V2.1i COREGEN, WINDOWS: Problems launching Web browser .exe executable from CORE Generator if Windows Explorer "Hide file extensions" Folder option is enabled (verify)

Description

Keywords: explorer, file, extension, web, browser, core

Urgency: standard

General Description:
When browsing to the Netscape executable to specify the Web browser
location for CORE Generator with the Windows Explorer "Hide file extensions
for known file types" Folder option enabled, the CORE Generator will not be
able to launch the browser.

CORE Generator appears to have a problem with the fact that the file name
loaded is "netscape" instead of netscape.exe.

Solution

To correct this problem:

From the Windows Explorer Menu, select "Folder Options" and disable
the setting, "Hide file extensions for known file types" under the "View"
tab
