Yes, works for me just fine. Sorry to confuse you about the 1.74

That is the error message I get from Ztree not explorer.

I would make up a quick photo and text and send it to you as a pdf showing you in detail but there is no private email here. It always has, so I guess telling you that it is Windows 64 Pro and the build all would be useless. There must be a reason it works for me and not you. I have Group Policy set.

Aha! It is as I suspected. In opening the file in File Viewer Lite (context menu from Explorer - Open ) - it opened just fine but in addition it shows me the value that was passed to the program.


Note - I had to copy the above line as best I could using a Screen Reader which messed up so I had to edit - so not sure about the single quote after How.

So It is passing a modified path to the program. That is how Xnview is opening (and probably other programs) LFN from Explorer but it still doesn't explain why I can and you can't. I checked the Display settings under Advanced and there is nothing in there that would indicate anything that would make a difference.
