Error with Some Extensions

At first - I searched for this tool for months. But now, I have a problem:
Set html to "office DSOfile":

Trying to set a comment or a category or a title (...) shows an unexpexted error. I have full access to the file and it seems to be a problem with "html", because pdf is working (in the same directory).


The same error appears with other extensions like "db" for example.

Best Regards

Hi Gerd

This can occur when you've only just added the File Meta Property Handler for a particular extension (using the File Association Manager), because Explorer holds prior state in memory to improve performance.

Please kill all instances of explorer.exe, and reload it (or logoff and on, or reboot) and try again. Let me know what happens!
