XnShell 32bit + 64-bit

Post by QF006 » Sun Oct 02, 2011 1:34 am

Hi, I am running Windows 7 64-bit and am using an Explorer replacement called 'XYPlorer'. This is a 32-bit program while Windows Explorer is 64-bit. As I like the XnShell extension, I installed the 64-bit version first, which works fine in Explorer windows/dialogs, but it did not appear in XYPlorer. Then I also installed the 32-bit version of XnShell. Now I get the extension in XYPlorer, but it has disappeared from Windows Explorer windows/dialogs.

Is there any way to have this working in 32-bit and 64-bit Explorer-type programs at the same time ?

Regards,
Siggy

Thanks. I am not an expert in shell programming :-) so forgive me for this question: would it help if the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the XnViewShellExt.dll had different names ? I guess if I found another shell extension product, lets say for 32-bit and use the XNView shell extension for 64-bit, it would work ?
