Listary can't start control panel items (*.cpl)


#1

As the subject says, Listary can’t start control panel items.
They are found with Listary but you can’t start them.
Explorer and other file managers are starting them without problems.


#2

Something is either wrong with your install or windows system.

Works fine in X64 windows 10 here


#3

Its Listary 5.00.2664 under Windows 10 x64, Creators Update.
Its definitely a Listary problem as all other tools and several file managers can start cpl files.
All other functions of Listary are ok, so its not an install problem.
I know what I’m doing and I’m also programming since many years.

Same exact scenario here except I am running v2581. Where did you get v2664 from? Link me and i’ll test for u

Maybe create a portable Listary install and try again? Rebuild index?

How do you access control panel items? EDIT: That’s the discrepancy. I manually create shortcuts from control panel in a folder and have listary index them.

EDIT 2: got 2664. Control panel links work fine. Launching Ctrl panel works too. I don’t know where to get .cpl files to test out


#5

Your Windows has a lot of cpl files under C:\windows\system32*.cpl
Listary has no problems to find them all

Thank you for reporting. This issue will be resolved in Listary 6.
