Thank You for your quick answer.
I can not follow your advice though, because I have trouble using even the most basic features of LBC.
At the moment for example I can not even drag a file onto o folder node although I have set the "Accept File Patterns." to *.*
I get an "Access violation at address 0076A26B in module 'LaunchBarCommander.exe'. Read of address 011B1000." on WXP SP3.
Thanks for further help...
