  • Hi Bar,

     

    It would help if you could give me some more information about the issue. Could you please answer the following questions?

     

    1. Did you log in as an Administrator?

    2. How did you respond to the UAC prompt if it appeared?

    3. Which folders are trying to rename, all folders or just a specified one?

    4. Where is the folder located, on the local drive or a networking/mapping drive?

    5. Please kindly write down and upload the exact error message you have encountered.

     

    We might try the following folder rename tool first to see whether it could be helpful. To simplifies the troubleshooting process, please follow the link below and download "Folder_rename_fix_32.zip"

    http://www.biline.ca/dl_files/Folder...x_Vista_32.zip

     

    To install the file:

     

    1. Download the Folder_rename_fix_Vista_32.zip and extract the file which is called 'FD32.reg'.

    2. Double click the FD32.reg file (Note: If prompted, please click Continue on the User Account Control (UAC) window.)

    3. You'll get a registry editor warning asking "Are you sure you want to continue", please click Yes.

     

    If you can't install that way, please extract it to a specific location, let's say drive C:\, then go Start button-> copy and paste "regedit c:\FD32.reg" (without the quotation marks) in the Start Search box and click Enter. It should also pop up the registry editor warning box and click Yes.

     

    I hope it would fix that rename problem in your pc!

  • Does it happen with all folders or just one specific folder?

  • FD32.reg didn't work ? I can't rename any folders, anywhere and I have Admin rights ?

  • Please start you own thread.  You are responding to an obsolete thread that began way back in August 2008.
