Files Display With No Date

Post by therube » Tue Jan 29, 2013 12:03 am

A number of Files within \Windows\System32 Display With No Date?

Is that just me or a bug?

> .exe \windows\system32

Sort my Date Modified then jump to the bottom (or top, depending on your sort criteria).

And with these files (& directories) you cannot "execute" them or get their Properties ...

Now thinking it is because they are hard links?

A 32-bit application cannot access the system32 folder on a computer that is running a 64-bit version of Windows Server 2003 or of Windows XP. (or later I assume)

A x64 build would fix this, which is in the works..

Oh, WOW, that's right (& odd & confusing & :?).

Like with Flash, you have:

64-bit:
> E:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\NPSWF64_11_5_502_146.dll
&
32-bit:
> E:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\NPSWF32_11_5_502_146.dll


And then you have Sysnative too.


In 64-bit Salamander:

> \Windows\System32 shows 2,764 files.
> \Windows\SysWOW64 shows 2,302 files.

In 34-bit Salamander:

> \Windows\System32 (a link) shows 2,302 files.
> \Windows\SysWOW64 also shows 2,302 files (System32 is SysWOW64)
& finally
> \Windows\Sysnative shows 2,764 files.
(Sysnative does not show at all when viewing from within a 64-bit application.)

(Did I get all that right :roll:?)
