Path forced into Network shortcut names, Action Toolbar icons missing

#1 Post by coyote » 24.01.2018, 15:12

Two minor issues which arose with the new FreeCommander XE 2018 Build 770 32-bit public
on both Win7Pro32bit and Win8Pro32bit

1.

Full-path is now added as a prefix to the names of shortcuts to a Network location, but only in one panel of the 2 I display. (I run a view configured to look like File Manager.)

I've highlighted my 2 Network location shortcuts in both panels in both FC and Window's File Manager (to show that this is a FC behavior) in screenshots you can see at:
https://ibb.co/fZPXeG
https://ibb.co/fLkutb

(Hint: To create a network shortcut, I right-click in Window's File Manager. [I don't know how to create a network shortcut in FC.])

2.

On the https://ibb.co/fZPXeG screenshot, drive icons no longer appear in my Action Toolbar (but they do in FC's right panel).

I fixed issue #2 by removing then re-adding the drive shortcuts.

However, before creating the thread I tried removing, then recreating the Network shortcut, and that did NOT fix issue #1.

Oops, I spoke too soon. While removing then re-adding the drive shortcuts displayed the drive icons, after a reboot they disappeared again on both PC's.

Thank you VERY much, Marek, for fixing issue #1
!

Please note that Issue #2 remains in FreeCommander XE 2018 Build 772 32-bit donor

(As before, removing then re-adding the drive shortcuts displayed the drive icons, but after a reboot they disappeared again on both PC's.)

Thank you VERY much, Marek, for fixing issue #2 with build 773!

Incidentally, when I installed it (on both my PCs) I got a popup warning that the installers version of a file (something like FCIcons.dll) was older than the existing one. Hopefully I chose "No" correctly. I guessed that it was older because I had started FC since the installer was compiled.
