Far waits for program execution....

Post by saf2825 » Mon 28 Feb, 2011 14:38

One thing that bothers me is when I'm pressing enter on a registered file type in Far, it will waits until the execution of that program be finished.
and I need to close that program for Far to become available.
I should close Far and run it again to workaround this problem; it's annoying.
Is there any way to run registered file types in far without waiting for the program execution to be finished.
Thanks.

Continue from previous post...
It happens specially when opening a file in an archive.

It happens only when running from archives. Try to click CtrlAltX in console window to detach Far Manager.

Is there any other X button to click except the windows Close (X) button which will closes the Far!!!

X is a button on keyboard. Also you can try CtrlAltTab.

In fact, X is a key, not a button. Keys are pressed, not clicked.

Thank you HaRT your instruction worked.
Actually I'm using x64 version of Far 2.0 and it didn't respond to CtrlAltX or CtrlAltTab by default.
So I tried to create Registry Key and Value as you mentioned...

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\far2\System]
"ConsoleDetachKey"="CtrlX"

Because this key combination respond only when Far is running an external command, there is no need to be Complicated.
So I chose CtrlX
and it worked.
Thank you all.

If you ever start a console-based text editor from within FAR, do not come crying that its Cut key has stopped working.
