    right click, program doesnt open. please help.

    When i try to encode files with right click, the program doesnt open. previously i would select x number of files, right click convert to.. and the program would ask me which format. now the program doesnt even initiate. i need to use the start menu, which proves to be very inconvienant. i have completely uninstalled, and reinstalled several times, i just cant seem to figure out a fix. if anyone knows how to help, please let me know. ive been a loyal dMC user for quite some time, but now running win2k im recieving this problem. im win2k pro, with 512 ram, so it isnt a memory issue. thank you for your help.

    Run dMC Configuration (it's one of the programs that comes with dMC). At the bottom of the screen you'll see Windows Shell Integration. This is where you let Explorer right-click do its job. You may want to check all the options there.

    I have installed the latest beta version, and i have toggled all the options in the configure dmc panel, but the program still doesnt open properly... any other suggestions? I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times, and I just can't seem to fix this bug... Also, with the beta version, I'm not getting the error "GetPopupInfo.exe Not Found" when i select an audio file, or hover. it no longer tells me te filename or the artist, etc. i think ive caused more harm than good.

    In Windows Explorer you must also enable pop-up information in Tools > Folder Options >View > Show pop-up description .... (last item to be checked). Make sure you also press the buttom Like current folder so that applies to all your folders.

    I checked my folder settings, and it was already set to show popup info. i unchecked it and rechecked it to make sure, but it is still lacking the .exe file. any other suggestions? thank you for your help.

    Make sure the account you are installing onto has 'administrator' rights.

    Re: right click, program doesnt open. please help.

    First, have you tried the ideas outlined in the dMC Support section of this site here:
    http://www.dbpoweramp.com/dmc-support.htm

    Second, we did have a user who had a similar problem which turned out (last we heard) to be caused by another program which appeared to be caused by another program. You might want to review this thread here:
    http://forum.dbpoweramp.com/showthread.php?t=5143

    Since it is likely to be way too convenient that you have exactly the same program on your computer let me ask you to think about the following:
    When was the last time you remember having had this feature work for you, when was the first time you remember this feature not working and what happened in between?

    If one of the first two sources work for you, pleasae let us know. If not, perhaps you can furnish some of the details asked for in the third paragraph.

    Best wishes,
    Bill Mikkelsen
