CHM file not opened in FAR 3 Build 5254 x64 from user menu

Post by tomyam » Wed 03 Oct, 2018 07:12

In my user menu, I have chm files entered as follows, c:\fwh\manual\fwcmd.chm

With previous FAR version these were working fine. After I've upgraded to FAR 3 Build 5254 x64, it stopped working.

I just discovered a workaround and now I changed my user menu to start c:\fwh\manual\fwcmd.chm

FarMenu.ini

Code: Select all

:    Test
     C:\Far\Encyclopedia\luafar_manual.chm
Works fine with Far 3.0 build 5273 x86 on Windows 10.0.17763.1 x64

Thank you for your interest topmo3.

After selecting the option from the user menu I'll get the message,
' "fwcmd.chm" ' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
However if I navigate to the folder where the file is, selecting it by pressing Enter, it will appear as expected.

I'm using Windows 10 Pro x64 version 1803 Build 17134.285
