Title: Windows 10 - no Open File/Save dialog [Solved]
Post by: Faiakes on April 24, 2016, 11:03:33 AM
Hi


For some weird reason, no matter which version I use (latest is May 1) I cannot use the Open File function.
I can Drag & Drop a file but once I decide what to edit, it won't save either.
I have tried both .exe and portable versions.

I am on Windows 10 - build 14316.

Can you give more details about your windows 10 64-bit?
- Language of installed windows (standard English or other language?
- de-install avidemux and install again. Do a simple install, not a fancy (installing in some other location, ...)
- admin issues settings for the user that did install?
- ...
All I could think of, I don't have windows.

Are these dialogs missing or just not working?

If its just not working then its anyone's guess as to why the calling function fails.

If avidemux is set as the default program for specific video files will it open these files?
Eg ADM set as default to open .MKV - then double click on an .MKV file and will ADM load it?

Hi
Thanks for the reply


Windows 10, 64bit, build 14328
Language: English
I am Admin
Un/reinstalled (64bit version) but problem persists.
Open File With - It works the same way draging a file works: the file will be loaded but once a clip has been selected, the Save button or menu do nothing.

It may happen if some files from older version of avidemux are still there
The simplest is to remove it completely and reinstall using the installer

You are running as user and did install as this running user? Depending how you install software, parts could end up in none intended places?
Try installing disconnected from network (pull cable) / internet (switch off Wifi) with disabled AV, Anti Virus perhaps blocking some installation?
Don't disable AV whilst connected to network/internet
ps.: recalling memories from ages ago.

Try 3rd May 2016 build: http://www.avidemux.org/nightly/win64/
Title: Re: Windows 10 - No Open File/Save dialog
Post by: AQUAR on May 04, 2016, 09:24:31 AM
Copy all the files from the nightly in a newly created folder.
In that folder - rename avidemux.exe to avidemux_portable.exe.
Then double click on the avidemux_portable.exe to run the program as a portable version.
This way we can check if there are clashes with files from previous install's viz:
if all now works its a clash with older files, if the same issue crops up its probably something else.

Tried... the issue remains.

Apart form AppData is there another folder where Avidemux portable saves settings/profile/anything?

Note: I only use the portable version. I only installed the regular version to test the issue and uninstalled when I saw there wasn't a difference.

I use Malwarebytes Free version, so it's not running real-time.

I'm not certain if some part of Malwarebytes Free version would still be active?
If you have access to a second windows computer where you could test avidemux?
Could be just your computer, or some regional windows issue?
Hard to tell what is exactly going on ...

I have tested the portable version on my work laptop (Win7 64bit)  and it works fine.

Windows 10 issue? Computer issue?
- via windows 10 software remove installed avidemux installations
- next with file browser
-- search option include hidden files/ system folders
-- search for avidemux*
-- remove all remaining found avidemux* on your system drive
-- see if you then get a portable avidemux working (see AQUAR posting: regarding avidemux_portable.exe (http://avidemux.org/smif/index.php/topic,16753.msg74722.html#msg74722))

AFAIK the portable version of ADM has its operational parameters contained to the folder where ADM is located.

Really nothing much we can do to resolve a localised windows 10 issue here.
Just some suggestions:
. Verify the windows installation by running the system file checker program.
. Do system scans with anti malware programs (check out the bleeping computer web site!).
. Do a restricted startup by disabling all user startup programs (using MSCONFIG).
Throughout these efforts keep trying the portable ADM.

Portable & normal are the same
The ONLY difference is from where they load the plugins/config file

I run sfc /scan, and DISM /CheckHealth, both reported no issues.
Tried Safe Mode, still no luck.

I just did a clean install of Win10 64 build 14332, disabled Windows Defender, no AV installed and STILL no luck (and this is with the portable version!!!)
What's going on?!?

Is it just me?

EDIT: I do get this when I try to run gpedit.msc (this is on the new clean install)

That template is to set automated updating of maps.

"Group Policy Editor" (gpedit.msc) (can allow/disallow plenty what a user can/can't do)
Most likely you need to download Group Policy Editor updated templates ...
Looks like you done something more then the average windows user.

I think this is a tangent to the issue of not seeing the file dialogs in avidemux.
But maybe the OP can tell us what policy item is targeted that might relate to the failure of these "inter program operations".

Hi

Thanks for all your replies.

I downloaded the new ISO for Win10 Pro 64 build 14332 and did a clean install.
I only noticed the above error when I tried to use gpedit.msc
I did so to disable the Open File Security dialogue and another little tweaks that I always do, and which have never affected avidemux before.

Do other people with windows 10 have the same issue?

Even weirder, this started half way through (not when I installed) build 14316 (I am on the Fast Insider ring)
Title: Re: Windows 10 - No Open File/Save dialog
Post by: AQUAR on May 10, 2016, 10:06:57 AM
You will have to wait until other end user "catch up" with progressions in windows 10.
If the OS continues to fail to respond to ADM's open file code then others will also soon start to report the issue.

Your issue could be reported back to Microsoft as that is the purpose of being in the fast insider ring.

OK here is some more info.

I tried to add ReShade (portable) to Fallout 4 and it's stupid UI would not work.
I gave up on it, only to realise the next day that just like Avidemux, it would not 'open' to add the Fallout.exe

Here is a link (http://www.mediafire.com/download/hd25q2558um47el/ReShade+2.0.3f1.7z) to that exact package.

So, in what way is the PreviewAssistant in ReShade similar to Avidemux?

We should just see if that ticket bears fruit at some point.
IIRC the OP has this issue with a fresh install of the latest fast insider version of win 10.
Its probably an OS issue and outside the realm of avidemux.

I would think that most avidemux/windows users are not on windows 10.
And those that are would probably not be using the fast insider releases.

Avidemux enthusiasts aren't going to be of much help to you on these types of issues.
Suspect it needs to become a mainstream issue before it can be "upvoted".

The Microsoft Conglomerate would not allow free migration to windows 10 from windows 7 unless there is some kudos/payback in it for them.
The payback for them is that you, the end user, are slowly going to lose control over what the OS is meant to be used for.
Examples - meant for only approved programs, "spyware" for user profiling, cloud based subscription usage etc etc.

I refuse to downgrade to windows 10 from windows 7 (besides windows 7 is a better desktop OS).
And if window 7 becomes deprecated I'll migrate to Linux full time.
IMHO the OS is to serve my PC needs rather than being a vehicle for others to get to know me.

I do run win 10 in virtual box and don't mind the look and feel of it.

This issue smells to me like - Microsoft is telling you that "free - low budget" programs like avidemux are going to be in trouble.

Post by: Jan Gruuthuse on May 14, 2016, 11:44:06 AM
Sometimes, you can't even install a second os like ubuntu on your desktop/laptop due to restrictions implemented by UEFI bios (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) restrictions implemented by the producent.
Title: Re: Windows 10 - No Open File/Save dialog
Post by: AQUAR on May 14, 2016, 12:42:54 PM
Its why I always assemble my own PC from carefully selected parts.
No multi boot issues then with UEFI or BIOS.

Still prefer BIOS as its more familiar and also because I have no need for the features that UEFI brings.

IMHO Faiakes is on the bleeding edge of win 10 and that won't always be beneficial to the why/how you use your computer.
It will be interesting to see if this issue gets resolved.

Maybe try running avidemux with an super admin account (net user administrator /active:yes) and see if it works then.
Maybe try running avidemux in windows 7 compatibility mode.

Is that with Win+R and then paste that command?

I have...Win7 nothing...Win8 nothing...even Vista....

I have checked permissions and Avidemux has full write access for all types of users.

No, its using the command prompt (with admin rights!) to set up the "admin plus" account.
After which you have to logout and log back into that "admin plus" account.

Never tried it myself - just something I read for getting install executable's on win10 to run when nothing else works (including the "normal admin" account!).
Thought it would be interesting to see if some permission issue exists but is allowed with such an account.

IT WORKS !!!

So, what is the difference then between a local admin account and a 'super' admin account that Avidemux needs to overcome?
Title: Re: Windows 10 - No Open File/Save dialog
Post by: AQUAR on May 15, 2016, 12:33:05 PM
Microsoft taking control!!!!!!!!!!?
If it was me I'd investigate the beefed up "security" measures.

Purely speculative:
The implementation of the open file calling function is probably being hamstrung by win 10 for security reasons.
If that's the case the cross compiler used to build avidemux might catch up with any new requirements for that function (sooner or later).

Don't stay logged on as a super admin.

Post by: AQUAR on May 16, 2016, 11:46:58 AM
@ Jan

I don't think that will work.
This super admin account is not a normal user defined admin account.

Only came across this "trick" on a site where they were discussing how to run installation binaries that fail to execute even with all administrative rights.

Windows 10 is a continually evolving OS and morphs by way of with forced updates for the typical home based user.
It seems to be going down the path of only running certified programs.
(Certified by Microsoft or by business doing self certification for their own programs).

There must a myriad of programs that windows 10 will eventually refuse to execute (maybe ADM will be one of them).

I despise any service that data mines or takes control on protective pretence (stupid users that need to be told what they need!).

Thanks Jan

I did but more importantly it gave me an idea.

I run cmd with Admin Priviliges > secpol.msc  >  Local Policies > Security Options > User Account Control: Run All administrators in Admin Approval Mode > Disabled
(This may require Windows 10 Admin templates installed)


I don't have to switch to super Admin to get Avidemux to work.
Avidemux works from both the C and the D drive.

Well, that narrows the issue down to the differences between win 10 UAC and win 7 UAC.

Start button not working is a common complaint on windows 10.
Just google on that and you will find lots of ideas on how to fix that.

Its been an interesting post that may well serve to help other ADM/win10 users .

@ Faiakes,

As I pointed out before - its quite possible that windows 10 handles API's more strictly for security reasons.
The compilers (including QT) will eventually catch up with these "features".

Meanwhile, can always keep exploring possibilities.

Avidemux executables are going to be at the mercy of these build processes.

My advice, don't run programs you need on the bleeding edge (not even avidemux itself!) unless you are willing to put up with instabilities.

Well for the time being, I will be switching to the Administator account.

Perhaps the development team should track and publish which Win10 builds works fully with.

I think it was fine up to build 14295 (10.0.14295.1005 ) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_10_version_history (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_10_version_history)

I don't think the ADM development team should or would track OS versions for compatibility.

As I said, eventually the open source contributors that work on compilers will catch up with OS developments.
That aspect is totally beyond the control of ADM developers as they are simply an enduser of these compilers  (just like we are just endusers of avidemux).

About the next post:
I am sure that a tracking log would be appreciated by windows 10 users.
Lets keep the log as the last entry in this thread so that it becomes easy to page and check if there is any change.

Hmmm, I seem to be narrowing down the issue.

I was forced to do a 'refresh' of my windows 10 installation and Avidemux was working as expected.

It would appear that my habit of disabling the the 'Open File - Security Warning' is related to it.
As soon as I applied the usual tweaks, the issue returned (and it would not go away even after I reverted said tweaks).

The tweaks are:
1) http://www.door2windows.com/disable-open-file-security-warning-message/ (http://www.door2windows.com/disable-open-file-security-warning-message/)
2) But more likely this:  http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/182353-open-file-security-warning-enable-disable.html
(Option 3)
It seems to have to do with the 'Attachment Manager'.
Now, I know this was a Windows 7 tweak, but it works either way.

I did make a system image this time, so I was able to restore my settings and all is well now.


EDIT: I booted up this morning and the issue has returned...I give up.

The issue is solved by using the built-in Admin account, so Linux is not necessary.
