Sorry, there was no time to add this to TC 8.51 - it would require quite a lot of changes. Therefore I have added just the most common case. Maybe in a later release.

Great, thanks. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't forgotten.

Mal angenommen, du drückst Strg+F, wählst die FTP-Verbindung (mit gespeichertem Passwort), klickst aber nicht auf Verbinden, sondern fällst tot um.

Time passes...

As I now have two small kids, I haven't been as active a computer user as I was, but the problem outlined in this thread still bothers me from time to time. Hence, I just wanted to ask if anyone has come up with a satisfactory (global) solution or whether users are still putting up with unnecessarily pressing Ctrl-Up a lot to get back up out of those pseudo-archives?

To recap (edited quote):
a clean and comprehensive solution should be found for the new Office file / archive issue. It is true that this nuisance has become more and more troublesome with more and more office files existing in the .xml format.

IIRC, the problem [still] occurs in the following contexts:

1. Pressing Ctrl-Left/-Right on a .lnk file pointing to a .Officex file
2. Entering a path ending with a .Officex file in either of these situations:
a. from inside the TC command line
b. in the breadcrumb bar [Don't use this myself, so not sure if this is still an issue]
c. when calling TOTALCMD.EXE from Windows to set a new folder / focus for viewing with a path ending in a .Officex file as parameter ['/A' command line parameter can be used to prevent this.]
d. when setting the path with sendcopydata
Many thanks!

This has been fixed since TC 9.0 beta 1:

History.txt
29.10.14 Fixed: cd c:\path\file.docx opened the office XML file as an archive. Same when entering path in "current directory" field. Note: NOT changed: paths received via command line parameters (32/64)

Thanks for pointing that out. I guess that just leaves the sendcopydata problem (I guess only a handful of people use that anyway, but it's what prompted me to necro this thread) and having to add '/A' to command lines? That's good enough then, I guess!
