Exception Error Message When Copying File or Folder Name

Post by Edson Luiz Branco »

Every time I use the 'Copy Location/File Name to Clipboard' feature for any of the 3 options (folder = CTRL+F6, file = SHIFT+F6, or both = F6), the following unwanted message box appears:
Duplicate Cleaner 5

Error copying file name: OpenClipboard failed (HRESULT exception: 0x800401D0 (CLIPBRD_E_CANT_OPEN))
Despite the annoyance of the message and having to click OK button, the name is correctly copied to the Clipboard.
Any solutions?

It looks like there is a Windows issue where the Clipboard can sometime be locked by another process. I'll see if can get this fixed for the next update.

(Just confirming the issue, as I've seen it too.

Code: Select all

Error copying file name: OpenClipboard Failed (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800401D0 (CLIPBRD_E_CANT_OPEN))
that's in group/detail view
detail view & thumb view, look to work
actually, you may hit the error elsewhere too, & /sometimes/ it does work in group/detail view)
