Fixed: HxD: Trouble opening files when open methods mixed

Post by mhurley » 16 May 2008 18:28

With 1.7.6

1. Make sure the HxD folder is in your PATH
2. Open some files with the right-click context menu. Refer to these files' folder as FOLDERA.
3. Go to a command prompt window and CD to a different folder than the files opened in step 2. Call this FOLDERB.
4. Run "hxd FILENAME"
5. HxD will show a message box saying "Cannot open FOLDERA\FILENAME for read access" when it should have shown (and tried to open) FOLDERB\FILENAME.

Thanks for the report.

It was a problem due to different working directories in different HxD instances. When a file name is not prefixed with a path (such as when passing just a file name using the cmdline) the the wrong working directory was assumed (the one of the already existing instance instead of the newly created one).

Fixed in development version.
