Deployment

If I copy a far manager installation (via xcopy, etc.), including the profile an all settings, to another machine and call it there for the first time, I had to manually dimension the console windows and font type. Is there any easy way to automate this? Ok, I could write e.g. a little PowerBASIC co...

Re: External programs won't start

Just found the reason. Some rules in my pctools firewall (which I have, like FAR, for years) are blocking some activities from far without ever displaying a message, so I didn't ever notice this change in behaviour. After allowing the actions again, FAR works fine. Thanks all for your kind support.

Re: External programs won't start

The key is there, but the value is empty. On both PCs. On one, it works, on tbe other not. Just created a new installation, from archiv without any plugins and modifications, on the faulty PC. With this new installation, I don't see the problem. So the problem is likely somewhere within my far insta...

Re: External programs won't start

echo %path% won't work, either. Can someone tell a possible reason, why those envvars won't show up with echo? All the envvars are present in my system and all other programs work...

Re: External programs won't start

Typing "set" from far command line shows the environment table, and comspec is there. But typing echo %comspec% gives nothing. With build 3249, everything works fine. But you are right, there must be some special condition at my home pc, since I'v upgraded right now here at work to 3258, and everyth...

Re: External programs won't start

At this moment, I'm not sitting at my pc at home, but I'm pretty sure that's the same there:

Code: Select all

d:\Home\Hoffmann>echo %comspec%
C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe

External programs won't start

Since build 3258 (not sure, though), files won't get started by their associated external programs (setting "Use windows registered types"). After hitting <Enter>, the filename appears on the command line, but nothing happens. Tested for *.pdf, *.jpg, *.htm and others. Calling far with /P won't help.

Realtime update of file panel while copying

Don't know if this is already on request, but it would be good if the panel colours would be updated in realtime while copying/moving etc., so the colour of the marked files would change back to normal colour, if the file was already operated on, not only after closing the progress dialog. Another o...

WinSCP Plugin Usage

It wasn't possible to connect to a certain host using the WinSCP plugin without first configuring the connection from within FAR via dialogs (F4, etc.). Sometimes, it's not possible to have such a correctly preconfigured FAR environment at every computer from where you have to administer many hosts,...
