TortoiseHg shell extension break file dialogs in Wing Python IDE
Created originally on Bitbucket by picoplex
This means that most wing users are uninstalling TortioseHg which is a real shame, because it is great.
I have disabled the icon overlays, but this removes one of the most useful features of tortoisehg.
Please could you see whether the suggested move to the c++ shell extensions might solve this problem (as well as the speed issues)?
Please see below for details of the problem:
From the Wingware website:
- The TortoiseHg shell extension and a few of the demo shell extension COM objects from win32all can cause Wing to crash if they are registered. The crash occurs when the file open, save, and add files to project dialog boxes are used.
TortoiseHg may by removed via the Windows control panel.
The demo extensions may be disabled by using ShellExView (http://www.snapfiles.com/get/shellexview.html) or a similiar program to find and disable them.
They can also be uninstalled by running the .py file with an --unregister argument.
