Removed in 4.1.0 Rev 2

The context menu option is now turned off by default and will be switched off on next launch if a user accidentally enables it.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Sorry, Details

Sorry, I thought your issue was that it was adding the context menu to Explorer that wasn't working. Is the app failing as you launch TreeSizeFreePortable.exe directly? Could you please post the exact error?

Not Supported

Adding context menus to Explorer is not supported in our portable apps as they would then not be portable. The reason for the error you see is that the configuration files are moved to the Data folder when the app is not in use for easy backups and preservation when upgrading. When you associate it with Explorer, it's launching the app directly (not our portable launcher) and it can't find its settings. If you'd like to associated it with a context menu entry in Explorer, please use either their portable package or the locally installed version.

File

As mentioned above, if you tell me the exact error I may be able to assist more. Keep in mind, though, that the launcher will force it to disable on every launch as adding context menus to Explorer is not in any way portable.
