Nevertheless, a quick read through that thread suggests that there was, then, no way to install EDP once, for all users. Does that mean that if I want it to work from both my admin id and my day-to-day id, I need to run the installer twice, once from each id? I don't however want to have two sets of all the EDP source code, plugins etc. How is it mean to be done?
The software can be installed once, for one of your accounts. Then you can export your settings and import them when you run EDP from your second account. This will create a copy of your settings on the second account's Registry key.

so the word "empty" in unnecessary.
I disagree on this. I mean: I was indeed fooled (don't count on my memory! :wink: ) and, as I wrote, to add a little word isn't such a big effort. :)
I'm still not sure I agree but we'll give it another look.

The next version will have "File older (empty)" instead of "File folder".
Sorry but I don't understand. What does it mean? Where is it written?
In the Type column.

What I mean is simply to change the caption in the lower left corner of a pane that says "Total: xx directory, yy files" with "Total: xx empty directory, yy files" to make things straight also for absent-minded like me. Of course only in recursive mode.
That's all.
Like I said, we'll look at this again.

A-ha! Now I see.

First of all, I rarely look at that column. My screen is a classical 4/3 so the real estate is devoted to more important things. I go to that column only if a need a sorting by type.

Second: that column is tied to windows. indeed on my computer it says "Cartella di file". Do you really want to fiddle with the various windows localizations?

Third: I agree that adding "empty" there is practically useless.

Agree, we'll not change the column text. And we'll add the word "empty" to the small status bars.
