"Shell extension error on Rev 2.80 to 2.95"
I use the program for quite a while, FF does the job for free, the commercial toolbars that you get at install can be quickly uninstalled afterward and you end-up with a clean very effective multipurpose conversion tool!
Since, at least, rev 2.8 up to my current 2.95 rev, I have a shell extension error in Windows explorer when en I left click in the right pane to get the pulldown menu. The result is a crash of Windows explorer. I use both Windows 7 32b and 64b.
The workaround: I do not use the .dll shell extensions of FormatFactory by renaming the 2 files with a .bad extension! The core conversion program works well and does not require the dll filess to run. The extension provide only nice-to-have but non essential cosmetic features.
I Hope rev3.0 will eventally fix this for good, but I cannot complain to much for the price!
A good conversion program with a shell extension bug and an easy workaround.
