Hello, what version of Circle Dock are you using? If you have a version before Alpha 8, go to http://circledock.wikidot.com and download Alpha 8.

Hmm,
I'm assuming you have Windows XP and that when you normally double-click .LNK icons in Windows, they open up programs correctly. Some people had problems with this before Alpha 8 and using non-English operating systems but with Alpha 8, people said the problem was solved. Could you right-click on one of the icons in Circle Dock that is giving you the problem and go into the "Item Settings" panel for it and provide a screenshot? That way, we can see what path Circle Dock is trying to open up. Normally, Circle Dock should be able to find the target executable for a .LNK icon and not actually open the .LNK icon itself.

Hello,
Can you right-click on the icon on Circle Dock itself and select the "Item Settings" option to see what the target link Circle Dock is trying to open? When you open the "Item Settings" window, you will see the path to the file Circle Dock is trying to execute. Circle Dock automatically finds the target of .lnk shortcuts so you should see the actual target file path and not something with .lnk. Please provide a screenshot if possible.

Hello,

The panel shown in your screenshot is not from Circle Dock itself. I need to see the Item Settings panel as shown in the screenshots below:

RightClickMenu.jpgpb with shortcut drag/drop to circle dock1
ItemSettings.jpgpb with shortcut drag/drop to circle dock2

The problem may be because of the French language of your system but I have others who use French and don't have the error.

I don't think that it's a language problem, because I have just downloaded it in English and have exactly the same problem.  My screenshots would be exactly the same as those above, and I downloaded it (twice, to make sure) from the correct source.  I am also using 0.9.2 Alpha 8.  Any other ideas?

I will try setting up a file structure with the file path in that screenshot and see what happens. From that screenshot, it shows Circle Dock is trying to open up the .lnk file and from the results it seems that is not happening. As a work around for now, couple you manually find the real file path for that executable and replace the .lnk link with the real path? That way, Circle Dock will try to directly open up the real file. For some reason, it appears that for that file, Circle Dock could not resolve the real file path from that .lnk.
