after doubleclicking a .cfx file in Windows Explorer or a Desktop shortcut to the cfx-file, ChemFinder 17 opens but only the frame of the application and the toolbars are visible, the form isn`t visible.
I have to click File/Open and select the wanted file, after that the file opens with a visible form.

This behaviour is new, doubleclick worked fine before.

Could it be possible that the change to Windows10 and/or the update to ChemOffice 17 causes the problem ?

thanks in advance,

I just tried opening one of the sample file CS_Demo.cfx from the below location of my Windows 7 machine and was able to open the ChemFinder database with all fields visible.


Can you please try the same? If you continue to have the issue, please contact
