I'm running Vim 8.0 on a Windows 7 system and I'm having this issue whenever I open gvim (the one that runs in a window as opposed to running in
cmd) the default path in
c:\users\"user". If I use the
:Explore command it brings up the file explorer showing all the files in there but I can only go up in file paths up to
c:\users and that's it, I can't go any upper than that.
More than that if I use the
:cd command to go to a different drive (
d:), it does change the directory successfully and it does show it if i use
:pwd. But if I use
:Explore, it doesn't show anything, instead it just does a split screen of the same file containing the same text i have in the initial file.
Furthermore, if I create an
asdasd.txt file in
d:\ and open it with Vim and then use
:Explore, again it does nothing, just goes back to the same line of text I was on in command mode, almost as if the program is looking for access to that directory or cancelling the command because of something like that.
Also, I used Vim 7.4 before this and the commands mentioned worked as expected. Any ideas what the problem might be? Does it need any special configuration?
