multi-rename tool permissions under Windows 7

Post by *essenov » 2011-01-26, 08:49 UTC

Renaming a single file via total commander needs to proceed as Administrator.

multi-rename tool do not have the option "run as administrator" and respectively is not able to rename.

Many TC functions are unavailable in write-protected folders. You should start another TC instance with admin rights to use multi-rename tool in such places. E.g. I have a button for such task:

Code: Select all

Command: "%COMMANDER_PATH%\Sudo.exe" "%COMMANDER_PATH%\TOTALCMD.exe"
Parameters: %Z/N %X"%P" "%T"
Hint: Admin: Total Commander
This button opens another TC copy (asks for elevation) with currently opened folders in active and inactive panels.

In TC 7.56a you may use following command instead:

Code: Select all

Command: *"%COMMANDER_PATH%\TOTALCMD.exe"
Parameters: same as above
(asterisk tells to TC that program should be started with administrative rights)
