Forum restore from backup? :shock:

I'll try to run tests today on photos that I actually took using my Pixel 2 XL.

Now writing a program like ImgChk to serve as a handler for the Programmable column. Calling a PHP interpreter with a script and file properties causes xp2 to crash. Calling a compiled EXE works much better. However, switching to another folder before the Detail pane is finished populating can still crash xp2.

yes, I also discovered there is a bug there, which is fixed already (there's a new version coming up soon).
The workaround for the time being is to avoid using full paths in the SYSTEM() call, since backslashes \ are the root of the problem
Instead, put the executable you want to call in C:\windows or someplace else covered by PATH environmental variable

Wait, backslashes are a problem in the SYSTEM() call?

Forgive me, I'm not trying to be an ass, but ... that is just odd. Especially considering that the backslash character is the basis of all Windows-based path statements....
