Description sos 2009-03-18 18:01:41 UTC
Windows shortcuts are seen als a "file" and not as a "shortcut" when suing OO-
dialogs instead off System Dialogs 
I found a soluting for Filepickerdialogs run from the API:
Sub test( ) 
Dim oleService , wso
Dim sFilePickerArgs  
sFilePickerArgs = Array
dlgFile = CreateUnoService ("")
with dlgFile
		.SetMultiselectionMode (false)
		.Title = "Kies Attachement"
	    .setDisplayDirectory(ConverttoURL(spath )) 
  	END with

	sSluitpicker = dlgFile.Execute ()
	If 	sSluitpicker = 1 Then
		Dim selFiles() As Object
		selFiles = dlgFile.GetFiles()
		sFilePath = convertfromurl(selFiles(0))
	   	END If
	If 	sSluitpicker = 0 Then
    exit sub
if  ucase( right(sfilepath,4)) = ".LNK" then ' it's a Shortcut
print "hier"
oleService = createUnoService("") 
wso = oleService.createInstance("Wscript.Shell") ' is pressent on every Windows 
'fso = oleService.createInstance("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
linkje = wso.CreateShortcut(sFilepath)
print linkje.targetpath 
print "Normal filepicker procedure"
End Sub

please do something simular for the dialogs run in the GUI

Opening a shortcut brings the target file correctly.

Wrongly marked as FIXED, Summary explicitly mentions " OO-dialogs" (opposite of OS-Dialogs! 

Still Reproducible with server installation of "AOO 4.1.0-Dev – English UI / German locale - [AOO410m1(Build:9750) - Rev. 1562493 - 2014-01-30]" on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)", own separate user profile.

So reopened!

This one is a DUP of "Bug 4306 - AOO File dialog opens *.lnk itself as document instead of opening linked document"
