spaces inside file URL not recognized

Postby Thomas Lohrum » Tue Jan 31, 2012 5:01 pm

Example of a local URL to file system:
file:///C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

CN recognizes "file:///C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start" only. Obviously the space breaks URL recognition here.

The bug is no big deal to me. Fixing has low priority, unless it would be extremely easy to fix ;)

Ok, but how would CN reliably recognize paths with spaces?
Look:
"The link to the file is file:///c:\Program Files\Some interesting file.txt - need to check this.By the way"

How would it tell that the link is not "file:///c:\Program Files\Some interesting file.txt - need to check this.By" ?

As a workaround, you can replace spaces with "%20":
file:///C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start%20Menu\Programs

Ok. This is not a bug. The workaround is actually the way to go :)
