OK. Let me know if anything acts weird. If AHK_L Unicode is this easy then I may port more hotkey things I did in AutoIt3 over to it.

Home Folder 2.1 I broke out a separate program, HomeFolder_IconInst.exe, to extract the Tray Menu Icons for Home Folder. This makes HomeFolder.exe a bit smaller sitting in the tray.  When HomeFolder.exe starts it looks in the folder it is in, for the necessary icons. If any are missing, it runs HomeFolder_IconInst.exe to self extract them.

Please download latest, 2.11.  I fixed a bug with Tray Menu Icon handling. Now if the program cannot restore missing tray icons, it does not attempt to load them in the tray menu.

I'm not sure what you mean. Folders open but show no contents?

If the correct folder opens and doesn't show anything inside I don't know what I can do.  The program calls Run built-in function with the folder path. It's the system that opens the folder.

If it's something else please clarify.

edit: I compiled another copy that calls ShellExecuteA or ShellExecuteW depending on unicode. Please try it:

It should have been fixed.  Try the latest download. I also changed the folder open to use the ShellExecute system call and display the error if it fails. I just uploaded.

Version 2.2

HomeFolder_IconInst.exe is supposed to be in the same folder as HomeFolder.exe.  That's what contains the icons. However, the new version should not try to load the icons if it cannot run HomeFolder_IconInst.exe and any of the icons are missing. It should just show the Tray Menu plain.

No.
Things goes worse
Now with an additional window : No se puede encontrar el módulo especificado.
And continues the alternation with o without legends in the home folder.

I have no way to test it. Looks like it's not for you.

Same thing happens on my system, but I'm using Win7.  What he's doing is trying to hit Shift+NumPadSub from an Explorer window and then he's getting the message:
---------------------------
HomeFolder
---------------------------
Could not determine Home Path of Active Window!
---------------------------
OK   
---------------------------


(But in spanish).  HomeFolder then closes. I tried running it as administrator as well.

Try this one

This is why I didn't want to open Unicode can of worms. I only have English language Windows for testing. So I'm afraid if this doesn't do it, there's nothing I can do.

Also if you are running a 64 bit version of Windows, Explorer will be located in a Folder that's shielded by redirection from 32 bit programs.  HomeFolder is 32 bit and will be run under SysWow64 emulator.

I'm sorry but these programs are written "for my own use" and shared with those who can use them. A bug or something fixable I will try to correct it. But that doesn't include purchasing multiple language copies of Windows and installing them to support give-away utilities. It's beyond my capacity.

edit: I just tried it on a 64 bit system. I get the same error. But it works when used on a window from a 32 bit program. I should add code to screen out Explorer windows. There's really no point in going to the "home folder" of an explorer window anyway.

Sorry about the Unicode thing.  But I'm lucky if I can eat to the end of each month. I'm in no shape to buy software.

Since I have nothing to test it on, I repeat, I cannot support Unicode non English Windows systems. I've marked the utility on my site as:

(XP and later : 32 bit English Language Windows only)

HomeFolder 2.3 I added OS 64 bit detection and system language detection to the startup code. If 64 bit OS or Windows has a system language other than US, UK, AUS, or CAN English, the utility terminates.

Sorry I couldn't fix it up for you. I'm glad you like the idea of the program anyway. :)
