Corrupt Columns in Namespace Extension's Details Shell View in Windows Explorer RRS feed

  • Question

  • When viewing folders which are part of my namespace extension, in the details view of windows explorer, some of the columns are corrupted. The value of the sub-item is set to the file's name (the default for GetDetailsOf and GetDetailEx). Sometime when I right click on the column titles row and select to show another column category, Explorer will crash.

    This issue only occurs in some folder's details view, and only on some computers. Sometimes a fresh install of the plug-in will correct the issue and other times it does not.

    When I sort the files by "Updated", they sort into the correct order, so I know the files are storing the correct information, its just not being displayed.

  • Hi ccdaIton,

    The shell programming forum is at http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/windowsuidevelopment/threads

    You'd better post a new thread in that forum.
