Ticket #446 (closed defect: worksforme)
DirWatch doesn't like Windows symbolic links
|Reported by:||Philip||Owned by:||wacko|
|Priority:||Nice to Have||Milestone:||Alpha 2|
If I create a symbolic directory link (via mklink /d on Vista) for e.g. the mods/public/art directory (so I can share it with another installation of the game), then DirWatchManager::Add constructs a PDirWatchRequest which has m_dirHandle.m_hDir = 0xffffffff and then it raises an error in CompletionPort::Attach. Other things fail later on.
It'd be nicer if worked. (But it already works fine with junctions (mklink /j) instead of symlinks, so it's not a serious lack of functionality.)
