When the option to “Add a shortcut menu on Explorer” is enabled, Ctrl-Shift-click on a shortcut on the taskbar opens the file in EmEditor. What should happen is when you Ctrl-Shift-click on a shortcut on the Windows 7 Taskbar, the program runs with elevated access (real administrator)
I’m using 64-bit EmEditor, version 9.14 on 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate. I don’t remember seeing this error before.
I’ve disabled the Explorer shortcut for now, but this really should be fixed…March 3, 2010 at 7:04 pm #8151
I am not exactly sure what you mean. Can you describe the procedure you tried, step by step, please? I really want to reproduce your issue, and fix any bugs you encountered. Thank you.March 4, 2010 at 12:32 pm #8153
Environment is Windows 7, 64-bit, and I’m using the 64-bit version of EmEditor.
1. Click on the Start button, find the “Command Prompt”, right click on it and select “Pin to Taskbar”.
2. Enable the Context Menu shortcut (from Tools > Customize > Shortcut > More Shortcuts > “Add a shortcut to the Context Menu” on Explorer.
3. Press shift and right click on the “Command Prompt” button on the taskbar.
4. Select “Run as Administrator”
5. Instead of the UAC prompt and the execution of the Command Prompt in an elevated mode, EmEditor opens cmd.exe (and asks about Binary ASCII, Binary Hex, encoding etc)
Step 1 is really optional, you can right click on any shortcut and the “Run as Administrator” opens the file in EmEditor instead of running it elevated. When you disable the context menu, everything works properly.March 4, 2010 at 12:37 pm #8154
Shift-Right clicking on a taskbar button that isn’t running and selecting “Run as Administrator” is the same as Ctrl-Shift clicking on that entry.March 4, 2010 at 5:09 pm #8155
I reproduced this issue. It will be fixed in the next minor version. I am very sorry about this bug.
