Canīt start mp4, pdf or something else with Rabbithole

I have the newest AmikitX Version 10.4.1 installed and my Host System is Win7 x64.
The Rabbithole Icons are configurated and with a double-click i can start VLC, Firefox or other Programms.
I have checked that these programms are configurated as the standard tools to run files under Windows.

But with a double-click on a .mp4 there is only the message "Versuche dopus_dclick zu starten" in the upper left ScreenTitle
and nothing happends.
If i choose an .pdf file, the Screentitle shows nothing and nothing happen.
With the "Welcome to Amikit" in Amikit: device its the same, nothing starts.

The only this that starts with a Windows tool is "Support Forum".
Here is Firefox starting perfect.

What is going wrong ?

An other question is, how to close all windows at the same time.
Normaly in OS3.9 the Shortkey is holding "right Amiga" Key and to close one open Window.

Please help.
Thank you.

Hi Tom,

did it work before? If so, did you change anything? If so, can you re-install AmiKit?

Do you use Directory Opus (default) or did you switch to Workbench or Scalos?

Regarding the Right-Amiga key, it probably works in Workbench but probably not in DOpus.

Thanks for your answer...

No, it never works and i use DOpus as default.

Now i have installed an new Version of Amikit on an diffrent PC.
Testet with and without Updates (Amikit Updates and BoingBags 1&2), with WinUAE x86 and x64.
Its always the same. Its not possible to start a mediafile with a double click.

It's so weired.

Yes, it's strange. Maybe try to update WinUAE to the latest version? Here's how: page 11.

Which source of AmigaOS have you used to install AmiKit? AmigaOS3.5, 3.9, XL or Amiga Forever?

Also make sure you are using correct ROM file. It's a reason of many "weird" problems.

Please try to use different ROM and/or AmigaOS with AmiKit.

Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello Jan,

iīve testet the new WinUAE Version 3.6.0.
Used original A1200 ROM and Cloanto A1200 3.1 and 3.x ROMs with Keyfile.
Installed from OS3.9 (first and secound Edition), AmigaForever and OS4.1FE CD-ROMs.
No diffrence.

Maybe its a problem with Windows ?.
I use for AmitKit normaly Win Home Premium x64 and now for tests Win7 Pro x86.

Thanks for you support.

Interesting. Is it the latest version of Windows 7 with all updates applied? Maybe something was changed in Windows itself? Let me check it myself as soon as I find a Win7 system here (my default setup is Macbook because I travel very often).
