File | Open does not support UNC path

Reported by: Floyd-ATC Owned by: azawawi
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: editor Version: 0.47
Keywords: open UNC file name Cc:


When trying to open a file on a remote computer using a UNC path, the open silently fails. Here's how to reproduce the problem:

  1. Select "File" | "Open" (or click the toolbar "Open" button)
  2. Type
    servername and hit enter
  3. Browse to the desired file and click "Open".

Expected result:
The selected file should open in the editor

Actual result:
Open fails silently, no error notification.
The console shows an (incorrect) error message:

"No such file or directory when trying to open 'atlas/floyd/perl_opengl_examples/' at C:/strawberry/perl/site/lib/Padre/Wx/ line 2662."

The file does indeed exist and opens normally in Notepad.
