      A serious bug!

      Same here, looks like the problem is that GetFullPathName is called twice when multiple instances are disabled and the second one sends a message to the first one :
      - once in the second instance when it notifies the first instance
      - twice when the first instance receives the message

        Yse, it's due to GetFullPathName function.

        No, GetFullPathName is not called twice, but it concatenates whole path on original full path because of "".

        I update the binary file here (only binary) :

        Please confirm me if this problem is solved.

            Thank you lorbass.

            It's really nice to confirm me for it.
            So that I can do the release.

      I downloaded the program on 1/12/2006 and it, version 3.4, exhibits the same non-functionality.

      If I attempt to open a file from within windows explorer whicle v3.4 is open, the latest opened file replaces the previously opened file!

      Where do I get the fix?

      Thanks,

      Paul
