So after a long time I updated my HFS and right after that I got this huge screaming WARNING!!! message about some macros right to my face... The message did not even specify what file this was all about nor what this "macros" thing means in the first place..

Now don't get me wrong, I know what macros are and I know that warning was propably about my default VFS file, but for a novice this kind of message is quite scary and could easily induce a "WTF!!11" reaction.

So please rejetto, make that message a bit more informative and lessen the exlamation marks :)

no. do you really use HFS behind a proxy?
i guess you serve only local computers, right?

you are right, but
1. i try to keep messages short, because people don't actually read long messages. So, i can't explain what macros are, but yes, i should at least specify the filename. :)
2. macros inside a vfs may delete random files on your hard disk. do you still think i should not warn people about it?
3. i may also skip the message for the default VFS file.

Yes, of course it's good to warn people. But would it be possible to make HFS 'scan' through the vfs file for those certain macros that might modify/delete any files and only display the warning when this kind of commands are found?

Sadly no, due to the nature of the language.
As a side effect, macro names can be created at run-time.

when it is ran run in vista with 'run as administrator' (32-bit version, just in case it matters), drag and drop doesn't work anymore.

everything works fine concerning the connections the disabled firewall was the problem it needs to be enabled.

drag and drop does not work. only through the right click options files and directories can be added. damn it! what could be wrong?

no, i have 6.0.6000 (no SP installed yet).
try using drag&drop with the file manager itself running as admin.
