Some apps can open files, some cannot. looks like question mark in the path at end of Family in the path


#1

one app (Arachniphilia) says invalid path, and shows the path with question mark in it.

Z:\Family?\data-files…

other app (TextPad 8) gives me an invalid parameter value error message.

if I send to or open with any Windows OS App (Paint, Paint 3d, Notepad, Word, WordPad, it opens fine.

it was working fine previously. I uninstalled latest Win10 update, but no changes.

thoughts?

@thebratguy not all apps support special characters in the path. I know that RoboCopy doesn’t as well.
