PDF Tools will not open or run SOLVED

I have a Windows 10 Pro machine on which PDF Tools will not open or run - the little blue wheel spins for a few seconds and then....nothing. I noticed in Task Manager that an entry for PDF Tools appears, briefly shows as Suspended, and then disappears. Regardless, there is no reason the program shou...

Re: Worst Release Ever (for me, at least)

@Bhikkhu: Thanks for figuring out this issue involves Shell Extensions.

@NjopOlsson: Thank you for suggesting Nirsoft's ShellExView. I downloaded the s/w and used it to disable the shell extensions - worked perfectly!

Hopefully, the team will have this ironed out soon.

Worst Release Ever (for me, at least)

Terrible! I installed Build 312 (I have PDF-XChange PRO) and the Editor now seems to essentially crash Windows Explorer. I'm running Windows 8.1, FWIW. Every time I open a PDF with the Editor, I get a green bar scrolling across Explorer as if it's scanning for God knows what (see attached 17.pdf). T...

Suugestion: Alternative(s) to the standard Editor icon

Yes, this is a bit picky but the standard Editor icon (dark brown background with Pencil) is not all that distinctive; it does not contain the letters "PDF" (as did the viewer) and that dark background sort of blends in to the dark background of my taskbar. It would be nice if users had a few altern...

One suggestion; it might be wise to include this thing in "known issues" (or some other material with high visibility) so users are aware that they might need to actually close Firefox after opening a number of PDFs, as opposed to simply closing the tabs.

Well, at least I can get rid of the multiple instances by closing Firefox itself now (which, of course, I couldn't previously). Regardless, each instance should close when a tab is closed, the same as IE, Opera, et al.
