    taking a hint from the trainer manager (thats's running way too slow for my taste), I put all my trainers in a folder and put it onto windows 10's taskbar.

    Having an issue with some trainers (example: nier automata) not waiting for me to click the firewall acknowledge (displaying a notification about no internet connection and getting the key), I got the offline key, and found it's not recognized when launching from the toolbar, only when running from inside the folder, defeating the point of the toolbar.

    Nothing I can reproduce here on my side.

    The TM's location on my system is C:\Program Files\ (64-bit) and the default trainer folder here -> C:\My Trainers\ with my offline key, the TM exe is excluded in the security software and obviously launched with admin rights.

    I see no difference in launching times when offline or online between the TM's toolbar and the trainer directly. The offline key is recognized both ways.


    Please create a new offline key only this time launch the offline key creator tool with admin rights.

    I'm not using the trainer manager, i integrated my trainer folder into the taskbar. The folder is D:\ \ (protected space), it is supposed to appear only as >> and hiding the folder title allways displays one of the entrys. I tested to ensure the trainer is not breaking against the [protected space], and it indeed works when launched from inside the folder.

    However, launching from the toolbar seems to have a different folder environment variable (comparable to a .lnk with an 'start in' value), causing the trainer exe to not be able to detect the key.

    I repeat, there is no issue with the normal operation of the trainer, the key or the folder path, only when trying to launch from the toolbar as indicated in the screenshot will the key go undetected.

    What's this protected space you mention? Some kind of security software thing to protect certain areas and file locations against malware?

    If yes, then likely that's the reason why it doesn't work as a shortcut from the toolbar.

    protected space is the designation they chose for alt+0160, it's different from a normal space symbol but looks the same. it lets you name folders to [blank]. A normal space is ignored and reverted to the last name given.

    Again, that is not the issue here since I have no problems launching the trainer from the explorer window, only launching it from the toolbar menu in the taskbar lets the .key file go undetected for whatever reason.

    Ok, thank you for clarifying ... and I think your approach is a bit too excessive for our poor little offline key file.

    I wouldn't know why but okay.

    I just verified using a .bat file that running from the toolbar should not interfere with path, normaly - echo %0 returns D:\ \bat.bat as intended.

    Why the trainer doesn't "see" the key evades my perception as I don't know how your program looks it up in the first place, but I fear it's some parameter lookup or other that returns the wrong path in my use case and that's a bummer.

    I wonder if the key is not launching as windows os exe from the toolbar.
    From my old days of qa'ing on windows oses, I think I femember something about this happening. Its something about how windows launches things from the toolbar the same as if its from the Metro window, ie as an app from the windows store instead of from the os itself.
    It may be that they are launching it like a folder from what is now xbox (formerly metro). Where, if you use an actual exe it uses windows to launch it. So, try putting just the actual exe as a toolbar shortcut to see if it works, and if it does, then thats the problem, and you wont be able to use a whole folder to launch an app inside the folder.
