I am creating this discussion topic to answer some of the questions I've seen in the reviews. Apparently CodePlex doesn't let me reply to the review comments as-is, so I'll try to do it here.

This is not as functional as the other version I found out there on the web. I think the best functionality of this product was left out. Copy Long UNC Path's on the version from Nicotech 4.0 it has this capability http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enhancements/Ninotech-Path-Copy.shtml or: http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/tools/downloads/pathc400.zip do you think this could be added?

Worked on Vista64 no problems. Nicotech 4 doesn't work on Vista64 SP1. This is better than Copy as Path because I haven't got to put my coffee cup down to hold the shift key whilst right clicking, this increases productivity. Quotes would be nice for single items for putting in the run box. Copy long path gives me e.g. \\MARVIN64\Downloads\Shared\7-Zip4.65.exe, so it looks like UNC is fine.

About the quotes: I thought that you could paste a path with blanks in the Run box and it would still work. What specific use case did you have in mind for this feature?

About UNC paths: yes, it works if you open a share in Windows Explorer and then copy the path. But there are two other use cases for a specific UNC Path plugin:
1. A file on a local drive that is also shared (useful to give the UNC equivalent to someone in an IM or e-mail).
2. A file on a network drive that has been mapped (useful to find out how to find the file when on a computer without the mapped drive)

Thanks and sorry for my bad English but I just finish to install in Windows 7 64 bits and works fine, but when I select many files and copy their names I have got just a line continue of text, would be fine if after each file name a return carriage is append... Thanks again.

I thought that this was already the case. What editor do you use to view the list of files?

I will add a work item for this and will verify this. I do not have Windows 7 but this should not be affected by the OS version.

Just found this utility after realizing Ninotech was no longer there.  I have been a user of PathCopy for many years - glad to see you've taken up the cause.

I'd also like one more option that doesn't seem to be in Copy Copy, that is, "Copy Internet Path", which seems to be the only option that I can use to paste a network drive file path and name (both long) into Outlook XP and 2003.  Even quoted UNC names seem to break in these Outlook versions, but the Copy Internet Path option did the job.  Example representation is like this, file://USAnnnnnnn\users\ccccccc\Email%20Archive\blahblahblahblah.pst.

Thanks in advance.

You know, I had forgotten about that option, but you're right, it is indeed missing. I'll enter a work item for this. Thanks for the suggestion.

Hi,

Any chance to add the ability to define custom copy paths.

In the original Ninotech Path Copy shell extension, there was a Setup menu item. In that menu item, you could define up to 5 custom path copy methods. In addition to specifying the format, you could do a search and replace on the text (with a case-sensitive option), adjust capitalization (Upper case, lower case or no change), adjust slash characters (No change, Change back slashes to forward slashes, or Change forward slashes to back slashes), and optionally place the path to copy within quotation marks.

I've used this for example to adjust the Internet paths created to use forward slashes, in my file:// URL's (which are more proper).

Ideally, you wouldn't be limited to 5 custom path copy methods.

Keep up the good work!

Hi,

I took a look at Ninotech Path Copy, and there are a few other things that are missing, should you wish to add them:

- Short/Long Folder Name

- Short/Long UNC Folder Name (n.b. This isn't in Ninotech Path Copy, but it would nice to have for completeness).

- Short UNC Path

- The ability to specify which Path Copy options are shown in the context menu.

Thanks,

Joel

 I must admit that I do not understand the Folder Name options. It is already possible to copy the name of a folder by using Copy Short/Long File Name... or do you mean copy the name of the parent folder? That seems like a very fringe use... do you have a use case where this is useful?

Likewise, I think that the Short UNC Path option is not necessary. After all, the only reason to use a short path is to support some legacy stuff, which probably won't support UNC anyway. Again, do you have a use case where this would be required?

As for the last suggestion, that's a good idea. Currently, it is possible to choose not to show the full submenu and only show the Copy Long Path option... but more control wouldn't hurt. I was reluctant to introduce an options dialog, seeing as I absolutely hate coding UI code in C++ :P but since I want to add the custom options, I'll have to man up anyway. I'll enter a work item for this.

Hi,

The folder name options would return the name of the (parent) folder in question. If you copy the folder name of a file name called C:\MyStuff\Downloads\newGame.exe, it would return C:\MyStuff\Downloads (obviously adjusted for Short/Long Name and/or UNC Format).

As for the usefulness of it , imagine you're sending an e-mail with the following text:

You can find a copy of the file in the XXXXXX folder.

Now XXXXXX would be the name of the folder you copied using Path Copy Copy.

As for the Short UNC Path option, it's something that Ninotech Path Copy currently supports. As for it's usefulness, it could be useful if you had to hard-code a path in a script or language that doesn't handle file names with embedded spaces well. It wouldn't happen often, but it would be useful for completeness.

Thanks for considering these ideas. Hopefully we'll see these features in a new release soon.

 I'm reluctant to include too many options, if such options are fringe cases. I want to keep the menu as small as possible to avoid clutter - it's already pretty cluttered as it is. For now, I don't think I'll consider the Folder Name and Short UNC Path options... This might change in the future once I put in the options dialog allowing the user to choose which menu item to include.

Thanks for the ideas :-) Feel free to enter work items for anything not supported, I won't delete them, I'll keep them around to see what to do with them.

A new version is coming soon, but since I'm in the middle of moving to a new house, it might take longer than I expected.

 There is. Since the installer is built with Inno Setup, it supports all IS command-line arguments. Complete documentation about those can be found in the Inno Setup help page online:

http://www.jrsoftware.org/ishelp/index.php?topic=setupcmdline

To summarize, /SILENT will disable dialog boxes to configure the installation but will show the progress dialog. /VERYSILENT will disable all UI.
It is possible to combine those with /NORESTART to avoid restarting when files are in-use (which will most likely happen when updating).

After Upgrading to Windows 7 64bit i was searching for this, because the old once works only in 32bit apps like Total Commander.

 You can do that, but there is an easier way: hold down the Shift key while right-clicking and you will see the entire submenu again. Go in the menu and re-select the Show Entire Menu option.

Thanks much for this useful program.  I, like others, would very much appreciate the pathCopy functionality.  Particularly, the ability to define custom copy methods; i.e, search/replace, switch slashes, and insert in quotes.  Another suggestion would be to support hotkeys - it would be fantastic if I could pick a file, and just hit a key to grab the path info!!  

Sorry... off topic, but...  I've always wondered why there is a dll included in the ninotech pathcopy install called "PATHCO64.DLL"?  Kinda suggests 64bit support but I'm not keen on hacking the .inf file to try to get it to work in Windows7 64bit.  My path problems would be solved if I could simply get the ninotech extension to work in Windows7 64bit.  Maybe someone knows?

 The custom copy methods are now entered in the issue tracker. It's going to happen, I'm just not sure when I'll be able to work on it. The hotkey idea is cool too. I'm not sure how to do you though, as this must be handled by a program running in the background I think - I will have to read a bit to see how to do that.

Indeed Ninotech does have what seems to be a 64-bit DLL for their Path Copy, but I could not get it to work on my machine. That's one of the reasons I wanted to write this one.

Was so frustrated with the inability to grab UNC paths, etc. in Windows 7 until I found this. So first, thanks!!! Was glad to see you incorporate internet paths, but unless I am missing something (entirely possible) it does not replace spaces in file paths with %20, etc. to maintain active links in windows. Is this on purpose or am I incorrect? If no to both, would it be possible to add this? Anyway, I have shared the joy of what you already have. Still much appreciated. J

Hi clechasseur,

I used CopyPath in Windows XP, but it is discontinue for win7.

entry user is not understand Short Name, Long name or UNC path.

Thank you :-)

I thought I had posted here before but after revisiting I didn't see my post. Love the program but it's not at the ninotech level just yet. The UNC menu option should be grayed out when there is not a share available. Trust me there is a reason for this feature. Also I would love to have the parent folder copy mentioned early in this thread.

 

Thanks for the product!

Thank you for this extension! I have a minor issue: Loggin in as a different user, i'm unable to get rid of the cascaded submenu. Removing the tickmark has no effect.

I'm sorry, but I'm not sure I understand if you have a request here. Are you suggesting that I add a "preview" feature? How does it work in CopyPath? I've never seen that.

Indeed, the various options can be cryptic for a non-power user. That's why I added the "Show full menu" option. It is true that showing the entire menu is the default, but since it would be hard to know how to bring it back if it was off by default, I think that's a price to pay.

Hmm, that's pretty weird. So just creating a key in HKCU did the trick, without having to add any actual values? Did you have a PathCopyCopy key in your customized "default user" profile?

Hi! I assume you are referring to the "Copy internet path" option. Indeed, this is still broken in that it does not properly escape whitespace. It could also be modified to escape many more characters. The work item is still active; version 3.0 doesn't address it. I am working slowly on a new version. No idea when I will be able to release it yet. It might take a while, I am not really in good shape right now. Watch this space for announcements.

Could you please add the preview feature - for example instead of "Copy Long Name", it would actually display multiple versions of the file, folder names.

For example, when we right click on a file name> Copy path > it would show entries like these and selecting will copy that entry :

readme.text
P:\Users\testuser\Desktop\ARM\readme.text
\myserver\P\Users\testuser\Desktop\ARM\readme.text

Which icon are you referring to? Path Copy Copy has never shown an icon in the contextual menu before the one you're seeing now. :-)

It is not possible to specify your own icon, no; that could be a fun addition. Feel free to add a work item to suggets this.

Currently, the only option available is to show an icon for the submenu. It's also possible to have the icon displayed for the default command (when there is just one command in the main contextual menu), but it must be activated via a hidden option. If you feel comfortable editing the registry, you can navigate to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\clechasseur\PathCopyCopy key and create a DWORD value named UseIconForDefaultPlugin with a value of 1.

Being able to specify an icon per command would be nice. Again, you could add a work item to suggest this. :-)

I have been using PCC for years, and it has been a wonderful convenience!  However, when I recently attempted to update to the current version of the software, I ran into a major issue: PCC needed to turn off my Microsoft Explorer during the installation and was unable to.

At that point, I should have aborted the update process and contacted you.  However, the dialogue box offered me the option of ignoring this problem, which I did, and then when I rebooted my computer after finishing the update, my Explorer did NOT turn back on!

This required remote support from Geek Squad and a safe mode reboot to regain access to my computer -- and I don't even know if the PCC upgrade was successful or not.

I obviously don't want to go through this process again when attempting to update PCC in the future,, so what should I do if Microsoft Explorer cannot be turned off during the update process?

@metta: I'll create a work item for this, since this discussion is a bit cramped. :-)
