#49 closed defect (wontfix)

File dialogs and "not ready" drives

Reported by: rudi Owned by: dmik
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: 3rdparty Version:
Severity: normal Keywords:


If the user selects a drive that is not ready (empty floppy or CD) from the file open dialog, the OS/2 critical error box will show up. However, it is necessary to acknowledge "Return error code to program" 9 (nine !!!) times, before it is possible to continue.

My suggested workaround is to generally disable critical error popups by for example adding


to qt_init() in qapplication_pm.cpp.

Actually, I did exactly the same thing (see but then decided to remove it for the reason stated in the comment above that line. In other words, if you don't like this behavior you should add SET AUTOFAIL=YES to your config.sys.

Closing the defect for now; feel free to reopen if you have good objections.
