  • In Folder Compare, autocomplete does not suggest archives?

    I do not remember if I already described this small issue, and what You replied.
    I open Folder Compare.
    I type "C:\abc" and I expect that B.C.4 completes it to "C:\abc.7z", instead archives are not in the list for folders, it lists only true folders.
    Please, if this feature is not already available, can You add it to my wish-list?


    Thank You and regards

    Hello,

    BC4 does autocomplete .7z and .zip paths on local drives. Are you running the latest BC4.x release (4.1.7)?

      Yes, I am using B.C.4.1.7.
      And in the session settings I tried all the three different options for archive handlings, but in Folder Compare it still autocompletes only for true folders.

        Which OS are you running, and would you be able to send in full screen screenshots and your BCSupport.zip to support@scootersoftware.com? Please also include a link back to this forum thread for our reference.

          I attach here two screen shots, in which You can see that I have two archives in the root of "C:\", that starts with "C:\o*", whereas in the auto-complete it suggests only a true folder.
          I will send You a mail with the zip file and the link to here.

          Thank You and regards

            Oh, sorry, this is actually something we are 'pinging' Windows API for a listing. I must have some extra programs that are adding options to this list. Also, at the root C:\ I also am not seeing archives (but do see if a navigate to a different directory). This should mirror the list if you type to auto-complete in Windows Explorer.
