ShellExecute Bug - NT 4 SP6

ShellExecute Bug - NT 4 SP6

ShellExecute Bug - NT 4 SP6


just try this :

ShellExecute(this->GetSafeHwnd(), NULL, "C:\\Program Files", NULL, NULL, SW_SHOWNORMAL);
ShellExecute(this->GetSafeHwnd(), NULL, "C:\\temp", NULL, NULL, SW_SHOWNORMAL);

(you can put it on a button click from a blank MFC-AppWizard application).

I try it on two PC with both windows NT 4.0 and SP 6.

Two windows explorer are open (this is normal), and the cpu charge grow up to 100 % and our application windows does no more refresh (this is *not* normal). I have check that both shellexecute return immediately.

Under Windows 2000 it does not append.

Somebody can try under win9x ?
Somebody had a fix for it ?
