Hello FreeCommander users,
I use freeCommander on windows7, everything works properly only one thing if I want to rename a file the popup window disappears behind the main screen.
So I can not continue with the operation, Can anyone help me with this problem.

I have the same problem. The "child" window that comes up for a Rename, when Rename is chosen from the Context menu, is hidden behind the main window. This problem started with 2009.02b. I have Windows 7 64-bit if that makes a difference.

I would have posted this in the bug forum but saw this post already in General.

Try to use rename without dialog: Extras->Settings->Confirmations: Use dialog window for rename.

Yes, disabling the dialog does work around the issue of the dialog window getting hidden behind the main window.

I've got a problem like this, with no workaround.
I use FreeCommander when doing big merges (programmer). TFS integration is great. But when i check out files, the popup also disappears on the background. (and other actions to, like adding or removing files from tfs.)
This is not optimal, since i sometimes forget i need to press OK for the action to have effect, or even if i remember i need to get the freecommander minimized to look foor the popup.

Mentioned workaround does not apply here.
