I will probably buy a license all the same,(lifetime key!), but I am confused that my copy of Listary will not start with Windows; I mark the option, but it doesn't do it. I wonder if there are other features that will turn out to not be working. I have tested the free version a couple of times, but always removed it again because I have a few similar programs  that does what I want  the way I want it. However, Listary is being updated, the others are not.

----
I have of course manually added Listary to (a delayed) Start.

Weird bug, I've never seen this before. Could you please help me run a quick test?

1. Open Listary Options > General, unmark "Start Listary when Windows starts", and click OK.
2. Open Options again, mark "Start Listary when Windows starts" this time and click OK.
3. Open regedit and check if there is a REG_SZ value in "HKEY_CURRENT_USER
\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" named "Listary" pointing to the correct path of Listary executable (something like "C:\Program Files\Listary\Listary.exe")

Thanks for your time, looking forward to your reply.

-done; and there isn't.
I have even added Listary to my security's "Trusted, allow any action".

But as I said, my startup manager is handling it now.

Run to get it, folks!  Take a look at the enthusiastic comments on Bits du Jour.  Also mentioned in several threads on DC.

Thank you Curt. It makes me wonder will Listary suffer the same fate. Hope not. I hate it when a good software discontinued or abandoned. Remembering Onfolio, Musicmatch Jukebox, Encarta, MS Money, Palm OS ....

Hi,

Ok, I'll give it a fly while the discount is there.  I sort of enjoy running up and downhill through the paths in Total Commander, so I hope I do not lose too much path jogging.

The layout of the options is so crisp, that I figger to give it a try.

Steven

You gain the benefits of all that jogging in your File Open dialogs!  Take a look at the Listary site's page Total Commander Integration.

Nice find!  I love tools like this.  I'd like to see how it compares to my current favorite, Direct Folders.

I'm now using both: DF I think is marginally the better product but that might just be because I'm more used to it. Listary is, if anything, even less obtrusive than DF but it has at least one major advantage for me: it'll run portably and the Pro license lets me use it at work in that mode.

I've been using FileBX on my work machine but am under pressure (from the standardisation dweebs) to uninstall it; Listary gives me most of the stuff I use (although I like and will miss FileBX's ability automagically to push a file listing in a dialog into details mode, autosize the columns and sort it for me by date. FBX doesn't work well under anything later than XP and is no longer under development, though.)

Odd: I first tried Listary when PortableApps made a wrapper for it; tried it, couldn't get on with it, gave up. I must not have been persistent enough; it does actually deliver a lot of useful stuff.

@Oblivion; are you using FileBox eXtender version 2.01?
It was updated February 2011 and is working well on my Vista 32-bits
-and is the reason I haven't installed my copy of Listary Pro ;-)

Hm. The version I have on my work (XP) box is that but I suspect from what you say that the version I tried at home and that failed to work as it should may have been older. And if it's as recent as last February, it looks like my impression it had been abandoned may also be wrong.

Hmf. Oh well... :)

-no, you were right. They have said several times that they won't update it.

We no longer support FileBox eXtender. We make both the binary builds and source code available for download here for your convenience, please do not ask us for any support or improvements.

Besides, it has a bug (user must navigate before naming & saving file).

I've used Listary far more than DF, but I think Listary has more features, without their getting in your way.  It's an excellent piece of kit.

There's another that occasionally happens to me: the auto-resize of columns fails miserably and they all end up about half a character wide. I think it's when the filenames it's trying to list are particularly long, but I always sighed, resized manually, forgave it and carried on. :)

I am gradually coming to the same conclusion. I suspect my initial issues with it were to do with the fact that it just doesn't work like FileBX and I wanted it to.
