Windows shortcut to a folder as file argument

Post by Sprintdriver » Thu Mar 13, 2014 7:21 pm

Hi.

I have a shortcut to XnView on my desktop that is convinient for dragging folders from within Windows Explorer (and other file/folder browsers as well).

However, If command line argument is a Windows shortcut, I get an error message saying "Error opening the file <nameOfTheShortcutFile>".

It would be far better if XnView could actually starting browsing the folder that the shortcut points to :D


Thanks
