shortcuts to programs do not work in DOS box

#1 Post by LuisM » 22.09.2020, 17:38

Hi,
I have created shortcuts for several executable files. I have put those shortcuts in my computer PATH. And I have added the extension for shortcuts (.LNK) to my computer PATHEXT system environmental variable. So, I can call those programs from command lines or from scripts, without adding their directories to my computer PATH.

The shortcuts work with the default Windows 10 x64 shell, CMD.exe. They do not work with the "DOS box" of "FreeCommander XE 2020 Build 810a 32-bit public". The error message says:
C:\Portable\x64\7z.lnk
The specified path does not exist.

Both the "DOS box" and CMD.exe have the same PATH and PATHEXT system environmental variables. I tried changing the "DOS box command specification" to "cmd.exe", but it did not help.

Thanks for a great program and best regards.
