## Re: [h-e-w] Showing file names with emacs+emacsW32

Hello,

I solved the problem by changing the file type "EmacsFile" properties in the windows explorer.
File association -> .c (for example) ->  advanced  -> modfy  -> add  qoutation marks ("...") around  c:\Program Files\Emacs\bin\emacsclientw

It works now just fine.
That's maybe something you want to look at for the coming release.

Thanks,

Thanks for telling this. I will look into this for the patched version.
However it would be good if someone else tested with the released
version of Emacs and sent a bug report if the bug is there too. (From
"Help - Send Bug Report" in Emacs.)
