Same thing. Usually I open FlashFXP to check new versions and download via live update and always get portable intsaller as I am using portable version but today build 1632 came as regular installer.

Bug or feature?

adding files to queue after starting the transfer does not update the taskbar icon percentage (the green bar)

bug or won't fix?

This issue appears to occur only when upgrading from build 1631, You can download build 1632 portable edition using this link http://www.flashfxp.com/?d=252

A change in build 1631 resulted in it sending the wrong info to the update server, I rewrote this code for build 1632; unaware of this issue, I was trying to fix the crashing. The new code does not contain the flaw that existed in 1631. I tested build 1632 and it does not have this problem.

For example;

[R] CWD /*** file name removed *** /[ 28 of 28 files = 100% complete of 1.4GB]
[R] 550 /*** file name removed ***/[ 28 of 28 files = 100% complete of 1.4GB]: File not found..
FlashFXP 4.x and up will re-try failed transfers up to the (user defined amount) and I believe this is what you're seeing. Preferences Dialogs > Transfer > Retry Failed Transfers

I do believe that the proper way to address this special folder is to add it to your skip list.
Set the mask to \[*complete*] and compare to Name of folder

The [ bracket is special in 4.x, so it must be escaped with the \

This should resolve the issue.

It should, how many files are in the queue immediately prior to adding more?

Are you specifically adding files or folders, is it an upload, download, or site to site transfer?

let me explain how i find it.

say, a single 6GB file in the queue, with 3GB already done. now resuming the queue (at 50%), add another 6GB single file into download queue. and the taskbar icon is still at the middle (~50%) but expected to be 25% right?

i just meet the problem occasionally and hasn't done many futher tests. this appears both on build1561(my pc) and build1629(my laptop)

BTW, the 'suspend/hibernate after queue completed' function could display an extra prompt to choose if the function would be reset to 'do nothing' or not when booting up. it's annoying if i select hibernate after downloading hugh file before bed yesterday, and today i boot up and use flashfxp a little and it goes to sleep unexpectly as i totaly forget the hibernate option i set before.

all other shutdown function actually shutdown (and reset) flashfxp. but suspend/hibernate will remain flashfxp there and this could cause confusing.

It only remains active if you set it via the Preferences, as this is the default value that is used on startup (Changing the setting via the preferences doesn't apply to the current session).

To have it apply to the current session only set it via main menu > Session > On Transfer Complete. (This setting is not saved on exit)

switch off 'modern toolbar' option causing flashfxp stop responsing, even kill it and restart.

Code:
flashfxp.ini
[toolbar]
modern=1 <--- This option
back=
button=Classic
Navbutton=Classic
appears on my pc, windows server 2008r2, remote desktop connecting from my laptop, no aero, newly upgraded to 1629 build.

i mean, hibernate / suspend the computer won't close the flashfxp window. thus the session setting will remain to next time i use it. user may forget what they did last time and reuse the current flashfxp window and that cause the problem.

hope you read my poor english

another minor bug.

when use stat-l / list method to list directory, the timezone detecting function didn't kill the second part of the time when comparing remote local time and utc time. the list command doesn't return the second part so the offset become 28747sec(actual) instead of 28800sec(expected) if the target file has a second part of 53sec, i.e. 20110101000053 <=> 01JAN 08:00

Oh I see what you're saying, your right, since FlashFXP doesn't shutdown in those two situations on resuming the OS the user might not remember the last setting, I will make this reset back to "do nothing" after being triggered.

The over-all queue progress percentage shown on the taskbar isn't updated in real-time, it looks like when a file is added to the queue the percentage isn't updated fast enough, it may take up to a minute or more. I will change the way the taskbar progress is updated to ensure that it's updated at least once per second when the percentage changes. Thank you
