It seems that Win7 x64 explorer is broken in that it does not display
the Title from a PDF file, in the title column.
under XP, the Title column in explorer displays the PDF title.

This is over a network share. anyone come across this ?
Any insite on how to fix?

Cheers

Maybe, I couldn't say. None of the PDF file are highlighted. Nor do they
need to be highlighted.
The only time I seen this problem in XP was when I uninstalled something
on a XP machine.
I don't remember what, and I don't recall what I reinstalled to get it
working again ;(

Apparently it is broken, But you can get titles if the directory is
indexed.
One way is to right click on Libraries (left side of window) and add a
new library and point it to the directory.
But it doesn't work for shares, but it might work for mapped drives.
(haven't tried)
