#32 PAR2 data files not found


I am running QuickPar 0.7.5 on Windows 2000+SP4, and
I have set QuickPar to be the default application
for .PAR and .PAR2 files. I have found that
occassionally (not always) when I double-click the .PAR
or .PAR2 file, then QuickPar launches but lists no data
files. If I then use the Open command in the QuickPar
GUI to open the .PAR/.PAR2 file all the data files are
found without problems.

I am more than happy to provide additional diagnostic
information if someone tells me what would be useful.

    Can you use Regedit to check the value of
    It should be something like:

    "C:\Program Files\QuickPar\QuickPar.exe" "%1"

    Note the %1 is surrounded by quote marks.

    The key is set to:
    "R:\_NBPRO\QuickPar.exe" "%1"
    which looks inline with the format that you were expecting?

    Note: I only seem to be getting these problems for .PAR2
    files I originally thought I was getting it for .PAr files as well,
    but I suspect I was wrong about that), as the .PAR files that
    are also associated with QuickPar seem to be working fine.

    I have noticed that when I double-click on a .PAR2 file that
    the name displayed will look something like "FITNES~2.PAR" -
    in other words it is the dos compatible shortname format. Is
    this likely to be what is causing the problem (and is there
    anything I can do about it)?
