I have created a shortcut to a folder on a Windows XP Pro system using Win32::Shortcut. When I click on the shortcut, it asks which application I want to open the shortcut in, which is incorrect functionality. If I open the properties of the shortcut and change any single item (delete one character from comment, change icon, change screen mode), and apply the change the shortcut will now work as it should, opening the directory. I created a shortcut to the same directory manually and compared the elements side by side (using Win32::Shortcut and loading in the values) and nothing other than size is different. System generated shortcut is 1kb and the Perl one is 2kb.
Is this a known issue? Any workarounds?
