[Fav toolbar] Translate relative path to absolute path

I prefer to use relative paths for my favorites.

If I use relative path for a folder in favorite toolbar, I got stuck with that folder in active tab. I can't move from there anymore.
I suppose the relative path must be change to absolute path before it is used in tab's address bar.

Thanks

Try defining a path relative to "FreeCommander.exe".
"%FcAppDataPath%" shouldn't be there.
Try "..\AutoIt\Scripts".
Relative paths work OK for me.

For some reason, if I use your example the folder is opened in Windows Explorer and not in a tab. I would like to have it opened in a fc tab.
Of course, for exe files the relative paths work, but not for folders, at least like I'd prefer.

Sorry, I've read your message wrong!
I tested only the Favorite items and it works fine there:

In Favorite toolbars there is something wrong, you're right.
There must be a workaround, but I'm too sick (cold) to find it now...

You could try drive-less absolute paths, maybe it's enough for your application (replace X: with %FcSrcDrive%).
