I have just purchased the professional version of SFTP today (Aug 27, 2008) and downloaded the newest version.
Before installing I uninstalled the old free version, because it didn't work anymore, then I installed the new version.
I got the following error (screenshots):
I am not able to take any traces or core dumps, because SFTP fails to even start.
I found out somewhere through google that probably (after some Windows XP security update) the Class ID has to be specifically allowed, so most likely the error "sfFTPShellExtension.dll shell extension is disabled or not correctly registered. hr=0x80070005" says that this shell extension is not enabled/allowed in the registry.
I checked in the shell extensions in the registry, but could not see this one. I saw some other SmartFTP extensions on the list, but not this one.
Could you help me, please!!!
I really liked the old SFTP and that's the reason I bought the new one. If it doesn't now work, what's the use paying for it?!?!?
How can I manually enter the correct stuff in the registry to fix this problem? What key and value do I enter and where?
As I said at the beginning, don't ask me to provide traces, because SFTP does not even start.
