Hi,
Is there any reason why you want to use 10-year old software?

Thank you.

No,
Actually we didn't upgrade one of our application which is in older version (wx 2.8).
but we want to use this in win 10.

And i'm facing issues in win 10 with wx 2.8 version.
The issues is with wxFileDialog. It is not opening the given location, it is opening the desktop as default.

Hi,
You need to upgrade this software against a new version as well.
I vaguely remember a bug of that nature that was fixed "recently". SO presumably upgrading to 3.1 will fix this one as well as a lot of other different things.

Thank you.

Hi,
Can you try with Git HEAD?

Thank you.

Please compile and run the code from my post in this thread: viewtopic.php?t=42293. Report back with results. The issue pops up here and there but so far it was always the programmer error.

What is Git HEAD??
This means the latest development version from the Github repository:
https://github.com/wxWidgets/wxWidgets
Use the source, Luke!
