xplorer2 Lite: Icon Overlays and Context Menus Not Working

📅 2010-Aug-17 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 🏷️ xplorer2 ⬩ 📚 Archive

xplorer2 Lite is a fantastic 2-pane file manager that I use on Windows. After moving to Windows 7, I noticed that xplorer2 Lite was not displaying the icon overlays applied by Explorer extensions like TortoiseSVN and TortoiseHg. Also, their right-click context menus were not displayed on right-clicking files or folders in xplorer2 Lite.

The problem is that I was using xplorer2 Lite, a 32-bit program on 64-bit Windows. So, it cannot display the icon overlays or context menus of 64-bit Windows Explorer. Until a 64-bit version of xplorer2 Lite is released, there seems to be no solution to this problem.

Tried with: xplorer2 Lite
