Team Foundation Server icons overlay

#1 Post by UweLm » 12.04.2018, 07:07

Good morning @all,
I've installed Mircosoft "Team Foundation Server Power Tools December 2011" on my PC to access TFS from within Windows Explorer.
At the Windows Explorer files registered in TFS are marked with an icon overlay in front of the file/folder name (I've tried to include a screenshot but Ctrl-C/-V didn't work).
These icons are very helpful to differ between the status of files/folders alike "checked in, checked out, changed, added...
Unfortunately these icons are nor displayed when FreeCommander is used.
Does anybody know if this is possible and how to set that up?

I'm using "FreeCommander XE 2017 Build 740 32-bit public" on "Windows 7 64 professional".
The registry key for the Windows Explorer is "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers" but I haven't found anything comparable for FreeCommander.
I've used the search function here but haven't found anything regarding this problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

Kind regards

P.S. sorry for my poor english - I'm not a native speaker

It may be the 32 bit problem. 32 bit FC version can shows overlay icons only from 32 bit shell extension.
Check if TFS has 32 bit shell overlay handler.
