Not sure if this is new or an old bug, and not a huge deal but kind of annoying nonetheless.

If a scenario has both a DOC and PDF documentation, clicking the documentation link will open both, as well as an extra copy of the DOC.

So on my system, clicking on documentation for Ardennes 1944, opens my PDF reader (Sumatra PDF) with "Ardennes 1944.pdf", as well as *two* copies of "Ardennes 1944.doc" in LibreOffice. The second of which will be read-only since it's already open...

Same here, works fine. Using Non-Steam v4.1.0.4

EDIT: I use PDF Exchange and Apache Open Office.

i've now tried steam as well, latest v4.1.0.4 version, with no errors in opening or more than one at a time anyway, so something in the permissions or file selection maybe?

Did you guys try scenarios where there's both a PDF and a DOC, for example Ardennes 1944?

Or there are a couple others:

Destruction of Army Group Center 1944
Road to Moscow I Crossing the Border
Road to Moscow II Smolensk
Road to Moscow III Guderian
Road to Moscow IV Kiev
Road to Moscow V Vyazma
etc

Check the new scenario folder under the "program files (x86)"

And yeah I got the bug too. Noticed yesterday that there were duplicate doc files but didn't try to open it.

That looks like part of the Steam thing, which I don't participate in.

Nope, so maybe you have a version later than v4.1.0.4 for which that folder was added for Steam ?

I'm starting to suspect this might happen if one runs *both* the Steam and the Matrix versions, like I have done.

Meyer - have you done the same?

These are the files I have for Ardennes 1944 for instance:

Ardennes 1944.bmp	88 776	01.10.2018 17:34	-a--
Ardennes 1944.doc	315 392	01.10.2018 17:38	-a--
Ardennes 1944.pdf	814 952	02.10.2018 03:00	-a--
Ardennes 1944.SCE	428 750	02.10.2018 02:59	-a--

Yeah I got those. And just reinstalled and updated with the "game menu" utility (after 2 hours trying) and got the same.
