode are available since 23.11.16 Release Total Commander 9.0 final (32/64).
View modes can be toggled manually using the Show menu or automatically by custom rules.

View Mode <Vorgabe/Default>:
You should define here what you want to get as a view when this view mode has finished,
especially in the case of a combination with an Auto Switch Mode.

3    Auto Switch Mode
3.1 ☑ Automatically switch view mode on directory change
3.2 Add... Rule: L: With drive letter -> button '>>' e.g. 3 Harddisk/SSD -> File types: 3
3.3 Set this mode: Änderungsdatum (<-- Name of your View Mode and NOT of your "Custom columns view"!)
3.4 Button "Apply", then "OK"
3.5 If you need other options (e.g. USB, network) additionally, then click on the button "More sub-rules" and make your selections.

Important NOTE:
A "View Mode" or a "Custom Colums view" will be preserved as a rule until it is changed to another view
a) manually, e.g. with a self-defined button - e.g. cm_SrcViewModeList NameOfYourViewMode, cm_SrcCustomViewX (X=No. of your "Customs columns view")
b) automatically, in the case of a view mode, if a combination with an "Auto Switch Mode"-rule exists AND
    "Automatically switch view mode on directory change:" is checked
