After starting from scratch with both Core and GUI on the same Windows machine (music files residing on a NAS) the “Open file location” link has disappeared from the “View file info” screen.
It used to be there previously when I had the “full Roon” installed. After having had performance issues (see Applying library settings taking several days after Core migration), I decided to go with a separate installation of, first RoonServer and, secondly the Roon GUI.
But both are still installed on the very same Windows machine. Why then can’t I use this “Open file location” link anymore? It is such a fuss having to copy the file path to the clipboard first and then start a new windows explorer and then navigate to the desired folder!
From a reaction by @dylan I learned that this behaviour is by design. So herewith I propose to change this behaviour so that the “Open file location” link will also appear in the “View file info” screen whenever a user has decided to NOT install the “full Roon” but instead has installed a Roonserver first and a Full Roon later of which then only the Control (GUI) is used. For me at least the latter setup has helped to cure some performance issues with a Full Roon install that used its own core. Others in the community had suggested I do this, so I assume that I’m not the only one having such a “split” setup.
