Shell extensions don't work in winxp 64

  • I have recently installed winxp 64-bit on my computer and after installing power archiver I realized that the shell extensions didn’t appear. I checked in the settings and they were turned on and I also tried restarting. Anyways, I browsed here and read a post about Power Archiver coming out with a 64-bit version after Delphi came out in 64-bit (which, it sounded like, wouldn’t be for a long time) and thought that was it. But then I saw a post about winRar which had the exact same problem getting fixed with a registry hack. So, I was wondering, if there is any solution to the shell extensions problem?

    Thanks in advance

    No, there isn’t easy solution, nor any registry hack fixes the problem. We have to rewrite shell extensions using new VC++ and hope we will do this in near future.

  • main problem is windowsxp84 is a rewrite of xp with changes that aren’t compatiable with like programs
