NexPlorer is a Finder like program that can be used either separatly or as an Explorer replacement

Making shortcuts can never be easier. Just drag a directory from the folder view and drop onto the shortcut box. A dialog box will pop up to ask the shortcut name and an icon file to use for the shortcut. If you don’t assign an icon file, the icon that is assigned by the system will be used. (Not a generic icon, computer icon for my computer, drive icons for drives etc.)

- You can edit a shortcut afterwards just by right-clicking it. The same dialog box pops up. You can also delete or move up and down the shortcuts by right click.

- Not based on a web browser so 3 different view modes are supported. (Right now, icon, detail, thumbnail view. If there are requests I may implement a 3 panel view)

-Skinnable. Not using a custom skin engine, so the skinning is scratchy. It is very much like Felix 8. Probably you can use Felix 8 skins with just a little modifications. The color used for transparency is RGB(0,0,0) (BLACK) . All the buttons and background are skinnable. But you should strictly use the defined sizes for images. Refer to the images supplied.

-Memory efficient and lightweight. I guess the resource usage is the smallest among finder clones. It starts with 8MB and stays below 20MB after using for hours. (It may be different for you so I need your feedback to catch memory leaks.) No 3rd party DLL is needed and the program itself without skin is 200KB.

-Drag-n-Drop, Copy and paste work. The right-click menu is the same pop-up
menu used in the explorer. So you can use almost all the shell features that is installed.

-The splitter position between shortcut box and the folder view is drag adjustable.

- search box works as an address bar in an explorer (If most people think search function is more useful, I will change it in the next release)

Comment by bjarne on 2006-08-31 18:15:31

Couldn’t the search-bar work as both?.
i.e. typed in: full path=adress-bar and single word=search-bar.

Please help! I really want to use this. :]

Comment by bob on 2006-12-07 00:38:21

no application or document in the left column?

Comment by Tuck on 2007-02-06 14:28:02

This application doesn’t show up in ObjectDock.. can you make a fix for that? It’s pretty inconvient

Comment by alabanco on 2007-03-14 18:47:18

Is it possible to make it a bit faster and change icons for shortcuts in left bar?

Comment by wizkidweb on 2007-05-07 01:30:48

The installer is not working for me either. It keeps giving me the error:

The system DLL user32.dll was relocated in memory. The application will not run properly. The relocation occurred because the DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\SHELL32.dll occupied an address range reserved for Windows system DLLs. The vendor supplying the DLL should be contacted for a new DLL.

I just recently installed FlyakiteOSX 3. Would that have anything to do with the error?

Comment by Joseph Schwenker on 2008-03-24 02:59:45

I had the same problem. I don’t know why it happens, but to fix it, go to add remove programs and launch the flyakiteosx uninstaller. Then, under DLLs, select user32.dll, and remove that ONLY. After a reboot everything will work fine.

I really wish that you would emplement the 3 panel view.

thanks in advance,

Does anyone know how to apply that awesome scrollbar effect found in Nexplorer on all of Window’s scrollbars?

Comment by fyton5 on 2007-06-27 15:08:05

:’( i wish i came in a zip file without installer! i dont like to install software and this is just the best finder!

i installed it and copied the programfiles/nexplorer folder and uninstalled it

when i started the prog. only a white box with nothing in it came up… i think it needs dll’s or ocx files :(

Is there any solution for this? Please fix it as soon as possible, I really want to use this! It looks great!

I’ve tried several times to install NeXplorer, but every time I get an error that says user32.dll relocated to memory. C:\WINDOWS\system32\shell32.dll is in a space allocated for Windows system files. Contact vendor for replacement dll. Can you help?

Comment by RyukXD on 2007-07-17 13:57:42

Ive the same problem of LINUXUSER51 what can i do?

Comment by Papaton on 2007-07-31 09:06:01

Guys… ask for that user32.dll /shell 32.dll problem to the Flyakite author… I guess it is all about him!!

Perhaps you installed the big icons’ version and you are running out of memory

How can i use nexplorer as an Explorer replacement?
so that Nexplorer starts when i click an on the desk mounted Usb Drive etc.
Please help!

Comment by Joseph Schwenker on 2008-03-24 03:04:48

I do not recommend the following. Before you do this, back up C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe. Be sure to replace the one that opens to my documents. Check by double-clicking. Rename “NeXPlorer” to “explorer.exe” and put it in the C:\WINDOWS\ folder. I am not responsible for any damage that you or anyone else does to any computer in the process of doing this, or for any side effects because of this.

Comment by Calvin on 2008-06-12 02:59:22

By doing that the taskbar, start menu and IE will be disposed of just like that (except IE 7) (also, the taskbar and start menu are explorer.exe!)
