Missing file icons in version 1.5.0.1340a

Post by cata_solo »

The recently released version 1.5.0.1340a has an issue related to the file icons. In the program window, none of the displayed files have the associated icon anymore, they are all the same. I restored version 1.5.0.1339a and solved the issue.

Not confirmed
All icons of any results are still displayed for me.

An image is worth a thousand words. A visual comparison between program windows 1339a versus 1340a. The file icons on the left side are not displayed.

I have been using version 1.5 since November 2022. I download the portable version and replace the existing executable file on the computer. This time replacing it, the issue occurred which is immediately visible.

Hi,
What is shown under menu "Help" - "Troubleshooting Information" under icon_shell_extensions= ?
(I suspect the following: Config: icon_shell_extensions=0)

I cannot confirm the problem either, but you can do the following:
  1. Copy and paste the following into your Everything search box:

    Code: Select all

    /icon_shell_extensions=1
  2. Press ENTER in your Everything search box.
  3. If successful, icon_shell_extensions=1 is shown in the status bar for a few seconds.
  • Copy and paste the following into your Everything search box and the press ENTER:

    Code: Select all

    /restart
icon_shell_extensions

icon_shell_extensions=1, but it must also have the value 0. I personally reported an issue where it was necessary to set this value.

It is not a setting problem. I ran both versions without the Everything-1.5a.ini file, I just put each portable x64 executable in that directory and ran it. Then each executable created its own ini file.

I will continue to use version 1339a if the following will generate this issue. I didn't have this problem until now, I just copied the executable from one version to another and didn't do anything else.

Thank you for the issue report cata_solo,

There is a bug in 1340a where base icons are not loading correctly.

I will have a fix available soon.



Everything will load the icon using shell extensions.
Everything will fall back to the base icon if no shell extensions return an icon.
Most of the time, shell extensions will return the same base icon.

It looks like icon shell extensions are not working for you.
Have you set an icon filter?
Please check your Help -> Troubleshooting Information for an active icon filter.

Please try ShellExView to manage your icon shell extensions.

@void - Thank you. I am not using any active icon filter. Actually, I didn't make any changes in the program settings, except setting up the places where I need to be indexed. I replaced the executable every time you launched a new version, but this time by replacing it I immediately saw the issue related to the icons of the files/directories displayed in the window.

With version 1339a everything is fine by default, no issue. No need to use ShellExView.

(Just confirming the issue.
It does not always happen, but it does, sometimes.

Maybe something to do with, LoadIconW ?)

@cata_solo thanks for the information.
There's still something odd going on here, Everything is not loading icons by filename for you, only icons by extension (which is broken in 1340a)
If you search for .ico do you see unique icons for each file?


Maybe something to do with, LoadIconW ?)
Everything uses SHGetFileInfo
Everything will load the icon by extension and by full path and filename.

It is possible for a filename from an offline file to be passed to SHGetFileInfo.
You'll only see the default icon in 1340a until SHGetFileInfo timeouts. (generally 1 minute)

I was going to post a new thread for a similar issue but it's probably related to this one. In the latest version, the icons do load for me, but unlike previous versions they "load on the fly" so to speak. In other words, scrolling down a long list of files the icons show the generic icon until they populate with the correct icon for that extension. Scrolling up and down exhibits the same behavior, generic icons being replaced with the correct ones. In previous versions the correct icons show up from the start and there is no constant loading of icons. I'm assuming the upcoming fix should revert this behavior as well.

I'm having the same issue. I think it started with latest version. Version 1.5.0.1340a (x64)
No file icons for .exe files and many other file types.

Additional info:

Code: Select all

Config:	icon_shell_extensions=0
After doing what @tuska suggested - switching the above command to =1, icons appeared for exe files.
