Cannot see any files though files are there and not using a filter
I'm unable to see any files in most folders, even though I know for SURE that files are there and that I'm not filtering (using *.*).
Although it shouldn't matter, I'm running Vista, with way more than enough RAM. I'm using the latest version of File Renamer Basic (I just downloaded & installed, today).
This isn't a limitation of the Basic program, is it? Why can't I find any files?
Is it possible you're in 'Folder' mode? While in folder mode, you won't see any files, you'll only see the folders listed.

I'm having the exact same problem using version 6.3.0 under Windows 7 32-bit - most of my pictures folders are showing as blank when there are DEFINITELY files in there! Version 6.0.1 worked perfectly in Windows XP so is it some sort of incompatibility with Windows 7?
Okay, let's try to get to the bottom of this (as we cannot reproduce this on our end). Are any of the files hidden, any special permissions, or file extensions on them? Are they in any kind of encrypted folder? Any other information you can think of that might have any bearing, or be in any way out of the ordinary on your computer?
Also, did you try launching File Renamer by right clicking on the File Renamer icon, and clicking 'Run as Administrator'?
Any additional information you give us about the setup or configuration of your computer might be helpful in trying to resolve this.

Thanks for replying.

Haven't tried running as Administrator so will try that next time I boot up Windows 7 (in XP now).
Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit + Windows XP Home SP3 (dual booting)
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black 3.2GHz
Asus M4A88TD-M EVO/USB3 Motherboard
GEIL 4GB DDR3 Black Dragon Memory
ATI Radeon HD 4250
I don't get this problem using the same version of FR in Windows XP.
Sorry about the delay. I've tried running as administrator but still have the same problem.
Please can you investigate.
I have the same problem. It's only some of the files in a folder not showing up. These are text files with no extensions and I am trying to add an extension. I added the "TXT' file extension to about 500 files in the folder but about 200 did not get changed. These 200 are still in the folder but do not show up in Renamer.They show up on Explorer and Xplorer2 and Jarte and everyother prog I have! Except I downloaded another free rename utility from TGRMN Software and the files did not show up in there either. Windows 7 32bit
Never mind! I did a check on the file atributes for the files not showing up and they came up "hidden". I am not sure how they got that way and since I display all files in Explorer they show up fine in most programs.
My files are NOT hidden though so it's still a problem as far as I can see!
I am having the same problem.
I downloaded the last version 6.3.0 , and when i start it. it shows only in a few folders jpg files, the wierd part is... that i have a main folder... with 3 subfolders. all these folders were created on the same time as it was being copied long time back from another hard drive. all thes folders contain jpg files. when i go in the main folder it does show jpg files. when i go in the 1st folder, it also shows jpg files... but when i go into the 2nd and 3rd folder .... it shows empty. i see in the program the scan bar.. .as it is scanning the folder... but it doesnt show the files. i had this in a few other picture folders the same behavior.
but i can nto get to see any other files then jpg. no mp3 or txt or avi or what ever other files.
i tried to reinstall it a few times but no luck.
the files on my drives are not hidden or have special rights.i am running the program in the trail mode. cause as long as its not working i dont want to buy a code.. as that is not a guarantee it wil be working.
is there a sort of command line i can start the program with so that its doing a detailed log ?
I am running my system as administrator. and UAC is disabled. My drives are 1 GB NTFS
I am having win 7 x64 Ultimate Dutch 6.1 build 6700 and its a genuine version. I have the MS latest updates. My system is virus and malware free
My hardware is a i7 940 with 12 Gb memory on an aus pt6 system board.
i hope u able to trigger this problem
- i been playing around since i created this reply and now the program also creating a runtime error 216 at 00002BF4
- i also just found out... after more playing... that it does show files in photo folders.... but only a few. i have a folder of a model... that has 133 files in it but i onle see 13 files in FRN. when i compare file propperties.. i can not find any difference with the ones that do not show up. not in file size or picture size.
