Having Trouble While Working on FreeBASIC Compiler

Post by OrinKling »

Greetings to all my friends, I recently installed FreeBASIC Compiler and updated Windows 10. But I am experiencing a serious issue, after updating when I am working on it I received this error message "explorer.exe class not registered." I heard most of the Windows users encountered this issue after installing the OS. But I am not sure whether the error is having due to install the tool or something any other issue. Could someone please help me to solve the issue?

Don't put freebasic in Program Files folder in Win 10.
Try extracting the .zip version into a dedicated folder, maybe even on your desktop.

Thank you for approving the post. But friend after searching online I came across this post and they recommended to use this command

regsvr32 ExplorerFrame.dll

But I am a little confused if this method will perform perfectly or not. Do you have any idea about this or any other solutions which mentioned in the article? Plzzzz help

I have never used the command regsvr32 ExplorerFrame.dll
I hope it works.
I have had win 10 behave in weird ways, losing all my file associations for example.
I put up with it for a few weeks, then suddenly it rectified itself, probably with an automatic update.

Thank you for your suggestions, yes I applied this command and it worked. Now I have no longer any issues while working on it.
