Hello, Mirek.

I researched the problem and found that there are different .lnk files on my desktop.
I attached three of them.
The file СТМ32.lnk points to local directory and it works OK.
Other two files point to network and don't work (they are opened as empty files).
All the .lnk files are shown as files, not as folders (it would be better).

Best regards,
Victor


Well, sending .lnk files does not really help Smile

Can you test this for me:

#include <CtrlLib/CtrlLib.h>

using namespace Upp;

GUI_APP_MAIN
{
	String path = "C:/Users/cxl/Desktop/Files.lnk";
	
	DDUMP(path);
	DDUMP(FileExists(path));
	String t = GetSymLinkPath(path);
	DDUMP(t);
	DDUMP(DirectoryExists(t));
}


Please replace path with other dirs that do now work too and send me the .log file.

As for showing .lnk as files, well, not all .lnk lead to dirs. Unfortunately detecting that .lnk points to dir is potentially time consuming so it has to be done 'later'. BTW it looks like windows shell also shows .lnk of dirs between files, probably for the same reason...
