Some FavesSoft Hotkey programs updated for Windows 7
« on: October 30, 2009, 05:54:20 PM »
FavesSoft Hotkey programs listed below were updated for Windows 7

FolderCache
HomeFolder
Pasty
ReOpen
Selector

It's just a minor update for Windows version number detection.  In Windows 7 a memory optimization may not be called since the version of AutoIt3 used did not have an enumeration for Windows Seven OS.  It's just a reduction of memory working set and a minor optimization at that.  Latest corrected programs can be downloaded from this link:

HomeFolder 1.6 has been updated to avoid redundant Tray Icon double-clicks and tray menu commands without resorting to hiding the icon.  This avoids the unpleasant side effect of icons moving around in the tray.

Hello Miles.
I have been trying HomeFolder under windows xp pro sp3 spanish version.
When I try to shift+minus in the key pad I obtain the folder windows, not the home folder.
I have search the forum for the appropiate posting, but this is the best i found.
Can you help me ?
I don't know why I am obtaining the wrong folder.
Best Regards

P.D. I will revise the version because I tried with a downloaded 02.12.2010

Does this happen on all programs? For example if you click on Firefox or chrome and hit the hotkey, does it open Windows folder or the browser install folder? It should open the folder where the executable that owns the window is located. If this is an Explorer window then it would be the Windows folder.

Please give more details.

It's general.
Over a pdf in a data disk also open the windows system folder
In my system in M: opens M:\Windows
and in second time open the windows folders without legends or without letters of the name of the folders included in the windows folder.
Best Regards
I have assumed that the home folder corresponds to the main folder
That is :
Folder c:\Datos\Subdata\Subfolder\p.pdf is
c:\datos
 :P

Home Folder is meant to open the folder where the executable program that owns the window lives. In other words, if I have EditPadLite.exe editor installed in "C:\Program Files\JGsoft\EditPadLite\" and I hit the hotkey with EditPadLite window active, it will open that folder.

Edit: what may be happening if your case, if the PDF viewer is really a printer driver, it may be installed in the Windows directory.

I am doing something wrong because I obtain the same folder all the times.
I put three screenshots using the combination of shift+minus sign in the numkeypad and obtaining always the opening of the system windows folder : M:\WINDOWS

 :(

This version uses a different technique. Please try it and let me know if it works on your system.

First proof . I executed the program. Apply the hotkeys that appear in the option : About HomeFolder

Control {NUMPADSUB} opens command prompt - Yes
Alt {NUMPADSUB} shows no interaction . I see nothing
Shift {NUMPADSUB} opens M:\windows according to this screenshot.
I observ this version don't need or don't create the file HomeFolder.ini
If I execute shift option alternativately once time I see the names of the folders inside M:\windows, and the next time (closing the window before) no names.
I have applied the above options mantaining selected the main executable HomeFolder as you see in the screenshot, and also over the zip file, with the same results.

edit: Ok, I haven't had any other report like this. Let me work on it a bit and see if I can find anything. It could be privilege setting for an API call OpenProcess().  I'll get back to you.

I don't know what's going on here. I tried recompiling and now it doesn't want to work on my system.  Try New Folder 2 from this page:

http://www.favessoft.com/hotkeys.html

It has the same Home Folder hotkey function.

I think is not possible. I have windows xp, and that script is indicated for Vista and later.
Time to wait and respect the time necessary to depure my problem.
I'll wait for you.

Try right clicking on Home Folder and selecting Run As Administrator. If that doesn't do it, then I have no clue what the issue is. Are you using a Non-English language version of Windows? If so I have no way to support it. You may have to find another tool on Softpedia or another download page.

edit:

btw, the only reason it says "for Vista and Later" for New Folder 2 is because XP already has a New Folder function via pressing F7 if I remember correctly.  Try the home folder function just to see if it works. If it does not, even when run as administrator, then I must assume it's because you're not running an English language flavor of Windows.

I have these requirements posted on all my download pages:

================


Requirements

Windows XP or later (unless otherwise noted.)

Explorer utilities require "Display full path in title bar" enabled in Folder Options.

Taskbar Gap/Work Area utilities require taskbar AutoHide disabled.

Note: Utilities tested on English Language versions of Windows.


I have no way to support Unicode or non-English Windows. Just can't be done.

Just for chuckles try this one I did in AHK_L. It's supposed to have better Unicode support.

The hotkey is Control-F2

It's just a bare bones for test.

With Goldmine goes to the program folder that is in Y: hard drive.
With Firefox goes to M:\Archivos de programa\Mozilla Firefox
With Home folder windows goes to Y:\PORTABLES\Personaliza pc\HomeFolder
With a explorer windows goes to M:\WINDOWS
With Psicrometer chart goes to O:\Mis documentos en O\SOFTWARE PORTABLES\TECNICOS\CartaPsicometrica

Ok. I'll implement using AHK_L. When I upload I'll make a note here.

I've implemented it as a single hotkey.  Default is Shift-NumPadSub to open home folder of active window. Use Edit IniFile command or edit the ini file manually to change the hotkey.

It's been uploaded to the hotkey page. You should delete your ini file or just make an empty folder to avoid any ini settings conflicts/errors.

http://www.favessoft.com/hotkeys.html

I've added icons to the tray menu. It may be a good idea to unzip to an empty folder. Although the icon files are not supposed to overwrite existing files. But if you coincidentally had a file such as Dollar.ico in the same folder, the correct icon would not be shown. So empty folder unzip is best.
