URGENT!!!

My Windows 7 just auto-updated and now during the startup of the patch there's a message saying:

Unknown Explorer version, can't apply patch.

The patch doesn't work anymore. Please, help!

Did you try the new version (from a day or two ago)?

Yes, It works great. Thanks.
Anyone who has the problem just re-download the program from the first post.

p.s. That is until Microsoft finds out and puts a stop to it in their next update.



I really hate Microsoft !!!
Bad enough they steal the idea of windows from apple.... they could at least steal the reliability also.

hehe, to be fair that it stops working is just a side effect of them updating explorer for other fixes

Stop dissing Windows.

Windows 7 is far superior to OSX. We've been fighting OSX to try to get a new printer working for days.

On the other hand, my Windows 7 x64 workstation is rock solid stable. This level of stability has never been achieved in the first months of OS release for prior versions of Windows.

No disrespect to Tweaker, but if Microsoft fixes Explorer to properly manage its own Windows I think we can all breathe a sigh of relief. For now, Tweaker's workarounds are the next best thing to sliced bread!

Windblows 7
 
 
Does not work with version 7100

Hi Tweaker,

I get "Unknown Explorer Version Cannot apply patch" dialog error message when I run this on

Build 7100 Windows 7 32 Bit.

Do you have a version of your app matching to this version of windblows?

Cheers,

Darren

I'm afraid pre-release builds are not in the books. I didn't run any builds prior to 7600, so unfortunately I don't have any old version of the app laying around, sorry.

Let's see where will I start.
1. Windows 7 Freezes and I have to reboot at least every other day.
2. About every 4th to 20th download I get it saying I don't have permission to do that. then when I try it again it says do I want to overwrite the file. (what windows does is write a dummy file with 0 bites.)
3. Windows doesn't remember each folders size, so I have to use a program called "ShellFolderFixSetup.exe" to fix it.
4. After Highlighting and deleting a folder it remains there till I reboot then it's gone.

I would continue but my fingers are getting tired.

My windows xp was more reliable then windows 7.

The only advantage windows 7 has over xp that I found, is it remembers my shared hard drives after I remove then and put them back in again. I Have about 20 1.5TB hard drives that I swap using kingwin mobile racks. In windows xp if I boot up and then put in my Movie 01 drive and turn it on it won't show it shared anymore. So every time I put in a drive I have to set it to share all the time. ( I stream to my tv in another room using popcorn hour) In windows 7 I don't have to do that. It will remember, so all I have to do is put drive in and turn it on.

And by the way if it wasn't for apple, there wouldn't be windows, because Gates wouldn't be able to get the idea himself.
Zune idea from apple
Microsoft word from Wordperfect
and so on, and so on...

and here's a article about it also Good Riddance to Bill Gates! - Steal, Embrace, Extend, and Extinguish - Opinions by ExtremeTech


And I can't stand that if you buy a computer (I build mine myself for this reason) it has to have microsoft garbage on it pre-installed. (have to pay for it, even if you don't want it.)

This debate has been had over and over again, and I won't bother continuing it further.

If your Windows system is unstable it's your fault. Tweaker has worked around a shortcoming that I suspect will be fixed in a future patch or service pack.
