Shell Extension v2.90 crashes Explorer in Win7

Post by rpertusio » Sun Jul 25, 2010 4:32 pm

I recently upgraded the Shell Extension to v2.90, and performing a 'right-click' on some icons causes a crash.

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (32-bit)
XnView Shell Extension: v2.90

How to reproduce:
1) Install XnView Shell Extension v2.90
2) Search in the Start Menu for something (ie.. Paint)
3) Right-click on the search result (icon), and Explorer crashes (in ntdll.dll)

Faulting application name: Explorer.EXE, version: 6.1.7600.16450, time stamp: 0x4aeba271
Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 6.1.7600.16559, time stamp: 0x4ba9b21e
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x00051fe0
Faulting process id: 0x238
Faulting application start time: 0x01cb2c14a6ea05e0
Faulting application path: C:\Windows\Explorer.EXE
Faulting module path: C:\Windows\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll
Report Id: 5b899649-9808-11df-8605-0015c57d921c

It crashes 30% of the time. Even right-clicking on 1 icon will crash it, and the next time it won't crash. No apparent reason.

This is the 1st version that I saw that has the 'Change Icon' menu item. Maybe there is a bug in that?
Uninstalling the Shell Extension resolves the crashing issue.

This is a CLEAN install of Win7. Only a handful of programs were installed.

Yes right. If you remove the 'File icon' in Options, no more crash....
