the new function to extract a file to desktop (when extracting attachments) is great, but it simply does not work unter x64 systems...please remove or fix...

...please remove ...

Like in "Since I cannot have it working on my stoopid fast 64 bit machine, it's not fair the other guys with a slower 32 bit machine should have it"?

Ahhh, come on...when adding such a feature to a "stable" release it should work...

As i already talked to psc about it and he knows of the problem and has no idea why it is not working this can not be a permanent situation...

If it can not be fixed it should be removed...at least until it can be fixed..

Or if you wish add a detection, that it is not displayed on x64 systems...i do not care, but (new) users dislike not working functions...

That's EXACTLY the whole point. :exclamation:

You NEVER ADD ANYTHING and definitely NOT a new function to a stable.

Or if you wish add a detection, that it is not displayed on x64 systems...i do not care, but (new) users dislike not working functions...


If it were for me :cheers:, I would add a detection routine for the running 64 bit OS, if detection returns true, a hand would come out of the screen and slap the user in the face, with a voice message like:

Don't even THINK of fiddling with this on a 64 bit OS!


I do like aggressive user interfaces. :exclamation:

Sometimes it does not work under x86 either.

In the registry's path to desktop there sometimes is a %Userprofile% environment variable, which in the latest published version of WB is not yet resolved.

It is fixed for me here.
And as we do not have SPs or revisions for the stable version any more, youll get it with the next stable version 082

RegReadInternal('HKEY_CURRENT_USER', 'Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders', 'Desktop', S);

  If AnsiPos('%USERPROFILE%', s) > 0 then

  begin

	r := GetEnvironmentVariable('userprofile');

	s := AnsiReplaceText(s, '%USERPROFILE%', r);

  end;
